Kalimpong is a quiet Himalayan bazaar, cosmopolitan in nature, but rich in cultural and religious heritage. The drive to Kalimpong from Siliguri is magnificently enjoyable along the forest and the Teesta river. Kalimpong still evokes strong memories of the British colonial period, and a visit to the Graham's Home or to St Theresa Church on your way to the Deolo Hills reminds that only. You can include the Dupin Dara Hills, Army Golf Course, the monasteries and the nurseries in your visiting list. A day trip to Charkhole-Lolegaon-Rikisum or to Pedong-Rishi-Aritar is possible or even you can stay back at Rikkisum at night, only to test the flavour of village home stay .
How to reach:
76km from Siliguri, 2hr30min journey by road via Sevok-Rambhi-Teesta Bazar, Buses and Share jeep are also available frequently.
Where to Stay:
Good quality Hotels are there in the town area, but if you prefer to stay in peace and tranquillity then the best choice is The Sana Hill Top.
