Walking down the Historic Darjeeling Lane: Snippets of Colonial Darjeeling

Darjeeling, the Queen of Hills, has a complex history. The sleepy town that we see today has a history woven collectively by the Gorkhas, Bhutias, Lepchas, Bengalis and British colonisers amongst others. We stopped by Darjeeling to capture snippets of what it feels like to walk down dark alleys, steep staircases and busy market places. Here is a glimpse of what we have to show.
