Mirik, Darjeeling

Mirik

Surrounded by lush tea garden at an altitude of 1495mt is a sleepy hamlet called Mirik. The name Mirik comes from the Lepcha words Mir-Yok meaning “place burnt by fire”. The serene ambiance with pleasant weather throughout the year along with the picturesque sight has made Mirik one of the most favored destinations on the travelers list. Located 49km from the Darjeeling Mirik came into the tourist map in 1950 but still it is unknown to many travelers. The freshness and quaint surrounding of Mirik can make anyone feel like they found tranquility and serenity.

Cuddled near the Nepal border, halfway between Siliguri and Darjeeling, Mirik is a low-profile hill station and honeymoon destination and has a famous land mark, Sumendu Lake. Sumendu lake or as locals calls it Mirik Jill, this lake is in the heart of Mirik with a good 1/2 km long, the serene water body has the Khangchendzongha Range as its backdrop and is framed by forests of oak and chestnut. The lake is surrounded by garden on one side and pine trees on the other connected by an arch footbridge called Indreni Pull (Rainbow Bridge) if the visitor is not willing to take a full round of the lake. For those who love to take long walks it’s a pleasant 3 and a half km long path which winds around the lake. There are pony rides, boating, fish feeding and picnics to enjoy, and you can hop onto a paddle boat for a breezy spin around the lake. On a clear day the lake reflects the image of the Mt Kanchenjunga which just adds a whole new level in the lake’s beauty. The journey to this quaint hamlet is an amazing experience in itself. Travelling through the lush tea garden and Japanese cypress forest in the winding road while witnessing the scenic view of changing vegetation of orange orchard and cardamom plantation to reach the sleepy hamlet Mirik can be one of the memorial moments to cherish of Mirik.

Inflating your lungs with the rich aroma of the lush tea garden while relaxing near the famous landmark of Mirik lake Sumendu with your loved loves can be an ideal way to spend your weekend far away from the rambunctious city life. The alluring charisma of Lake Sumendu with the backdrop view of glorious Mt Kanchenjunga amidst the lush tea garden of Mirik has ensnared the heart of many travellers.
