Queen of the Hills

The train, the tea, and the hills bring visitors to Darjeeling, one of India's most famous and well-preserved Raj-era hill stations.
Darjeeling is known for historic sites, zoos & aquariums, and museums. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: take some stellar pictures from Tiger Hill, explore the world behind art at Himalayan Tibet Museum, make a trip to Batasia Loop, and get the adrenaline pumping with an extreme tour.

Kathmandu, Nepal

Once synonymous with the mysterious and inaccessible Shangri-La, today Kathmandu draws an ever-increasing number of tourists, catering to independent travelers of various budgets.
Make the 11th (Tue) an unforgettable day with an extreme tour. Make the 9th (Sun) a memorable day with a climbing tour. There's still lots to do: take in the local highlights with Walking tours, indulge in some personalized pampering at some of the best spas, surround yourself with nature on a nature and wildlife tour, and contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Boudhanath Stupa.

Plan my Kathmandu trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.
