A dazzling Darjeeling

‘Welcome to Darjeeling – Queen of the Hills’! – A huge billboard reads as we enter the town sprawling the eastern Himalayan ridge. It offers just as stunning mountainscapes as elsewhere in the region: enveloping its tea plantations in mystic clouds and fogs during monsoon and winter, and glittering in the backdrop of the silver-shining Kanchanjungha, Makalu and other peaks in the fall.


A night market

Minus the advertisement blitzkriegs of a myriad of Indian tea, oil, mobile and other brands, Darjeeling looks like any other mid-hill-town in Nepal. The main reason for that is its Nepaliness: the accented Nepali lingo, music, culture and literature; and the Tibeto-Burmese-Nepali looks of the rainbow of Nepali ethnic diversity. At the pub by the Chau-Rasta, a Nepali live band belts out ‘Musu musu hashi deu na’, ‘Chhekyo Chhekyo Darjeeling danda’ on weekend evenings.

A weekend visitor doesn’t get to see that kind of downside. Lounge at the pleasant terrace called Chaurasta; read Subash, the pen name of littérateur-cum-politician Subash Ghising, or Indra Bahadur Rai; or just listen to Shanti Thatal, Ambar Gurung or Aruna Lama or Daisi Baraili. All of them hail from the surrounding hills. Here, as overweight Kolkata tourists ride mules and go for a ‘chakkar’, the statue of Nepali-language and ‘Nepali Jatiya’ poet Bhanu Bhatka stands tall.


Shawl market in Darjeeling

 

At 21,00 meters, Darjeeling smiles at the visitors even on a gloomy monsoon day. During British Raj in India, it was the best hill station for British officers. Famous as much for its natural beauty as it is for its tea, Darjeeling is simply dazzling. Rainfall drenches this town during the 100 days of monsoon. Yet there’s acute shortage of water in the hills. “There’re a lot of migrants here these days so a lot pressure on nature,” says Sanjay Pradhan, a restaurateur.


A trolley ride on a railway in Siliguri

“Hanna kata hindeko yo keto, chhito aijo la,” a local bloke sporting hip-off jeans, gelled and spiked hair and funky sunglasses is overheard yelling at his friend at the nearby road-side teashop. Take a walk along the snaking trial leading to the hilltop. Past the pine trees with fluttering Om-Mani-Peme-Hum Lungtas, and the Shiva Lingam, playful monkeys quarrel for a share of food or fruit most of the time.


Mahakaal Baba temple of Darjeeling

At a distance, as the cool breezes soothe your soul, another beautiful sight greets you: a maroon-robed monk comes out of the temple full of Hindu priests and pilgrims. Just about everything here is in near-perfect harmony. On a clear day, you can also see Tenzing Norgay’s second home from this summit. And Kalimpong and Tiger Hill to the east and Antu Danda, Ilam, to the west. Not Kanchanjungha, though. It’s monsoon time!

    Hi! Feel so good to see the pics of darjeeling. Thank you Surendra you make me look back on the year 2000 when i visited it. All the things i recalled, the darjeeling visit. All of the snaps are good. I like darjeeling because of it’s natural beauty and the most i didn’t feel a single moment that i was in india. Everyone speaks nepali there even those who looks like indian they too. I think every nepali should go there once in a life time so that we can know what a beautiful place that we sacrificed a long before.

    Dear Readers and popular Falano, Namaste. Falano is not only perfect in photography but also a good traveller is not it. Now it is hot in kathmandu and he went to relax at Darjeeling. Very funny falano.
    well. it is very famous place mainly by its tasteful tea production site, its topography and of course big society of Nepalese people with tallent and hospality. But now, it is being vannish due to unplanned city extension and population blast. So the Darjeeling oy yesterday just remain in memory.
    Kathmandu is also suffering from same symptom so let us maintain our city neat and clean. Let us promise be Nepali, speak Nepali, follow Nepali culture and live with pride. In Japan what we see here, there is one language, one Nation, one aim that is prosperous Japan. So in Nepal we may have different tribes, cast, religion and culture but we all are Nepali. Say openly what is common for all Nepali that is respected and proud at all the times: There most be some common points to bind and bring all Nepali together. Light have 7 colors but jointly it represent white in color. Like wise we Nepali most promise to have some ever green proud is not it? Well, Dear, Falano thank you so much for inviting us to a cultural city DARJEELING.

    Many thanks to Phalano.com, well I was browsing over the net and as usual got to see the pics of my hometown Darjeeling, inspite of the heights of summer heat the pics made me think of my hometown and feel the cool sacred moist air of the moonsoon of Darj, moreover I was delighted to see some of my cousins sitting on the bench of Chowrastha, the first pic where I can see my home’s locality made me feel nostalgic.
    Well once again thanks for the pics as it made my day and I forgot for some time that I was in a desert with the summer in it’s height.

    Darjeeling is a Nepal out of Nepal. Migrated Nepalese of Darjeeling are still in close contact with their origin, we are all proud of them. I had an opportunity to visit this place once upon a time and liked very much. There are several places worth to see including tea state.
    Thank you very much for the nice pictures.

    I wanna see beat bigger pictures. When you squeeze them they lose their artistic value. I understand that you might have problem with storage and stuff like that. But I wanna see your art inside these photos. Please do not put yourself behind the curtain.

    Beside that, everything else is phenomenol. Keep it up!

    Thank you very much for giving us such an opportunety to watch the beutiful scene of Darjeeling. While watching this – I really feel that I am wondering around this beutiful paradise. If we happen to turn back the pages of history, I believe we Nepalese would drop few drops of tear…….just to satisfy ourself and do some sort of ‘bilap’…..” Kina timi.. hamilai chhorhera tarha bhayau ni”………!!
    Thanks a lot Surendra ji.

    It is been a great pleasure to have such a beautiful pictures and it would be nice if you put more. Somehow I feel how our blady rana rulers gave away such a beautiful places to india otherwise it would be within nepal and there are still 99% are nepalese it makes me feel cry obviously but our people try to put in nepal map but Nepali corrupted government did not support them. However, I like to thanks to phalano.com and I expect more pictures in future of Darjeeling, Sikkim, Kalengpong, gantok and kathmandu.

    Lots of thanks to Suren bro. and Phalano. Com for posting beautiful photos of Darjeeling. Everyday I visit this web site as it provides not only beautiful pictures but also lots of information about the places, people and events.
    Today I was so happy to see the photos of my home town “Queen of hills Darjeeling”. As photography is my hobby I feel that your whole life is not enough to take pictures of Darjeeling. The landscapes, greenery, sloppy bed of green tea gardens, Darjeeling in long rainy season, Darjeeling in short spring etc…everyday you can see it’s beauty in different angles and one can never forget the early morning glimpse of Mt. Kanchanzunga changing its colour as the rays of rising sun reflects on it. One has to visit Darjeeling in the month of March / April or later between October and December to catch this amazing moment in your camera.
    Once again Thanks to Suren bro. and PHALANO.COM and keep up the good work.

    I think these pictures are great, but giving contradicting message. We call Darjeeling as ours…but do the people living there consider themselves as Nepalese? Are we just talking about Ethinicity? What is the real meaning of being a Nepalese? Just the faces and the culture, or may be the language? We believe, a true Nepalese is that person who loves Nepal in true sense. It should be regardsless of Ethnicity, language, or culture.

    This message is for “Lila Rai”. she asked for information ’bout darjeeling.

    Hey i dunno about the population n stuff but as you asked for the routes to get there. You can go through 2 routes- one via Pasupatinagar,Illam and other via Kakarvitta, Jhapa. I would suggest the one via Pashupatinagar. once you get off the bus at pashupatinagar, you will find maruti vans waiting for passengers to Darjeeling. just hop into one and there you are.
    The places to visit are, Tiger hill,Chowrasta,north point, zoo, museum,rock garden- gangamaya park, buddhist monastry, happy valley tea estate etc. you can always reserve a cab for sight seeing. they refer to the sight seeing as 3 points, 7 points and 11 points. chhose the one best for you.
    Mirik is famous just for the lake(Jheel). just go foe boating and dont forget a cup of coffee in the swiss cottage in the hill just above the lake. If you need further info mail me at sanush(at)comcast.net.
    Falano did a good job.

    Hi Surendra,

    What a lovely place.. they say queens of Hills..I say one of the most beautiful place on EARTH!!! Growing up in Darjeeling, I never felt I was living in such a dreamland.

    Beautiful tea gardens, crown like Kanchenjunga, lovely bazar, beauful people of Darjeeling, Chowrasta, Mahankal Than are uncommon place to forget..

    I wishi PHALANO will publish more photos of KANCHENGUNJA and the Tea Gardens..

Is this what you call journilism? It’s a different thing if I had used foul languages or something.I believe, we all should be allowed to put our comments regarding these pictures.

    When I saw these pictures my eyes filled with hot and precious tears,I recalled my childhood memory of history class, we lost these lands during war but British govt wanted to back before living India but our govt. didn’t took back.They did the unforgivable mistake ,it hurt to us now every second. My eyes looking Tista and Kangada in the Map. Anyway, Darjeeling is not only beautyful but wonderful and proud motherland for Nepal because she gave “Sajiv, Saput “children like Aruna Lama,Amber Gurung, Gopal yonjan,Tulasi Ghimire kumar , Lain singh Bangdel, Surya,karm yonjan Shanti Thatal, and so many….they have Nepalipan…And I want to request to all to keep Immoral Nepali culture.
    Thanks for these all views.

    No doubt they are beautiful;especially for the people like us who are away from Nepal.They are not only for the eyes also reminds you a lot.
    Honestly I havn’t been there but I have many friends from Darjeeling who are really trustworthy, accommodating and can count on.
    Let’s say place and people both nature’s gift.

    Love to see the beutiness of Indian Hill Station( Darjiling )
    The pictures are saying me to visit the place once a time in your life But due to the some rumors about bad hospitality, I already canceled for the trip of beautiful hillstation.
    We have a lot of such hillstations in our contry but they are all in the shadow by the publicity and from their cultural heritage. If it comes to the attention of visitors, they will obviously be more beautiful than the Indian Hillstation. I wish & looking forward to see Nepal’s beauty by endeavoring cultural heritage.

    Darjeeling, a great city of Nepali culture, people and panoromic view of eastern Himalayas. However, it was very much degraded in 1990 compared to while I visited for the first time in 1976. Staying at Sailabas was great in 1976 but was really disappointing in 1990. Hopefully, Darjeeling has restored her beauty.

    As by seeing the photographs of sweet Darjeeling where there is the majority of Nepalese people I enjoyed very much. Darjeeling totally looks like the midd-hill-town of Nepal ‘coz it used to be Nepal before. I had never been to Darjeeling but when I return back to Nepal I will certainly visit this place ‘coz I can’t stop myshelf after seeing this photos.

    I appreciate the pictures posted regularly on your website, but I had to comment on these ones. Besides for a few pictures you have posted, most don’t represent Darjeeling in its full. The pictures do have a good quality but the photographer has completely missed out the main attractions and what Darjeeling represents in front of the world. Pictures should be able to tell the tale of the city and not teh people who are buying clothes etc. Sorry.Where are the pictures of the famouse toy train, tea gardens, the famous schools that the British built, chaurasta, view of kanchanjunga, etc. Please better pictures next time.

These are not my words. I had a better advice for the photographer which you have altered here. And for your knowledge I have lived in darjeeling for 10 years. I cannot accept that your photogrpher accepts only comments that are sweet to his ears. Dont be like the previous government.

    Nice pictures.Far better than any narrative.Although there are rooms for adding some more such pictures depicting the real life of Darjeeling.The famous author Peter J. Karthak has done real justice to Darjeeling in his bestseller novel ,”Every Person,Every Place.”Thank you Surendra ji.Your photo journalism is equally impressive.

    Was there during monsoon, maybe during 99′, its such a beautiful place like a grand terrace where the fog comes rolling in the chau rasta, engulfing everyone in it and the next moment, it clears out like as if it was never there…..did have a similar experience here in NC, US and they call it Smoky Mountains over here !

    Saile Maile Darjeeling Kosto cha .
    Darjeeling sahar batti ko lahar, swarga dham jausto cha.
    These were the lines the old people used to sing ,seeing and feeling the beauty of Darjeeling.
    The people of Darjeeling loved and still loves Nepal and her people because Darjeeling was part of Nepal, but the rana’s and other previous rulers gifted it to British India, to fulfill their selfish interest.
    Any way its still small Nepal there.
    Thank for the great photos hope more in future.

    But the politicians and the Multinational Companies are busy whatever Nature is left in my State by exploiting the rich mineral reserve out here.

    The rich culture and tradition of the region will soon dissappear as innocent Tribals are being killed daily in the name of naxlites.

    Well, Darjeeling reminds me of ” Aljhecha kyare pachyauri timro chiya ko butta ma, Baljhecha kyare sunako kanda kalilo khutta ma…..”
    reminds me of “Panchi sabai udhe pachi guda rittai huncha, yo mato lai chaadi gaye Deurali yahaan runcha…”
    reminds me of “Nepali… gaurav garchau aphnai pan ma pachaute ta hainau hai…”, reminds me of ” Ma ambar hun timi dharti lakhon chahe pani hamro milan kahile na hola….” and finally it reminds me of “Darjeeling ko sano rail hidna lai aba tyari cha, guard le suna bhai siti bajayo hidna lagyo hamro rail…. ku..ku…ku…

    I have heard a lot about Darjeeling and Kharsang eversince my childhood. Always wanted to be there. It is sad to read the histroy of Darjeeling. How we lost her…Even though she is physically a part from our motherland we all have deep root and compassion for our fellow Nepali brothers and sisters in Darjeleeing, Kalingpon and Kharsang areas.

    It is my prayer that the Lord help us all Nepali united one day from Tista to Kangada, from Kharsang to Darjeeling, from Kaling pong to Singo Nepal…

    We are growing, I am sure that day is getting closer…

    Brothers and sisters from Darjeeling, Kalingpong and Kharsang we carry the same Nepali spirit as you do…Thanks for all you do…Thanks for giving us Gopal Yonjan….

    “Desa le ragata mage malae bali chadau…rudinan meri ama hun Nepali ki Chhori….’

    Our thoughts and prayers for you always!

    God bless you all!

    To the one who posted these living portraits…Wonderful job!…Please keep up your Good works…..

    With prayers love in Christ for all Nepalese,

She told me more about the beutiness of the Darjeeling. She showed me some snaps of Darjeeling but not like this one, this snaps are really very very good, mind blowing so I now determined to visit once the land of paradise. Thank you very much for who took this picture. beautiful….

    Darjeeling hasalways been an inspiration for the lovers of nature and it’s beauty.The pictures taken by Mr. Phuyalare really breath taking and full of life.Coincidently ,my parents have descended from this place.I often pay visit to this place.Unfortunately, in recent times the city has grown over crowed and unplanned constructions of roads and buildings are together creating nuisance to the visitors and tourists coming from a long way to enjoy the beauty of this place.Nevertheless , I am still spellbind by the ever charming looks of the people of Darjeeling.Hospitality shown by these people is just awesome!

    Thank you very very much Mr phuyalji for your good work.
    It has been my dream to be in Darjeeling since my childhood. One day i will be there and sit under the very same statue of great Bhanubhakta.
    I admired and thank her not only for her beauty but all the things she has given to us (Nepal). From every aspect, she is so welcoming and
    so connected that we can call out loud “We love Darjeeling, she is ours”. Wish her to be like that forever.

    Others are fine with Darj

    How nice it is to see photos of Darjeeling again. You have indeed done a good job. Unfortunately the Queen of the Hills have become the Slave of the Goons now. I hope on your next edition about the hill station you will dwell on the political scenario and go indepth on how Darjeeling has been turned into a social disaster today. It is a must for the rebellious people of Nepal to get an idea about their neighbour that doesn’t seem to have the courage to speak up, stand up and rebel against the oppressive regime of Ghising.

    I have not completed my wills till now to see and visit Darjeeling. I don’t know how is life in Darjleeng but I know little bit how the peoples are there. Around the end of 1996 somebody became nearest one in my life from Darjeeling. I got to see the photographs of this beautiful place. I have read and seen many and more articles about Darjeeling. Not only the most of Artists, many genuen peaples are attracted to go there including me. I also will go to see Darjeeling and to visit to my beloved/lost one. May be that reunion will make to her feeling a rearcarnation of Dip.
    I want to offer thanks to PhalanoDotCom for posting beautiful Darjeeling. This soul asks more…

    Darjeeling is dazzling and there are a thousand Darjeelings within Nepal waiting for infrastructures of development .When I went Darjeeling it was much similar to My village Lammela in Baglung and its adjacent areas.The fresh memory of Darjeeling shall remain in my mind forever untill I pass away.

    Hey Editor:

    I like your pictures. But I must correct your mistake. That temple is a Buddhist temple, not a Hindu at all. At least , you can be frank to admit it is a Buddhist temple. There is nothing wrong is saying it is Buddhist. I don’t like that typical Nepali Hindu dominated mentality where they take all Buddhist temples and shrines for granted as a Hindu icons.

    Pls correct that.

I think that it is a bit sad because we offer so much more as you have shown here. Thanx.

    Nice to see scenic beauty of Darjeeling, our paharki rani but its becoming more crowded, dirty and no such organisation or individual is taking initiative to keep up that heritage with reshaping, refining and rennovating it. If anybody is interested about our people, place and paramount Darjeeling, so please contact to me with your suggestions. Thanks – Puran

    I visited Darjeeling a few years ago. The culture is distinctly Nepalese. But the history books say that Darjeeling was part of the kingdom of Sikkim and Nepalese people were encouraged by the British to migrate to Darjeeling and surrounding areas as labour in Tea Estates, railroad and road construction as plains people of the British raj used to hot weather could not adjust to the cold and damp weather conditions.

    A job done neat & excellent Surendar. Darjeeling Snaps are marvellous and enticing and in fact a feast to the eyes. It would be great if you could add some current statistics of Darj with a Map and hot destinations for tourist. . . Am sure, it will add a lot ov value to your information. I still am in touch with my close friends from Darj (though they are settled abroad) and this is one place I love to comeback and enjoy nature closely. Those fog covered roads and mountains, mall road, restaurant serving hot momos and endless chatting with friends is a priceless forever cherished memories. Thank You Kesang Bhutia, Gajendra Mani Pradhan, Sanju, Munna, Radha Gurung, Munni & Hemanth Pradhan for taking me to Heaven and experience nothing but the best in life.

    It reminded me of my growing up moments during the 60s where I attended Government High School, Government college, and walked up and down from Chowrasta to Chok Bazar most everyday. I have ben living in the USA for over 30 years now but still go to my Gau where I grew up (located near the Victoria Falls) once in every 2 or 3 years. During my last two visits in 2003 and 2005, I noticed that my old high school along with some major infrastructrures were falling apart piece by piece, roads were unrepaired with huge potholes, and mushrooming of houses everywhere you turn. However, Darjeeling still attracts me and I will continue to visit as often as I possibly can.

    Thanks to Phalano for posting some beautiful pictures of our beautiful Darjeeling. But there are other equally beautiful towns here like Kurseong from where can see the best sunsets, Kalimpong with orchid and other flower nurseries, Mirik with the lake which are a part of our beautiful hills. All are welcome to visit our beautiful hills and enjoy the sights and sounds as well as the hospitality. Come as a stranger and go as a friend.
