Kalimpong is on the border of West Bengal.
It is the last town before we enter Sikkim.
Although distances are not as large as most other areas in India. The cab drivers are always up to take you for a ride on the fare.
Unlike Ladhak where taxi fares are monitored. Darjeeling, Kalimpong and Sikkim are completely run by individual taxi drivers and small associations which over charge tourists.
You can book a cab only in the convenience of the association and not based on any set timing. So until you are sitting in a cab you will never know if your booking is done or not!
But the sights of Kalimpong like the Delo House is a must see. Its a true walk in the clouds. This is a plateau surrounded by mountains and is the only place where you get a 360 view of the mountains and rivers in the valley!
A true depiction of Nature and a perfect photo op.
