Darjeeling Diaries : the mighty and stupendous Kanchenjunga, as seen from Batasia Loop

Darjeeling Diaries : Days 3 & 4 – The Queen of the Hills, and the Mighty Kanchenjunga

Hello people! I’ll pick up right from where I left in my previous post. ๐Ÿ™‚ We reached Darjeeling by the end of Day 2, where we had drove off from Kalimpong.

In Darjeeling too, we had pre-booked our stay. I always prefer advance booking to avoid last minute hustles. Day 2 had us touring almost the whole of Kalimpong, and a long road journey to Darjeeling, so by the end of the day, our high spirits were pretty much subdued. I couldn’t imagine rushing about in that fatigue in search of a hotel. Thank God for online hotel booking websites.

In Darjeeling too, we had opted for a homestay. Little Singamari seemed like a perfect choice. Even though it was labeled a “homestay”, the service was pretty professional. The BnB facility had a very congenial atmosphere and extremely hospitable hosts. It was about 9pm by the time we reached our abode for the next two days. Fresh and steaming dinner was awaiting us at Little Singamari, prepared with utmost love and care by our hostess, Ramila. More on this later in the post.ย ๐Ÿ™‚ Read more
