About district

Situated at an altitude of 1300 metres on the eastern part of Darjeeling Himalayas, the Kalimpong district was formed on 14 February 2017, after splitting from the Darjeeling district as the 21st district of West Bengal. It consists of the Kalimpong Municipality with 23 wards and three community development blocks: Kalimpong I, Kalimpong II and Gorubathan consisting of 42 gram panchayats. The attraction of the mighty Himalayas, pristine beauty of the Dooars, dense virgin flora, enchanting valleys and meadows and of course the perennial shinning but chilling weather together have placed Kalimpong district in the map of the most important tourist destinations in the Eastern Himalayas. Kalimpong is home to the most diverse varieties of orchid, cactus and ornamental plants.
