A charming hill resort centred on a lake and enclosed in beautiful surroundings is almost an independent destination. It is ideal for a quiet serene holiday. The 50km drive from Darjeeling is by itself a very enjoyable experience. For activities in the township you can go for walks in the countryside, enjoy boating on the lake, and visit the Buddhist monastery or orange groves.
