Mark Twain seems to have visited this Himalayan city and penned down his impression about Darjeeling as the 'land that all men desire to see, and having seen once, by even a glimpse, would not give that away for the shows of the rest of the world combined.' Such is the beautiful land of Darjeeling. Adjacent to and surrounded by small Asian countries as Burma, Bangladesh, Tibet, Nepal and Bhutan, this beautiful 'Queen of the Himalayan Region' is not only one of the biggest tea producers of India but is also abundantly enriched with natural beauty.
