Whatever may be your budget, it can be a great idea to combine your Darjeeling visit with one of such offbeat places to soak in nature and be in a state of tranquil bliss before returning to your routine life. It works as a great energizer for me. offbeat places that I have discovered over the years are only short distances away from Darjeeling town center. offbeat places can be easily reached by car in 1 or 2 hours drive through scenic routes. You can also directly reach these places from Bagdogra airport or NJP railway station. Most of them
