Honeymoon in Kalimpong

Destination


If you want to give an immaculate start to your conjugal life, then you should be making detailed arrangements for a post-wedding sojourn to Kalimpong. Kalimpong is a relatively unexplored hill resort lying in close proximity to the world-renowned hill-stations of Darjeeling and Gangtok. Newlyweds rush to this quaint hill-station tucked away in the lower fringes of the Mahabharata Himalayas to immerse in its stunningly attractive vistas and rejuvenate themselves by visiting the different Buddhist Gompas, and wildlife sanctuaries.

Kalimpong also offers spectacular adventure options like trekking, rafting, mountaineering, and nature walks. The hill-station, comfortably nestled on a ridge linking two hills, Durpin Hill and Deolo Hill offers some of the most breathtaking panoramas of Mount Kanchenjunga-the third highest mountain peak in the world. You’ll also find the vistas of the surrounding Himalayan Mountains no less arresting.

The impressive views of the Teesta-Torsa Valley with the Teesta River flowing by swiftly will be forever etched in your memories. You can look forward to an exclusively private and tranquil honeymoon in the ‘Land of Kings’ (meaning of Kalimpong) replete with age-old Buddhist monasteries, ancient churches, holy temples, and flower markets. You’ll simply love to take a walk in the lush green woods and in the terraced tea estates. You’ll feel transcendental when the heavy aroma of the mountain flowers fills your nostrils.

Location


The small yet petite hill-station of Kalimpong is situated in West Bengal and lies on the NH 31A linking Sevoke town to Gangtok-the capital of Sikkim. The NH31A is a branch of NH31 that connects Siliguri with Sevoke. Kalimpong is the main town of the Kalimpong sub-division which again is a section of Darjeeling.
