Mirik | here lake and tea gardens together

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.
