A beautiful lake side town nestled in the mighty Himalayan range

About 37 kilometres from #Siliguri, a commercial hub of #WestBengal, the route to this lakeside town is mesmerising with the numerous tea gardens along the way that starts right after leaving the hustle and bustle of Siliguri.

We managed to catch a colourful shared cab in the early hours of a Monday from Siliguri junction after a sweltering train ride to #NJP. It was extremely hot even at that time of the day, but once you reach the highway that passes through the #Mahananda #WildlifeSanctuary, the sheer beauty of the scenery is all that matters.
