Visiting Darjeeling in December

Will be visiting with family with a small kid. We primarily want to enjoy the beauty of Mt. Kanchendzonga and any other places worth a must visit. Not really looking to cover all good places, just the best ones. We are thinking of 4-5 days for Darjeeling and any one more place which we are not so sure of. Looking for opinion as what would be the other best place to be and what can be a best itinerary? Shall we pre-book any car for the trip?

You can include Kurseong in your ity. Pray for clear sky to enjoy the beauty of Mt. Kancehendzonga.

It will be good to pre book your car so that when you land there is someone waiting for you and take you to your destination.

You can consider 1 night in Dawaipani which is very near to Darjeeling. Half hour drive ,the places is away from all hustle bustle.
