The views from Delo View Point provide one with memories to cherish a lifetime and leave one in awe of the many gifts of Mother Nature.
Delo Hill is one of the two hills at the ridge of which the town of Kalimpong stands. At 1,704 meters above MSL, the hill is a small and peaceful Himalayan hamlet and is located northeast of the town. The town of Kalimpong, the surrounding villages of Relli valley, Teesta River and its valleys, all add to the wondrous view that this gifted spot exposes one to.
On a wonderful clear day, the sun gleams at the breath-taking view of the snow-clad mountains and the Kanchenjunga visible from here. The 360-degree panoramic view of Kalimpong town and its neighbouring hills is what attracts visitors to the Delo view point atop the Delo Hill.
