Dhotrey. This picturesque hamlet was the starting point of our trek. Surrounded by forests of pine and rhododendron, this quaint little village is the perfect place to start the trek. The ascent to Tumling is gradual six kilometer trek through dense rhododendron forests. The forest canopy is a mind boggling melange of red, pink and magenta from the blooming Rhododendrons interspersed with the white Magnolias.Approaching Tumling, the forests melts away into the meadows. We crossed mist filled valleys braving chilly winds on barren slopes occasionally punctuated by "Chorten"s and "Mane"s; holy Buddhist structures festooned by fluttering prayer flags.

The twin towns of Malda and English Bazaar make for an unusual holiday destination. Serving as a gateway to Bengal, one usually spots Malda on the way to Siliguri from Kolkata. Malda is a very small city, though the places surrounding it are considered to hold great architectural significance. Some of these destinations are also mentioned by the Archaeological Survey of India, including Gour, Farakka Barage and Jouhra Kali Bari. Gour, the erstwhile capital of Bengal is home to the original footprints of Lord Mohammad and it is very well preserved here. Adina is home to a beautiful mosque and if you have a few hours to spare, this small town deserves a visit. If you are a history buff, Malda will be a pleasure to discover, though you'll have to do a little research before setting out to explore.
