It had been a while since silence had brooded over the hills but with the blossoming of marigold around we know it’s that time of the year when festivals are at the doorstep, and time to let go and have fun. What are your plans this Dussehra?
Dussehra aka Dasai makes the little town of Darjeeling & Sikkim burst with energy. The smell of marigold triumphs over all the senses as everyone decorates their homes with it. It is a delight to take a walk in the town during this festive season, do you agree?
On this special day of #Dussehra, every one wears new clothes and the elders of the family smear the family member’s forehead with colored rice as blessing. Dasain is also a time for family reunions and feasts all day long. Tika Date-14th Oct, 2013
The colorful riot of prayer flags, intriguing Thanka wall paintings, the most beautiful monasteries & the monk quarters would be one of the most striking features of Darjeeling/Sikkim. But seeing is just not enough; turn the leaves of the local fable and experience the mountain & monasteries with us like a local only at www.traveltodarjeeling.com/Mountain_Monasteries
