Today I will discuss about 3 best offbeat
and less-known travel destination around Darjeeling. You will find peace of
mind and bustle and hassle free life from your city life with the charm of
Kurseong located only 47 kms away from Siliguri and
situated on 4800 ft above sea level. It’s a small amazing hill station, very
near of charming Darjeeling in Darjeeling district of West Bengal. Kurseong can
be a good option for Puja vacation, you can spend few days at Kurseong during
Durga puja. The name Kurseong derived from local Lepcha language, which is
‘Kharsang’, meaning ‘Land of the White Orchids’.
In my opinion, best attraction of Kurseong is fog, so many form of fog can be
seen here. Kurseong is on the way to Darjeeling from Siliguri, maximum number
of people thinks Kurseong as halt destination, but I will recommend staying
here to feel and explore misty unexplored Kurseong.
Kurseong is a very small town, total area only 5 sq. kms, number of cool places
are scattered around the town. Railway station is one of the main attractions
of the town, this is a really nice place to spend time. Also take a visit to
historical railway museum, which is within the station campus.
Take a small walk through Kurseong railway station to ‘Eagle’s Craig view
point’, from here you can see charming view of whole Kurseong town. Famous
Makaibari Tea Estate and tea processing unit just beside main Kurseong town,
taste a cup tea here.
Also you can take sightseeing tour to Netaji house, rain forest near Dow Hill
School, St. Pauls Church, Choiling Monastery and Monteviot gompa. Read More..

burnt by fire’ in Lepcha language. Today I will discuss about few attractive
homestay located in and around Mirik.

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
