Why India is Ideal for a Romantic Getaway

1. Darjeeling, Bengal


Welcome to Darjeeling. Here the air is pure, the clouds wind between the peaks and the deep red robes of the monks remind you that Tibet is not far. Darjeeling is located in the border with Nepal, which in your guide Lonely Planet guide appears as West Bengal. The normal thing is that tourists (travelers, nomads or whatever you want to define) arrive in Darjeeling from Calcutta, Varanasi or Nepal.

Chowrasta area is the upper part of the city since Darjeeling is on a hillside. This is where are all the movies are shot, backpackers, shops, cafes in the British colonial style and everything you need. Mahakal Temple is on a hill top is one of the greatest spots in Darjeeling to observe the panoramic views of the mountains.

The Observatory Hill is located at the Mall area and is encircled at its bottom by the Mall Road. As you walk along the Mall road, you will see this steep hill rising on one side. And Mahakal market is just beside.

However, it's not too high. It takes about 15 minutes of uphill walk to reach to the top. While the walk may be tiring, the rewards are awesome. As you take the Mall road from the right side of Chowrasta Mall, about 100 yards away you will find flights of stairs that lead towards the Observatory Hill and the Mahakal Temple.
