  • This place is quite far from the town, the best way to reach there is a reserve taxi or you can find shared taxi from the motor stand to lebong till lebong tea garden and a bit uphill walk for 15 mins This place is the place where the Tibetan refugees first settled in Darjeeling When the Tibetan chased away from Tibet by the Chinese This place has measum where you will know details about Tibetan and about there country There is a small factory where the Tibetan make carpets and rugs it's interesting to see how they make this in a traditional old way You can also buy their hand made products there Now most of the young people are out from there for better jobs you will find mostly old people there
  • Inspirational Experience, cool place where you can see how the make different type of handicrafts. People are very nice and helpful they tell you what and how they are doing. There is a showroom where they sell this thing in cheap cost quality of products is very good. It is little bit far away form town center. watch video here https://youtu.be/OK2vxwMzr5M
  • Far away place but poor rest room facility
  • This place features a very informative photo gallery about Tibet and it's people's story and how they came to be refugees. You will be very interested if you are a fan of history. There is a shortcut pathway to this place from bhudia busty monastry. Ask any local for it.

Where to stay in Darjeeling

A popular hillside resort town with plenty of attractions old, new, natural, and manmade, Darjeeling has a good number of accommodations to cater to the long list of visitors. Hotels and lodges across the main urban area provide the most popular options in town, with some newly built accommodations sitting alongside particularly well-maintained colonial-era properties. Hostels can be found on the side streets in the main urban area, while further out of town sit a number of eco-lodges and old plantation houses, now open as hotels or rental cottages.
