KALIMPONG

Kalimpong is a subdivision of Darjeeling district and under West Bengal state. Kalimpong town itself is small, located about 2.5 hours drive from both Darjeeling and Siliguri. But the town and its surrounding areas offer immense opportunities for tourism. Kalim in local dialect means King’s Minister and Pong means Stronghold. So the name Kalimpong actually means Stronghold of King’s Minister and has originated from the time of king’s dynasty in the region. Some say that the name has been derived from the word Kalibong (locals call it Kaulim). It’s a type of fiber plant used for making paper. This plant is found in abundance in Kalimpong and hence the name.
