This big monastery was visited and blessed by His Holiness Dalai Lama. It offers stunning views on the surrounding mountains.

Durpin Dara Hill is nice place offers panoramic mountain view of snow covered himaliyan peaks. Atop the hill sits the Zang Dhok Palri Monastery which was consecrated by the Dalai Lama in 1976.

Absolutely amazing

A peaceful getaway that one would cherish for long. A must visit even though it's a bit away from the town. Best way after reaching kalimpong is to hire a local cab and go around seeing places rather than searching for places and parkings as roads are narrow at many a places and roadside parkings makes things harder.

Well worth the walk or taxi ride up to the top with views over Kalimpong. A good place for peace and quiet away from the hubbub of Kalimpong

Durpin Dara Hills
Oct 2019 • Couples
There are two tourist spots in Kalimpong in two different directions. One is Durpin Dara Hill and the other is Delo. 30 years back when I visited Kalimpong I really enjoyed the pristine surroundings of Durpin Dara and the spectacular view that it’s winding road offers. The famous Morgan House and Hilltop hotels are situated on this route. Locals say the heritage Morgan House hotel which is now run by the Tourism Dept of WB Govt is a haunted place. This time I was thoroughly disappointed to witness the wretched road conditions and the shabby surroundings. It wasn’t worth visiting.

Monastery
Feb 2019 • Friends
A big beautiful monastery is located on this hill. We went during prayer time and it was so peaceful experience. From the topmost floor of the monastery bird's eye view of the small town of kalimpong is just wonderful. According to local guide it was called "durbin" meaning binocular hill. Nowadays it's called durbin. One of the best attractions of kalimpong located very close to the town. Must visit when in kalimpong

Number ONE spot at Kalimpong

The Monastery situated atop is the main attraction. The monastery is huge and marvelous. The interior walls are beautifully crafted. The view from the topmost roof is splendid.

A nice monastery tucked at the top of a mountain, you would enjoy visting Durpin Dara. It is near to the Morgan house and the golf course. Good for a day trip.
