A 10-day carnival in Darjeeling has brought a flood of tourists to this tea-producing Himalayan tourist resort in eastern India.

For the past week, Darjeeling has been swinging to the beat of some great music.

Jazz star Louise Banks, who hails from the town, performed to huge crowds at the carnival.

Rock bands with hill roots - the Groove Suppa of Bombay (Mumbai) and the Full Circle of Kathmandu - also drew full houses.

Thousands of tourists - from the West and from across India - enjoyed rides on the famous "Toy Train", which passes through the world's highest railway station.

Full Story.
