A group of local women gather outside the Darjeeling Himalayan Railway station to relax. This is a small town located in the state of West Bengal, at an elevation of about 6,710 ft (2,045.2 m). When we visited in mid-April, the temperatures were fairly cool. Riding this steam locomotive up to Darjeeling was a very unique and memorable experience due to the small size of the train and the picturesque views of the Himalayas.
