Where to stay in Kalimpong

Shoestring travelers to Kalimpong will find most options concentrated in the somewhat chaotic center of this market town. Those looking for some peace and quiet should explore hotels and guesthouses just outside of the center, where eco-hotels and spa resorts with panoramic views complete the range of options. Shop around a bit, as you might find luxury accommodations at budget prices.
