Kolkata India`s largest city is the capital of West Bengal and was founded by the remarkable English merchant trader Job Charnock in 1690.
Darjeeling (about 100 kms from New Jalpaiguri) is at an elevation of 7000ft above the sea. The drive to Darjeeling is through interesting mountain country of brilliant red rhododendrons, charming white magnolias and majestic pines. The mountain slopes gently flow down in waves of green tea-bushes. The train of the Himalayan Railways carrying people can be seen chugging along the road side.
Gangtok (124 kms from Bagdogra) is the capital of the State of Sikkim. The city lies on a ridge overlooking the Ranipool River. The simple, ever-smiling hill people, colourful lamas, exotic monasteries and prayer flags fluttering in the wind combined with the scenic beauty of the Himalayan terrain provides a fascinating sight.
Kalimpong is at an altitude of 1250 mts. It is a quiet resort town 50 km from Darjeeling, and has a population of 5000. Visit the Tibetan Monasteries which date back to 1836, the Blind school and the Durpin Dara Hill from where you have a panoramic view of the Himalayas.
