Trip to Darjeeling & Gangtok

Way to Rock Garden is very stiff mountain road. But amazing view of tea gardens & Himalayan mountain range. Well maintained but need to visit when not raining or after raining.

If you have nothing to do in Darjeeling , you might think of visiting the place. The place might be more attractive during monsoon. I found the place to be quite dirty and not to my loking. There is no decent place to eat . Food is available in the roadside which does not look clean and healthy.

There is nothing great about the place at all. Basically people have cashed on a natural feature. There is absolutely no infrastructure to speak of. Local taxi drivers fleece unsuspecting tourists pitching in for this place which has got absolutely nothing. Lot of crowd, and the water in the lower levels is very unclean with lot of garbage thrown in.... More

The rock garden is a good family destination in a place away from Darjeeling. This is a good family trip but not very convenient on a rainy day which we experienced. There are lot of sitting options for elderly people.

The ride to the Rock Garden is interesting as the road leaves the main center of Darjeeling, passes through tea fields, and twists down hairpin turns. The Rock Garden features waterfalls that cascade down a steep canyon and tumble carelessly over boulders. The flowers were in full bloom, and added to the intensity of our pictures.

This Rock Garden used to be much better a decade back. But now it is more of a concrete element with quite a few eateries scattered here and there amidst the garden. Nontheless one can always have a delicious plate of piping hot maggii surrounded by greenary around and flowing water below.

LOCATION: About 10km from Darjeeling town. Approached through good roads. Like all outskirts places, this too has only "Momo and Maggie" joints and no good restaurants around. PARK: Its laid on hilly terrain. Landscape is designed quite well using steep Contours and water stream very well creating the kaleidoscope of water bodies, vegetation and rocks. Yet walk around is not... More

At a distance of 17 km from Darjeeling town nestled among hills this is a garden which looks surreal. There are plenty of trees with white and peach colored flowers adorning the place. Rivulets flowing over undulated land and boulders and culverts created for uninterrupted flow. Small bridges that runs over these rivulets will carry you from one side to... More
