                                                                                                                                      About The Place Kalimpong

The precise etymology of the name Kalimpong means Land of Kings. There are many theories on the origin of the name. One widely accepted theory claims that the name "Kalimpong" means "Assembly (or Stockade) of the King's Ministers" in Tibetan, derived from kalon ("King's ministers") and pong ("stockade"). It may be derived from the translation "ridge where we play" from Lepcha, as it was known to be the place for traditional tribal gatherings for summer sporting events. People from the hills call the area Kalempung ("the black spurs"). The town centre is on a ridge connecting two hills, Delo Hill and Durpin Hill, at an elevation of 1,247 m (4,091 ft). Delo, the highest point in Kalimpong, has an altitude of 1,704 m (5,591 ft) and Durpin Hill is at an elevation of 1,372 m (4,501 ft). The River Teesta flows in the valley below and separates Kalimpong from the state of Sikkim. The soil in the Kalimpong area is typically reddish in color. Occasional dark soils are found due to extensive existence of phyllite and schists. The Shiwalik Hills, like most of the Himalayan foothills, have steep slopes and soft, loose topsoil, leading to frequent landslides in the monsoon season.The hills are nestled within higher peaks and the snow-clad Himalayan ranges tower over the town in the distance. Mount Kanchenjunga at 8,586 m (28,169 ft) the world's third tallest peak,is clearly visible from Kalimpong.

 

                                                                                                                                     
Kalimpong has five Distinct Seasons:

Spring, Summer, Autumn,Winter and the Monsoons.
The annual temperature ranges from a high of 30 C (86 F) to a low of 9 C (48 F).
Summers are mild, with an average maximum temperature of 30 C (86 F) in August.
Summers are followed by the monsoon rains which lash the town between June and September.
The monsoons are severe, often causing landslides which sequester the town from the rest of India.
Winter lasts from December to February, with the maximum temperature being around 15 C.
During the monsoon and winter seasons, Kalimpong is often enveloped by fog.

On Your Way...

You will sometimes find that the local taxi and truck drivers briefly stop at the Sevoke Kalibari (temple of goddess Kali) on Sevoke road, offer a short prayer and then move on. This is to take the blessings for a safe onward journey through the winding roads of the mountains. It's a nice way to start the uphill journey anyway. You will then reach a place called Kalijhora. This is where a massive road construction work is going for the past several months. This place is quite dusty and prone to traffic jams. Sometimes the workers make it one way and allow traffic to pass only in one direction at a time.
