Kalimpong Darjeeling

Kalimpong, located at an altitude of 4,100 ft, is a subdivision of Darjeeling district and under West Bengal state in India. The weather is milder and pleasant for most part of the year with magnificent views of Kanchenjunga and other Himalayan snow peaks, sweeping landscapes and lush greenery.

Darjeeling is a town in India's West Bengal state, in the Himalayan foothills. Once a summer resort for the British Raj elite, it remains the terminus of the narrow-gauge Darjeeling Himalayan Railway, or “Toy Train,” completed in 1881. It's famed for the distinctive black tea grown on plantations that dot its surrounding slopes. Its backdrop is Mt. Kanchenjunga, among the world’s highest peaks.
