Darjeeling Sikkim Tour - 7 Days .
Darjeeling town is strung out over a ridge, just a valley away from Sikkim. It still attracts traditional tourist for its well touted tea gardens and the old British Raj residual charms. Until beginning of the 18th century the area was under Sikkimese Raja. Then after the invasion of Gurkhas from Nepal, the British East India Company intervened and acquired concession of the area from the Raja of Sikkim to set up a sanitarium for its troops due to its favorable weather conditions. Development was rapid with Tea Garden and trade with Tibet and India. Today, almost 50 years after the British regime, Darjeeling still flourishes with tea gardens and seasonal tourist and retains to this day the old charm and flavor of that "never ending Victorian era.
