History
glenburn
Kalimpong Town is a 2-hour drive away from Glenburn, and has some interesting blends of Buddhist, Christian and Hindu influences with its monasteries, gompas, temples and missionary activities. The local bazaar (Wednesdays and Saturdays) is a delightful place to shop and interact with the local ethnic mix of Lepcha, Bhutia and Nepali communities. Our drivers would be happy to share some of our secret shopping addresses with you - Nepali and Chinese brocade fabrics, silks, Tibetan curios and Buddhist paraphernalia, and of course the famous Kalimpong Lollipops and Kalimpong Cheese.

For orchid lovers, it provides a real treat with its many nurseries and rich flora. The snow-capped mountains provide panoramic views of the surrounding countryside, and at an altitude of 6,000 feet, the air is crisp and cool. A visit to the nearby Samthar Plateau can also be arranged, but best done as an overnight stay. The Kalimpong Monastery is situated in a very picturesque area, near the army cantonment.

A game of golf can also be organized with prior notice.
