We started at around 10 AM and on the way, we could see the Tea garden of Jalpaiguri welcoming us :
Curious monkey saying hello while we leave the plain areas and started our journey towards hill.
In between, we get to see the temporary road block and road not so great. But that’s purely temporary as cool air from the Hills welcomes us soon.
Weather gets better and better as temperature dips and we can see the hills come out in glory after three hours of journey from siliguri. In between, we could get to see the wild flowers and beautiful landscape.
A little known village named Chuikhim welcomed us. Check the Time of India link
At around 1.30 PM, we reached the Resort named Blue Pine Retreat. Its recommended by TripAdvisor as well and we found its pretty good (4/5) due to its serenity and excellent service.
A furry silent dog welcomed us
Reception desk of this Resort is simple and staffs are very friendly
Outdoor is nicely decorated with manicured lawns and flowers blooming pretty.
The Ceiling of the dining hall cum reception is nicely painted as you can see here :
Overnight train journey had made us tired. A sumptuous lunch is what we all wanted and the Resort did not disappoint us at all.
For the rest of the story of our visit to Kalimpong and Darjeeling, stay tuned as I will try to narrate it in great details in separate post.
Till then, have a great weekend !
