Bara Manguwa is settled atop Darjeeling Hills in West Bengal towards the western side of the Kalimpong hills in the Teesta Valley. It offers magnificent view of the convergence of Teesta and Rangeet Rivers on one side and with Kalimpong Hills on the other side. The village is located on the mountain. Oranges are mainly cultivated here, covering the entire village with an orange hue during the blooming season from October to February.

Bara Mangwa is 35 kms from Darjeeling and the word is derived from the Lepcha language which means ‘A big place for finger millet’. During the harvesting season when all the oranges ripe many exquisite Himalayan birds can be seen in the area, thus making it a perfect spot for bird watching.

The best time to visit Bara Mangwa is in winters when the skies remain clear and one can have a beautiful view of surroundings. Distance from Siliguri to Bara Mangwa is 60 kms and it can be reached easily by hiring a taxi. It is gaining a lot of fame from tourists now and becoming a famous tourist attraction in the location.
