Located around 2½ hours drive from Darjeeling, Kalimpong is at a lower altitude and therefore enjoys milder, pleasant weather for most of the year. It was once under the dynasty of the King of Bhutan but was handed over to the British in 1864. The main attractions are the many monasteries and temples, numerous lovely viewpoints of Mount Kanchenjunga, flower nurseries and famous missionary schools.
