Mirik Overview
This charming hill station, lying cosily amidst the Darjeeling Hills, is one of the most scenic places to see in West Bengal. An erstwhile trading centre the name of which translates to ‘place burnt by fire’ traces its routes to British-era India. Located at around 4,905 ft. above sea level, Mirik is one of the few places in Bengal to offer stupendous views of the Kanchenjunga.

Highlight of the place: The calm Sumendu Lake for its 80-ft. long bridge, boating, pony rides, and its charming promenade. Its lush orange orchards and tea plantations are a must-visit along with the Pashupati market for its Nepalese handicrafts & clothes. Other great attractions include the Bokar Monastery, Rameetay Dhara for its views of the Kanchenjunga, and the Mirik Church.

Best time to visit: Summer season of March-June. People who love snowfall and winter sports can visit in the winter months of November-February.
