Sunrise Tour to Tiger Hill – situated at an altitude of 2590 meters (8482 ft.) and 13 kms from the town, this spot has earned international fame for the magnificent view of the sunrise over "Kanchendzonga" and the great Eastern Himalayan Mountains

We visited this place early morning to witness the locals praying and singing and playing some sort of instrument. Added to to this was the chirping of various birds in the background. Melodiously beautiful and peaceful. This place also has a very good view.

Quite interesting to see a museum of this sort. Shows different tools and equipment’s used in mountaineering along with its evolution. If you have time, spend a couple of hours to get intrigued by the collection. You can also find most mountain animals taxidermy and skin and also variety of insects and reptiles.. This is part of the Himalayan zoo itself.

A beautiful temple on a hill top, the place is fantastic and definitely worth a visit..The colourful Buddhist prayer flags fluttering in the temple premise adds to the beauty of this place. Here you would find a coexistence of Hindu and Buddhist religion together.Very close to the mall, offers nice views of the Mountains and Valleys

Simply awesome. Collection of climbers from 1900 to 2012 is just fantastic. Statue of Tansinh & their collection of cloths & other things kept in museum premises. Model of himalayan mountain range is very nice & well informative. Excitement of Everest is always stunning !!!!

The Happy Valley Tea Estate caresses the misty hills of Darjeeling, overlooking the fertile Himalayan foothills. Established in 1854, its history is closely entwined with the origins and cultivation of Darjeeling tea. This garden, located in the town of Darjeeling, is home to spectacularly lush fields, endowed with a natural, breath taking charm. At Happy Valley respect for nature is expressed through the organic and bio-dynamic method of farming. Happy Valley invites you to immerse yourself in the culture, history and tradition of the region by witnessing the process by which fresh tea leaves are withered, rolled, fermented, dried, sorted and graded to produce a variety of teas; the traditional black tea, green tea and the exquisite speciality teas. A guided tour of the Happy Valley tea factory offers visitors a glimpse of the fascinating process of manufacturing tea. The tea tasting session, curated for first-timers, is conducted at the end of the tour, where one can discover the legendary flavour of Happy Valley organic Darjeeling teas. Happy Valley teas are available in retail packs at the factory boutique for sale.
We spent 1-2 hours touring the factory and grounds and trying the tea.
To summarise: I won't ever be buying any tea from Harrod's. Happy Valley supplies them but their factory is dirty and plants covered in smog.
After going to Munnar, it has to be said that the tea plantations in Darjeeling are a disappointment.

Clean and no smell of wild animals. It's take only one hour to walk around. No zoo activities. Do not find white panda.

This is the one of the best place in Darjeeling for nature lovers, it is in the valley and the view of the falls are best for photography.
