Tourism Attractions:

Deolo Hill
Deolo Hill is one of the two hills that the town of Kalimpong stands. Kalimpong is situated on a ridge connecting the hills of Durpin and Deolo. The hill is located north east of the town. The two water reservoirs which serve as the primary drinking water source to the town are present atop this hill. The topwn of Kalimpong, the surrounding villages of Relli valley, Teesta River and its valleys all can be viewed from this point.

Durpin Hill
Durpin Hill is one of the two hills connected by a ridge on which the town of Kalimpong stands. The hill commands a panoramic view overlooking the town of Kalimpong, the snow clad Himalayan ranges of West Sikkim, the Teesta River and its valleys and the Jelepla Pass in the distance. A golf course is also present just off the summit.

Siwalik Hills
The Siwalik Hills are the southernmost and geologically youngest foothills running parallel to the main Himalayas. The Siwalik is a relatively low-altitude mountain range cresting at 900 to 1,200 meters. The Mohan Pass is the principal pass accessing the Siwalik Hills from Saharanpur in Uttar Pradesh to Dehra and the hill station of Mussoorie in Uttarakhand. The Siwalik Hills are chiefly composed of sandstone and conglomerate formations which are the solidified and upheaved detritus of the great range in their rear, but often poorly consolidated. Sivapithecus is among many fossil finds in the region.
