If you are an art buff, you cannot miss going to these places in Darjeeling. Let's discuss them in details:

  • Ava Art Gallery

    A flamboyant yellow and purple colored two storey building, on the Hill Cart Road, catches your attention as you drive down the highway towards Darjeeling. Thats Ava Art Gallery. Ava Art Gallery was jointly established by Late Ava Devi, who was known as a genius of embroidery art, and the Bhopal Rao Sett.
    The art gallery consists of a permanent collection of 60 pieces of exquisite artwork of Ava Devi including water, oil and thread paintings.

    Timings: The gallery is open from 8am to 12pm and again from 1pm to 5pm.
    (Photography is not permitted inside.)
    Charges: Free

  • Everest Museum

    At the Lebong Cart Road on Jawahar Parbat, just 2 kilometres northeast of the Darjeeling Chowrasta, The Everest Museum settles paying tribute to the history of attempts made to scale and summit the mighty Mount Everest.
    The Museum showcases intriguing mementos and photos of all those who have been audacious enough to climb of the
    Mount Everest. There is an interesting display of the several mountaineers of India and their mountaineering gear such as the climbing tools and equipment, technical clothing, head gear, and camping gear and so on.
    If you are curious enough to have always wondered about the mountaineering gear that is required to be worn by the mountaineers at such high altitudes. This is the closest you will get to the Mountaineering Equipment used by great mountaineers who dared to have conquered the Everest, the highest peak of the world.

These are some of the places in Darjeeling that let you feel the true vibes of the place and hence, they must be visited.
