Mungpoo is a small mountain village in Darjeeling district. It's located at an average altitude of about 3,700ft and about 31kms from Darjeeling. The town was made famous because Rabindranath Tagore stayed here. Mungpoo is well known for Cinchona plantation and cultivation of other medicinal plants. The poet came to this place for its soothing and quiet ambiance, and of course for its beauty of Cinchona plantations. Although the place doesn't have views of the great snow peaks, it has a charm of its own.
