Darjeeling Tourist Information Centers

 
There are several tourist or visitors information centers that exist in Darjeeling and other places in India, and provide information about Darjeeling as well as lodging assistance. There are ones that are run by GTA (Gorkhaland Territorial Administration, erstwhile DGHC), an administrative body of the Darjeeling hills. The others are run by the West Bengal Tourist Development Corporation (an organization of WB state tourism department) and some by Government of India.  
 
In general the centers that are run by GTA are able to provide more detailed information about Darjeeling district because they specialize only in Darjeeling district. They also organize tours and take bookings for GTA run accommodations including the lodges and trekkers huts in Darjeeling area. 
 
 
 
West Bengal state tourism operated centers provide information not only about Darjeeling area, but other places of the state as well. From these centers, you can also do bookings for the state run tourist lodges in Darjeeling area. You can collect tourism brochures of Darjeeling and other state areas from here. 
 
The tourist centers run by the Government of India can also provide information about Darjeeling, although at a broad level because their coverage is the whole of India. You can also get brochures on Darjeeling from these centers. However they do not offer any lodge booking assistance. 
 
Below you will find the information &álodge booking centers by location, their address, contact info and their offerings.
