Himalayan Grandeur Tour
Standing high in the Himalayas at an altitude of 2134m, ‘Dorje Ling’, or place of the Thunderbolt, offers breathtaking views of snow-capped mountain peaks, with the Kanchendzonga rising higher than all the others.
Darjeeling is also the home to the famous Ghoom Monastery built in 1875. Graeme Westlake in his book ‘An introduction to hill stations in India’ refers to Darjeeling as having “A view Scarcely Unrivalled on Earth”.
At an altitude of 1750m, Gangtok became the state capital in the mid 19th century and has undergone rapid development since then. The downtown area is dominated by huge government buildings decorated with traditional Buddhist symbols. Gangtok is also a resting ground for people traveling to North Sikkim. Surrounded by Monasteries and Orchids, Gangtok is truly a travellers delight.
