This is a must-do in Darjeeling. The cable car moves above tea gardens giving a very beautiful view of the scenery. We visited in May month so it was a bit cloudy which added more beauty to the scenery. Just take care of one thing....More

There is a narrow road to go up by car and join the queue. No need to climb the stairs. Elderly can easily go up by car till the ticket counter. But there will be a long queue.
