Lolegaon (in local dialect, means a happy village) is a small tiny village, located in the kalimpong Sub Division of Darjeeling District and one of the most beautiful place in the Darjeeling village tourism. One can cover this place on foot in barely couple of minutes!!! Tourist will be blessed by a giant statue of Lord Buddha in the Eco Tourism Park when you enter Lolegaon.
In Lolegaon, you can indulge in many interesting activities, like simple jungle walks, since jungles have lot hidden treasures in them. The sunrise point Jhanidara, is about 4 km from Lolegaon and you’ll be greeted with the majestic view of sunrise of Mt Kanchenjunga. The most beautiful attraction of Lolegaon is the canopy walk — it is a dense forest with a walking trail and part of the trees have been joined together to form a 75 meter long canopy. It is a lovely walk through the forests – the chirping birds, buzzing insects and fleeting butterflies, the shades of dark and light as the sun barely made its way thru the dense forests and above all the smell of the jungle — all will add an aroma to your entire trip and the revelations are slow and full of surprises, the idea behind a walk maybe to simply explore a trail, or maybe to get a feel of the jungle. or to climb on top of the cliff you have been eyeing for long days. Guest can follow the birds while the kids collect dry leaves for their scrap books.
