Kurseong

Description

Located halfway between Siliguri and Darjeeling, on the Darjeeling Himalayan Railway line, the secluded hill station of Kurseong has a quiet charm. It is smaller than Darjeeling, with a milder climate because of its lower altitude. Set amidst tea gardens, with lush vegetation and a picturesque lake, Kurseong is known for its natural beauty. According to local legend, it gets its name from kurson-rip, a beautiful wild orchid found in the area.
