An altitude of 1458 metres, a pleasant climate throughout the year, rolling hills with tea estates, relics of the colonial era and an unhurried pace of life lures the tourists to the picturesque hill-station Kurseong, 32 km from Darjeeling. Kurseong meaning “The Place of White Orchid” is noted for its secluded charm. Eagle's Crag offers a commanding view of the undulating plains below. Because of its lower elevation, tourists enjoy a mild and very healthy climate throughout the year. Some fine specimens of colonial architecture also attract the people to Kurseong.
Kurseong is much more than what it may seem. Its spread is beyond the township to lovely tea gardens along the mountain slopes, forests with many different flora & fauna, quaint villages and so on. And expectedly, there are many view-points, tea estates, temples & churches, museums, as well as famous historic schools that were setup during the British colonial days. You can easily spend two to three days in Kurseong and remain immersed with its attractions.
