Excursions From Darjeeling

 About Darjeeling

Kalimpong

Fifty-one km east of Darjeeling and at an altitude of 1250 metres lies KalimpoKalimpong Cityng, the former headquarters of the Bhutanese Governor. It is situated amidst gently rolling "hills of Deolo and Durbindra", at the foot of the mighty Himalayas. Kalimpong is the smallest hill station between Siliguri and Gangtok. The road is one of the most scenic routes in this part of the nation.The swift flowing Teesta river runs by the side of the road adding to the beauty of the scenery.

Attractions: Gompas, Dupin Dara, Gompas, Flower nurseries, Dr Graham's Home, Nature interpretation centre.

Gangtok

Gangtok is a city, which, till one sees it, one would believe exists only in picture-story books. In the mystery-laden mists prayer flags whip in the breeze; wheels spin in the hands of Lamas mumbling invocations to God, in the distance are the snows, on the streets amidst brightly painted pagoda roofed houses, lined with friendly smiling people are silver, silk and spice and jewellery to gladden an maiden's heart.

Darjeeling - Gangtok...94 km by Road.

Kurseong : Kurseong is mid way between Siliguri and Darjeeling. The way from Darjeeling to Kurseong is generally open through out the year. So, the toy train is not coming to Siliguri then you can come up to Kurseong. This place is equally beautiful and is full of natural splendour.
Mirik Lake
Mirik : Mirik is 52 kms from Siliguri and 55 kms from the nearest Airfield of Bagdogra. Mirik is being developed as a new hill station in the mountains. Mirik is surrounded b tea estates, orange orchards and cardamom plantations. It has all the facilities to fulfill the needs of a tourist.

Siliguri / New Jalpaiguri : The twin Cities of Siliguri and New Jalpaiguri are the departure point to Darjeeling, Sikkim and the North Eastern States. Being the nodal point this place has become very busy and crowded.  Siliguri also acts as a transit point for Nepal. This place is not very pleasant to stay as there are always long lines of buses and trucks. Tourists come to Siliguri and New Jalpaiguri mainly to change bus or catch trains. If you have time then visit the almost forgotten wild life sanctuary of Jaldhapara. The best season to visit this park is between October and May. This the time when the new grass has come up and animals are out there. The sanctuary has elephants, dears, tigers and other animals but the main attraction is the Rhinos which are threatened by the poachers. Elephant Safari can be taken from Hollong.
