We visited Mirik while returning from Darjeeling. It has a lake amidst a green valley. The place looks beautiful and good for some clicks. But then, there is not much to spend more time here. Therefore, I would not recommend this as a must-see place. However, if you are returning from Darjeeling and need a break, you can halt here.... More

Earlier the place was an excellent tourist spot with mystic weather. Now it lost its old charm. The front side of the lake become parking spot for cars and the place is not properly clean also. If you go there you can try horse ride.
