It is the headquarters of Darjeeling district, in the Shivalik hills in the lower chain of the Himalayas, at an average altitude of 2134 meters. The name "Darjeeling" is a combination of the Tibetan words Dorje (lightning) and ling (place), translated as "Land of Lightning". During the British colonial administration of India (British Raj), Darjeeling's temperate climate led to its development as a resort for the British fled the heat of the plains during the summers. Darjeeling is internationally famous for its tea industry and Darjeeling Himalayan Railroad, World Heritage of Unesco.
