Day 2 : Darjeeling: Full day to explore
Wake up early and freshen up as there is something even feistier before your daily breakfast, that you wouldn’t like to miss out.
You will be taken up the Tiger Hill to witness an everyday natural occurrence, yet too charismatic a spectacle to miss - the sunrise. On a clear day, you will get to witness gorgeous view of the sun coming out from behind the snowy peaks of the great Himalayan range, turning the colour of Mt. Kanchendzonga to pinkish-gold. So, that’s the moment when you can just hold your breath and go on clicking pictures.
After this, while returning to the hotel, you will also get to visit the 135-year old Ghoom Monastery, the Batasia Loop and the famous War Memorial dedicated to the martyred soldiers of Indian defence services. A piping-hot tea at a tea stall adds to the charm of the beautiful morning in Darjeeling. Return to the hotel as it’s time for you to refuel yourself with some wholesome breakfast at the hotel.
Relax for a while and then the second day’s Darjeeling tour itinerary now takes you out to visit the Himalayan Mountaineering Institute where not only the tourists, but also the students and volunteers come over to take part in various adventure courses.(Thursday closed). Next, you will visit some other famous and must-visit attractions in Darjeeling which include the likes of Padmaja N. Zoological Garden (Thursday closed) and the Tibetan Refugee Centre (Sunday closed). Last but not the least, a stroll at the Mall Road and shopping in the market gives you the opportunity to revel in the hustle and bustle of this hill station and collect some souvenirs to take home.
As the Darjeeling city tour ends, you will return to the hotel where a hearty dinner awaits you. Enjoy a cozy overnight stay at the hotel.
