The beautiful white orchids (called kurson-rip in Lepchan language) dotting the valley gave this lovely hill station its name - Kurseong. Kurseong is situated at an altitude of 1458 mts, and about 30 KMs away from Darjeeling. Enjoy the scenic mountain beauty of this quaint little town and take in the panoramic view of the lush green valley. Take the toy train, that goes everywhere in the town.
Visit the tea estates and learn how the famous Darjeeling tea is produced. Eagle's Crag is a vista point that offers stunning views of the city of Siliguri, basked in the soft evening light. Bagdogra airport is the closest, about 60 KMs downhill from Kurseong and if taking train, consider alighting at Siliguri or New Jalpaiguri railway stations.
