Darjeeling and Lower Himalayas

Walking and Sightseeing

November 2024

Welcome to Jo’s new adventure exploring Darjeeling, one of the most scenic hill resorts in India, and the breathtaking grandeur of the lower Himalayas. 

Your 14 days will include stays in charming Raj era colonial hotels, a trip on the UNESCO listed Darjeeling Himalaya Railway, a visit to a tea plantation, a week of panoramic walks up close to the majesty of the Himalayas, staying in (describe accommodation), sojourns in the historic towns of Kurseong and Darjeeling exploring their alleyways and bazaars, the Himalayan zoological park and the world reknowned Himalayan Mountaineering Institute.

Jo’s grandfather was an Engineer and General Manager on the Darjeeling Himalaya Railway that winds from the plains of India up into the tea region of Darjeeling.  We’ll meet many people along the way, whose lives have been shaped by this railway.  We’ll step back into a bygone era with its colonial charm, while also having meaningful contact with its current denizons, most of them Nepali.  We’ll trek through verdant terraces, beautiful forest and traditional villages.
