Bindu

A small picturesque hill village on the Indo-Bhutan border, Bindu is a lesser known tourist destination in the lower Kalimpong foothills.

The small town can be used as a base for several short treks in the lower Kalimpong hills. The most popular one starts from Todey to Tangta and leads towards Nerora Valley National Park.

The area around is famous for cardamom plantation. Apart from agricultural plantations, intercropping inside forest is also common. The kingdom of Bhutan is just on the other side of Jaldhaka river. There is no restriction for locals to cross boarder and villagers from nearby Bhutanese area can be seen visiting the local market to buy essentials.

The principal attraction of the place is its natural beauty. At an altitude of about 800 meters, Bindu is a low altitude hill station. Local people and their culture, forests, river, the Jaldhaka dam nearby makes this place an ideal sojourn for the city dweller.

Getting There

Bindu can be reached from Siliguri by a 3 hrs journey through the Dooars plains. Total distance from Siliguri is 110kms. The nearest Airport is at Bagdogra and the major railhead is New Jalpaiguri (both on the outskirts of Siliguri town). The nearest rail station in Chalsa and Nagrakata both about 30 kms away.

The journey to Bindu via Chalsa – Khunia - Jhalong route is a fascinating one as the road passes through beautiful teagardens, high forests, river valleys and small quiet villages. The serene landscape of the valley with silvery Jaldhaka stream flowing through it makes the place an attractive offbeat destination in North Bengal. The babbling Jaldhaka stream cutting across the deep gorge is a nice place for spending leisure hours.
