DARJEELING: Standing high in the Himalayas at an altitude of 2134m, âDorje Lingâ, or place of the Thunderbolt, offers breathtaking views of snow-capped mountain peaks, with the Kanchendzonga rising higher than all the others. Often referred to as the âQueen of the Hillsâ, it remains just as alluring with its tiny waterfalls, little villages and a narrow gauge railway track.
