Visit Kalimpong - Best of Kalimpong

Spread across the mountain shaped saddle ridge, this splendid town is overlooking the flowing Teesta River, crowned by the Khangchendzonga range. This quaint town is humble in its offerings and views; in terms of charismatic Buddhist Monasteries, Himalayan views, colonial architecture and awe inspiring nurseries. There’s a unique cactus nursery here too. The town remains an important educational centre for the whole of Eastern Himalayas, which were essentially established in the colonial era. This place shows us the vividity and diversity of nature. The mesmerizing fact that beauty can spring anywhere and in all shapes and sizes. The fact that thorns do not alter or diminish the beauty of a place. This place sees a lot of rains with 100 wet days in an year. The place has pleasant climate throughout with no extremes in seasons experienced.

Kalimpong is known to be in the Mahabharat Range. In the olden times, it was a hamlet inhabited by just two or three families. As the British empire grew they transformed it into a hill station along with the creation of Darjeeling and its proximity to Nathula which has the silk route.
