After passing through Siliguri town and there after 30-40 min more drive, we saw the Simul Baari tea garden on the both sides. After 1 hour,... More

The lake town of Mirik is nestled at the foothills of the mountains on the border of India and Nepal. The road to Mirik from Ghoom is very picturesque, winding through lush pine forests on both sides of a well maintained motorable road. One passes through the town if Pashupati, which is the Indo-Nepal border and later through the beautiful... More

We did a day trip from Darjeeling to Mirik. The route was phenomenal. The mountains, valleys, gardens, people and markets along the way make the trip worth it. Mirik is a lake with a garden. There are a couple of restaurants and a park where youngsters hangout. There are paddle boats and horse riding around the lake. It could be... More

If you are only going to see the lake then it is not worth. Otherwise while coming from Darjeeling take this route because in the route you will get to see the border of Nepal and scenery and road is also good. The lake itself does not offer anything.

Nice place. There is a big lake to roam around by boat. You can also do horse ride activity over there. Can also purchase cold wear from there. Have some good restaurants to take food. For day activity it is good but for night stay i have no experience.......

This place is full of nature main attraction is on way beauties. So I advise every one who are visiting Darjeeling can cover this location at the time of return.It will take only 4-5 hrs to enjoy the beauty of this place.

Good place with nice lake. On the way to Mirik enjoy great view of tea garden. You can go on the way to Darjeeling or vice versa. Local food are good. There are some orange garden on the way to Siliguri to Mirrik. Take 1 hour break, enjoy the lake, eat local food and then you can proceed ...

A nice lake with tranquil water,beautiful surroundings is a certain destination in this area. Unlike Delo it has a different charm.Enough scenic beauty,occasional silence in case of lesser footfalls,boating,Horse riding for kids altogether makes it a highly enjoying destination.The place can be visited and overnight stay is also recommended as the catchment is loaded with natural plush plantations and Trees.Birds...
