Darjeeling also attracts many visitors from all over the world, and it has earned its reputation as a tourist center since the second half of the XIX century. Today, it is the only major city in the east of India where many foreign travelers come. Tourists admire the panoramas of snow-covered peaks, endless tea plantations on the hills.
