Things to Do in Darjeeling

  • Teesta Tea and Tourism Festival

    When talking about Darjeeling, the first thing that comes to anyone’s mind is ‘tea’. Truly, there’s something about the Darjeeling tea. No wonder a festival to promote the tea culture and its variants calls for tourists from different parts of the world. Held annually, in the month of December and January, this festival is organised by West Bengal Tourism, Darjeeling Gorkha Hill Council and Sikkim Tourism.

  • Peace Pagoda

    Situated on the slopes of the Jalapahar Hill, Peace Pagoda is a symbol of peace and unity in Darjeeling. The pagoda is counted among the popular landmarks of the destination. Its foundation stone was laid by Nichidatsu Fujii, a revered monk from Japan, who founded the 'Nipponzan Myohoji Buddhist Order'.

    Inside the pagoda, there are four iridescent, gold-polished statues of Lord Buddha. The walls are adorned with eight sandstone carvings that depict stories of various stages of Gautama Buddha’s life. The divinity of the place is elevated by the chanting of the mantra ‘Nam Myoho Renge Kyo’ by monks.

    Measuring 94 feet in height and about 23 metres in diameter, the pagoda is the highest free standing structure in Darjeeling. From the top of this white pagoda, visitors can behold breathtaking views of Darjeeling’s lush landscape along with the distant Kanchenjunga Range.

The regular bus service from Siliguri (which is approximately 70 kilometres away) to Darjeeling is quite slow but economical. Similar bus services are also available from neighbouring towns like Kurseong and Kalimpong which is 31 and 50 kilometres away respectively. Even Gangtok city runs daily buses to Darjeeling; however, we suggest taking a shared cab instead.


By Train

The Darjeeling railway station is administered by the Darjeeling Himalayan Railways (DHR). The nearest railway station in Darjeeling is at New Jalpaiguri (62 kilometres from the main town) which connects major Indian cities like Kolkata, Delhi, Guwahati, Chennai, Mumbai, Bangalore, Bhubaneshwar and Cochin.
