If you want to get away from the hustle n bustle of the town and get a deeper insight into how the local people live then why not opt for a day tour of a Darjeeling or Sikkim village. Here you will get to see life through the eyes of the local families going about their day-to-day activities. You will be treated to lots of local dishes and countless cups of chai(!) and there is also the option to take part in a short cooking lesson. You will also get to take in the clean air, tranquil surroundings and beautiful views.
