Kurseong is adorned with rolling hill slopes, crammed with tea plantations, and green hills, speckled closely with conifer forests, among other splendours. From the Kurseong DHR station/main market junction, a steep road climbs uphill, off the Hill Cart Road that leads to the tallest of the scenic hills of Kurseong, namely, the Dow Hill and beyond. Once we travel about four and a half kilometres along this Baghgora/Dowhill Road, we reach the Dow Hill Eco Park, which is the renovated original Deer Park of Kurseong. A vast portion of the Dow hill is so covered with dense forest and towering pine trees, and remain eternally covered with mist, that some locals used to frighten with incidences ranging from leopards targeting the sheep and goats to paranormal mysteries. Apart from the mysterious sounds inside the deep woods and the stories of ghosts and spirits, Dow Hill really has much more scenic treasures to offer. At the foot of Dow Hill is the Dow Hill Girls’ School with its majestic colonial façade and Victoria Boys’ School. A little away is the West Bengal Forest School Museum, the Forest School and the Hostel. The Central Water Reservoir at Durpin, which is a source used by the Kurseong Municipality to manage the potable water resources is also very close. One can also continue further to trek up to the top, passing through the shadows of the towering pine trees, and then walk back using the short cuts through the Jungle. It’s quite unlikely to spot any ghost or even a leopard, but definitely the experience will no wonder have a mystic effect. Alternately, opt to take a Cab to the top and then walk back. The downhill walk from Dow Hill offers a panoramic view of the Kurseong town with its splendid natural scenes, carpeted tea estates, hill tops, very prominently, the Eagle’s Crag, surrounded by the communication towers, on the other side of the Kurseong station, as well as the beautiful cottages of the British era. Try to keep aside a day or half to wander freely around the Dow Hill to enjoy its splendour.
