Darjeeling Enveloped in the Morning Mist

Morning Mist in Darjeeling

This was the late morning view from our hotel balcony when we had visited Darjeeling, a famous hill station in north-eastern part of India, in the spring of 2013. It was a picturesque sight with the slopes still enveloped in mist and just the form visible from far away distance.

Darjeeling, in the state of West Bengal, presents a majestic sight of Himalayas due to its proximity to the borders of Sikkim – Indian state, Nepal and Bhutan. Kanchenjunga peak, world’s third highest mountain and part of Himalayan mountain range, can be viewed from Darjeeling on a clear day. Kanchenjunga mountain, located on the border of Nepal and India, is called Five Treasures of Snow after its famous five high peaks and is worshiped by the people of Darjeeling and Sikkim. However during all three days of our stay, we could not view it due to cloudy skies and fog. This calls for another trip to this beautiful hill station in future.

    • Thanks a lot Rituparna for your nice words. Even I would love to visit this place again because I spent just few days in this place. So the urge is to come and relax for more days in such a beautiful place 🙂
