On a hot summer day, the scent of tea leaves rises from the hills and hangs like a hat over Darjeeling, encasing the wonderful things inside, such as bent trees, happy earthworms, reluctant tea-colored puddles, flowering Rhododendrons, and Magnolia plants, wild garden flowers blooming in rainbow colours, and a British bungalow with a fragile façade of greengage. Darjeeling's tourism attractions will captivate and astound visitors with the natural beauty of the region.

And when the skies open up to pound the water down, the grass appears wet-green and happy, loose soil forms off its edges, washed-off dust-green trees smile again, and the green countryside gleams in the traces of sunlight. Darjeeling, the former summer capital of India under the British Raj, is covered in dense evergreen forests of Sal and Oak, with ducks and teals creating waves in the water and rare orchid breeds spreading colours on moist soil. It has incredible panoramic views of Kanchenjunga snow peaks, beautiful colonial architecture including mansions and churches, and an influence of diverse cultures.

On a foggy day, riding aboard a classic Toy Train from the 1880s, this "Mecca of Tea," with over 80 functioning tea gardens scattered over acres of land, writes fanciful poetry about what is wonderfully described as the "Champagne of tea." The northwest winds come to Darjeeling to rip it apart, yet new lovely things appear in the first spit of spring on the northwest wind, and the old leaves fade away; neither lasts, but the beauty remains with the new and lasts forever. Darjeeling is a sight that will have your heart racing in pleasure, and the tourist attractions in Darjeeling will always make sure of it!
