The Darjeeling Himalayan Railway chugged its way through the steep and winding path in 1880. Since then, it has been declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1991.
The steam engines for the fondly called Toy Train are an iconic part of Darjeeling’s history, making appearances in several movies, books and songs. This is one of the most sought-after restaurants in Darjeeling.
The multi-cuisine restaurant Whistling Steam at Summit Swiss Heritage Hotel & Spa is one that was originally established in 1941. The British colonial style architecture has been preserved over the decades and still has the same charm it had when it was opened.
