Lolegaon


Lolegaon

One of the least trodden hamlets in the hidden Kalimpong hill, Lolegaon is a stunning offbeat tourist destination. If you are looking for a break from the modernized travel destinations and want to spend few leisurely days in the vast natural canvas thrown open before you, Lolegaon is the best bet. Nestled atop a flat hill on a forested ridge at an altitude of 5500ft Loleygaon / Lolegaon is a place of ethereal wilderness and tranquility.

Basically a small Lepcha village also known as Kafer, Lolegaon is a recent inclusion in tourism map of West Bengal for its magnificent view of Greater Himalayan snow ranges that spreads over the entire horizon. Viewing sunrise over the snow peaks from Jhandidara - a wooded hilltop - is perhaps the most treasured memory of being at Lolegaon. In a clear day all major peaks of Kanchenjunga massif can be seen from here. Even the glorious Mt Everest can be seen from Jhandi Dara (Jhandi = Flag, Dara = Top) as your eyes sweep across the layers of mountains and valleys and reach the distant corner, where the highest peak in the world is touched by the first rays of the Sun.

Lolegaon is a fabulous destination for the lovers of wildlife in their natural habitat. The age-old forest of towering pine, cypress and oaks with their mossy trunk is an ideal place for watching endangered Himalayan species like black bear and mountain goats, numerous colourful birds and butterflies and rare orchids. The Heritage Forest at 10 minutes walking distance is the place to feel the exquisite wealth that nature has showered here. The hanging foot bridge over the canopy of huge trees is a special attraction. Popularly known as 'The Canopy Walk' it offers an unforgettable experience, which allows you to get close to the trees.

Lolegaon offers some exciting short treks in the remote kalimpong hills. A day trek to Samthar or Relly in the unseen lower Himalayas can be a real opportunity to know the different aspects of lives in Indian countryside.
