Kalimpong Travel Guide

Kalimpong is a quaint little hill station and is perfect for those trying to escape the chaotic city life for some peace and solitude in the hills. Kalimpong is set on a ridge that connects two hills - Deolo and Durpin Hills and is at a height of 4091 feet above the sea level. The snow-covered Mt. Kanchenjunga is visible from almost everywhere in Kalimpong. The Testa River that separates Kalimpong from the state of Sikkim, flows all along the highway as you drive up to Kalimpong from Siliguri through numerous hairpin bends and hillsides that are covered with tall, swaying green pine trees.

The hill station is dotted with Buddhist monasteries, temples and few churches that ooze old world charm. The weekly bazaars have been in operation since anybody cares to remember and hold surprises at every turn and shop. Kalimpong is the just the place to recharge your batteries but that does not mean that it lacks colour. The Buddhist festivals add a huge dose of colour as do the many fairs and they ensure that your holiday is bright, exciting and peaceful at the same time.

So travel to Kalimpong for a truly relaxed, serene holiday!

Don't leave without tasting locally made lollipops and cheese!
