Darjeeling : A hidden treasure in the Eastern Part of India


The Eastern Part of India is still untouched and is a treasure house, home to many flora and faunas. One of the most beautiful and hidden treasures: the Singalila National Park in Darjeeling, West Bengal which was established in 1986. The ridge connects the grand Himalaya of Nepal to India. Walking through the high ridges will surely level up your adrenaline rush. Not only this, the glistering view of Kanchenjunga Massif is cherry on the cake adorned with blue skies. Every day is a postcard-perfect with pleasant surprises of sheer adventure and extreme wilderness. The travelers and trekkers will get to witness the Virgin peaks of Nepal and Bhutan. It is a heavenly place for photographers and nature enthusiasts. The British Government bought the forest of Singalila from the King of Sikkim. When it attained its independence in 1992, the forests were converted into National Park. The feeling is surreal when you can’t stop Gawking at the mighty Himalayas. If you like to know more about the different kinds of species of flowers and plants: April is the ideal month. Many Himalayan flowers bloom at this time. You will be walking through Rhododendron forests and Orchids of various kinds. The splendor never stops: 

Don't listen because someone has told you to go to a particular place, you need to go yourself and see the beauty around. People keep talking about beauty and it’s time to witness the beauty of these places of Darjeeling: 
 The Sandakphu Phalut Trek: 
The Sandakphu Phalut trek is great grandeur which gives a majestic view of the world’s tallest mountain that is Mt Makalu, Mt Kanchenjunga, Mt Lhotse, Mt Everest. The view from Phalut is as mesmerizing as the day before.  

The Dzongri trek:  
 A significant trail which offers 360-degree views of the Nepal and Sikkim Himalayas. The trail passes through Kanchenjunga National Park. You would be surprised to see the mountains sprawling across the whole North and expanding till Bhutan touching the horizons of West. What else do you need? When you will be trekking through mixed coniferous and Sun alpine forests and stand amidst the land covered by the Alpine scrub and Grass. During the month of April, the trail is blessed with various species of  Rhododendrons sparkling brightly all around the corners.  

Ghum Railway Station 
 The Highest Railway Station in India and also known as Darjeeling Himalayan Railway is a UNESCO world heritage. Situated at an altitude of 2,258, Ghum has the intersection of roads that will take you to different places. One of the most fascinating things of Ghum is that it will take you through  twist and turns of Darjeeling hills. One of them is Tiger hills which offer breathtaking views of the sunrise over the Himalayas.
