Mirik (মিরিক) is a picturesque travel destination, located in
Darjeeling district of West Bengal at Indo-Nepal border. Mirik means ‘a place
burnt by fire’ in Lepcha language. Today I will discuss about few attractive
homestay located in and around Mirik.
Mirik is famous
for its Mirik Lake, tea gardens, orange orchards and surrounded green mountain
slopes. You can enjoy boating in Mirik Lake. The road goes to Mirik from
Darjeeling through tea gardens. Go to uphill to the lake to enjoy memorizing sun
rise and sun set. Generally people go to Mirik for sight seen or package tour
from Darjeeling, but I will suggest staying at Mirik at least 2 nights to feel
the charm of Mirik.
Also visit Tabakosi - only 6 km from Mirik
