Durpin Dara Hill is another hill which offers a magnificent view of the Chola Range of Sikkim, the town of Kalimpong, the Teesta River, the valleys and the snow-clad Himalayan ranges of West Sikkim. At a distance the Jelepla Pass is also seen from Durpin Dara Hill. A golf course is also present. The Durpin Dara Hill is above the sea level of approximately 4501 feet and it is located in the south-west of the town. Durpin Dara Hill is 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 parking as roads are narrow at many a places and roadside parking makes things harder.
