    Kalimpong

    The hill town of Kalimpong, which was formerly a part of Bhutan before being seized by the British and included to the Indian Territory, is home to several historic churches, popular temples, and ancient Buddhist monasteries. Kalimpong, a town in the lower Himalayas, has sweeping views of Sikkim’s Teesta Rangit Valley.

    The distance between Kalimpong and Darjeeling, a hill station in East India’s West Bengal province, is around 53 kilometres. In 1866, the town was included into the Darjeeling district. The Kalimpong subdivision and the Darjeeling district were given form in 1866–1867 when the shared boundaries between the two were established by an Anglo–Bhutanese committee. It quickly established itself as a key trading hub for the exchange of fur, wool, and food grains between India and Tibet thanks to its closeness to the historic Silk Road branches of Nathu La and Jelep La. Numerous migrants from Nepal were drawn to the region because of the booming trade, which increased both the population and the economy.

    The hill station joined West Bengal in 1947 after India gained its freedom. Before China annexed Tibet during the Sino-Indian War, Kalimpong served as a crossing point for commerce between Tibet and India. On the outskirts of the town lies the 27 Mountain Division of the Indian Army.
