Good and Warm hotel
We are planning to be in Darjeeling for Mid-December and we are looking for decent and warm hotels - About Rs.2000 a night or so.
We have looked at quite few in this range, but not sure if its warm enough and if they actually let us have a log fire.
Warmth is a big criteria and cannot afford the Windamere or Mayfair unfortunately...
Re: Good and Warm hotel
Sorry, I can't give a recommendation, as it's too long ago, when
we visited. You should be able to get a good discount at that time
of the year, so with bargaining you might be able to afford one of
the more expensive hotels. But all hotels in the 2000 Rs price range
will provide adequate heating...
Travel Tips for Darjeeling
nepali dance-Tamang selo
Tamangs are a Nepali community and the "Tamang Selo" dance is performed to the rhythmic sound of the "Damphoo" musical instrument which the dancers carry in their hands. This dance is therefore also called the "Damphoo Dance". It is always full of fun and vigor and the brisk movement and rhythmic beat of the Dampoo depicts a style peculiar to the Tamangs. It is performed on occasions like marriage ceremony, childbirth and village fairs.
Tamang Selo is a very sweet and enchanting variety of folk songs. Originally sung by Tamang but favoured by all.As the name suggests this folk song Tamang Selo was originated by Tamang who inhabit the hills . The beat and rhythm is slow but the melody is enchanting. Specially used for expression of love, passion and sorrow, Tamang Selo is also sung as question & answer between two competing groups of singers.
This variety is known to Nepali music from the earliest times and hence its date of origin cannot be definitely answered.
When Nepali folk songs are sung in gathering of singers, Tamang Selo is sung to conclude the ceremony.
Darjeeling, walk to the north point.
Rounding the north point - visits and stops included- takes a short day.
To path to the north point is easygoing along the slope. The green big ferns are amazing.
At the north point is a rope way, but it looks not very safe to us.
We visit the Snowleopard Breeding Centre (a adult and two kids), the Mountaineering Institute with two musea (a lot of pictures and history of attempts to reach the top of the Mount Everest) and the Zoo (we don't like the rather small cages).
Sandakphu and Phalut
