Brief History of Darjeeling
Located in the lower Himalayas at an average elevation of 6,982 ft (2,134 m), it is the headquarter of Darjeeling district, During the British Raj, Darjeeling's temperate climate led to its development as a hill station (hill town) for British residents to escape the heat of the plains during summer.

Darjeeling is internationally famous for its tea industry and the Darjeeling Himalayan Railway, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The tea plantations date back to the mid 19th century as part of a British development plan. The tea growers of the area developed distinctive hybrids of black tea and fermenting techniques, with many blends considered among the worlds finest. The Darjeeling Himalayan Railway connecting the town with the plains was declared a World Heritage Site in 1999 and is run by steam engines a few of which are still in service in India. Darjeeling has several British-style public schools, which attract students from many parts of India and neighboring countries. The town, along with neighboring Kalimpong was a major transit route for business with Nepal and China through old mountain passes and horse tracks.
