Darjeeling is located in the foothills of the Indian Himalaya.

Among its attractions are its cultural diversity (including many Tibetan refugees), beautiful views (including of massive Kanchenjunga), trekking opportunities, tea plantations, and as a chance to cool down after a stint in the plains.

Darjeeling is also known for its mountain railway, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. This is a narrow-gauge railway that passes through picturesque mountain scenery.. The line has a series of zig-zags and loops to gain height, and even runs straight up several village main streets.

Overall Atmosphere: Combination
Combination Atmosphere destinations combine elements of both cultural and natural destinations, where this combination is itself essential to the travel experience. Common examples are Archaeological Sites (where culture is usually experienced outdoors), Scenic Local Markets (where indigenous cultures interact outdoors), Hotsprings and Vineyard Areas (where nature provides the raw materials but humans create the surroundings), and Unique Cultural Landscapes (where humans and nature interact in innovative ways, as in the elaborate rice terracing systems of Asia).

Combination Interests typically fall somewhere in the middle of the three types of primary interests in terms of
(a) how climate-dependent they are
(b) how accessible and physically demanding they are.
Featuring both cultural and natural attractions.
