Durpin has a beautiful monastery which also has housing for monks. The monastery has good paintings inside and provides views of the mountains around it. It also has several stupas in the compound which look good.

Durpin Dara is one of the two hills (the other being Deolo Hill). It offers a panoramic view overlooking the Kalimpong town. We were told that snow clad Himalayan ranges can also be viewed from here, however we visited the hill on a cloudy day and hence could not get a view of snow-clad mountains. The hill also provides view of Teesta River and its valleys. Zang Dhok Palri Monastery is situated atop the hill. It was a different experience to visit the hill on a cloudy day under cool breeze and walking through the clouds.

It is included in the Kalimpong City site tour. To reach there, you have to cross the army cantonment area (a no photography zone). Once you reach The Durpin monastery, a serene atmosphere will welcome you- away from the hustle bustle of daily life.
There is a large playground behind the monastery. The view of the clear sky and mountains is a treat to eyes!
In the monastery, you can pray to calm yourself. There is a staircase on one side, from where you may reach 1st and 2nd floor of the monastery- where mesmerizing surrounding view welcome you.

Said as the highest point in Kalimpong which is accessible by car.
It offers a beautiful view of the plains and the mighty river Teesta.
On the other side is the Beautiful Monastery.
Can be visited.

With my 11 friends, I had done short but wonderful village trekking from Himalayan Eagle Resort, chibbo busty Kalimpong to Durpin Dara point. It was a 1 hr. amazing trek, but when we reached there and saw the Mt. Kanchanjunga, it was more & more AMAZING. From Durpin Dara the Mt. Kanchanjunga view is very clear & closer.

Located within the military cantonment is the Durpin Dara view point. A newly built monastery is the main attraction in the area. It is located away from the town and is recommended to reserve a taxi for a visit.
