A light woolen garment during the summer season and heavy woolen garments during the winter season accompanied by a scarf or muffler and a woolen cap to cover the ears are ideal clothing for Darjeeling and recommended by us. Umbrellas and raincoats are useful during the summer and monsoon season. Sports shoes could be a comfort during walks and treks as some of the roads are steep. Sun glasses and other holiday accessories could add flavor. However keep your baggage light and trendy for comfortable transfers.
