In the middle of winter clouds hang low around Darjeeling. This creates an overall grey sorta feel to everything, and also inhibits the viewing of the Himalayan Mountains. It was kinda frustrating to look at the view and see nothing but a grey blanket covering everything. HOWEVER, if you got up at 4 am and went to the top of this one peak you could see the mountains for about 20 minutes (if you were lucky) Well; I did this - I only slept 2 hours the night before and was a bit groggy for the viewing, but hell; i saw the Himalayas - even if it was just a tiny little piece.
