Kalimpong is an alluring little town nestled away in the hills of West Bengal surrounded by the river Teesta. Lovely people and pleasant surroundings, the place still retains some old world British charm. Reach the top, known as Dealo hill, which gives a bird eye view of the entire town with snow capped Mt. Kanchenjunga sheathing it. If the fog permits, one can even para-glide around the valley. From activity to peacefulness, calm yourselves at the Durbindara monastery which is a sight in itself. Famous for its cacti cultivation, the town is full of numerous nurseries, some of which are open to visitors. The cacti grown here are exported all over the world and you'll be captivated by the beauty of these prick-y plants. Binge on hot momos and stroll around the local markets, this place will not disappoint you.
