What to see in Darjeeling, the Tea Country – Part I

Darjeeling! The name in  itself  is enough to evoke visual imagery of verdant tea gardens, of a small train chugging excitedly up a hilly terrain, of a romantic hill station nestled high up in the mountains.

No wonder we were feeling very excited when we landed in Bagdogra, the nearest airport from where Darjeeling is a 65 kilometres drive.

Ravangla is a beautiful and enchanting place situated in the South Sikkim District of the Indian State of Sikkim, lying in the North Eastern part of the country.

We were on our North-East odyssey during the winter of last year and had the names of better known places like Darjeeling, Pelling (check out our earlier Blog Post), Kalimpong and Gangtok on our itinerary, but not Ravangla, in fact we had not really heard about the place.
