Travelling with family is an old concept in India and many parts of the world. India is incredible and Indian Himalayas has a great contribution towards this incredibleness of India. There are many reasons to travel with family like to see the snow clapped mountains, enjoy the leisure with family, explore the new destinations and experience the rare things of the region including the adventure tourism, rural tourism, tea tourism and many more. Eastern Himalaya is one of the ideal places for those travellers who plan to visit with family.
There are many places in Eastern and North Eastern India where a traveller can find his reason to visit. If we talk about the Darjeeling Himalayas, it is one of the places related with the British colonial heritage of India and everywhere in Darjeeling town and in and around the region there are many historical elements which are found related with the history. The toy train (Darjeeling Himalayan Railway) was started in 1881 which is a UNESCO World Heritage and an experience of ‘Joy Ride’ on this train gives anyone a lifetime experience.
