Many of Darjeeling’s most interesting sights are close to Kalimpong, making it a smart choice as a place to base yourself during your visit. Among the most interesting places to see are the marvelous Samdruptse and the incredible Tiger Hill. And if your schedule allows, be sure to visit Chowrasta and Raj Bhavan.
To really understand Darjeeling, take a trip to one of its many cultural destinations. Take a guided tour, admire the architecture or simply enjoy the fascinating artworks at the Himalayan Mountaineering Institute Museum.
If the weather is good get outdoors and appreciate the nearby green spaces. There are no shortage of family parks, so take a picnic blanket to the Botanical Gardens. To see the local wilderness head out to the Neora Valley National Park.
At the end of a day enjoying Kalimpong, put up your feet and relax in one of the area’s popular hotels or serviced apartments. If you’re looking for a warm welcome and a good nights sleep it’s hard to go past the Dekeling Hotel, the Sterling Holidays Darjeeling - Silver Oaks, and the popular MAYFAIR Darjeeling.
