"The Land of White Orchids"

Kurseong Tourism

Also known as the 'Land of White Orchids', Kurseong is a hill station located close to Darjeeling famous for its waterfalls, temples and Buddhist gompas apart from the excellent view that the place provides.

Perched on the Siliguri-Darjeeling highway, Kurseong is a quiet hill station. Kurseong enjoys milder and pleasant weather most times of the year. During the monsoon season the rain-gods are more than generous as the town receives non-stop rains for days. The rains are in fact much needed for the flora and fauna of the area. Kurseong, the 'Land of White Orchids', gets its name from the flowers found in abundance on its hill-slopes. It's difficult not to fall in love with the view of tea plantations, lush green forests in the panoramic setting of snow-clad mountains. At sunset, you can see an amalgamation of the most beautiful colors in the sky. You can see the British remnants in the form of churches and school in the town. This small hill-town makes for a great stopover for tourists looking for a more peaceful alternative to Darjeeling.

Holidify's Opinion

  What's Great?

Famous for the white orchids. Also known for its tea estates.

  What's not so Great?

Ideal only for a laid back vacation. No adventure activities available.

For Whom

Kurseong is an ideal hill station for people who want to derive the pleasure of being surrounded by the alpine beauty without worrying about the high altitude and bone-chilling cold. Ideal for trekkers, historical enthusiasts, as well as spiritual devotees. Equally suitable for backpackers from nearby sites like Kolkata, Kharagpur, etc.


Kurseong is one of the only two places where you can relish the authentic Muscatel organic tea. Hence, there is no way that you can miss this rare beverage while you are here. The other specialties include Thukpa Noodle Soup and steamed momos at the roadside stalls. You can also try the local drinks such as Channg and Tongba as well as sip in some of the finest varieties of Darjeeling tea, found in the area.
