About this activity

Shrubbery Nightingale Park is a beautiful public park located in the Richmond Hill area of Darjeeling, West Bengal, India. It is one of the most popular tourist attractions in Darjeeling and is known for its stunning views of the Kanchenjunga mountain range. The park has a rich history dating back to the British colonial era. It was originally the private courtyard of Sir Thomas Tartan’s Bungalow, a wealthy British businessman who lived in Darjeeling in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Sir Tartan was a keen gardener and filled his courtyard with a variety of flowers, shrubs, and trees.

In 1934, a devastating earthquake struck Darjeeling, destroying many buildings, including Sir Tartan’s Bungalow. The courtyard, however, was largely spared. After the earthquake, the courtyard was converted into a public park and named Shrubbery Nightingale Park. The park is home to a variety of trees and flowers, including rhododendrons, pines, and firs. It is also home to several birds, including nightingales, robins, and finches. The park is a popular spot for locals and tourists alike to relax and enjoy the natural beauty of Darjeeling.
