Pedong stands on the old silk route that connected India and Tibet through Jelep La. This quaint little hill station is one of the few in North Bengal which an avalanche of tourists has not managed to spoil.

Kanchenjungha

Nearly 22km from Kalimpong, Pedong is a picturesque hamlet situated on a ridge and surrounded by pine forests. It commands a majestic view of the Kanchenjungha.

Teesta

The Teesta flows for almost the entire length of the journey from New Jalpaiguri to Pedong. We passed the Coronation Bridge, Kalimpong, Algaraha and several other tiny hamlets before reaching Pedong.

Pedong

Near Pedong are the ruins of Damsang Gadi, a historical fort built in 1690 by the Lepchas. It was at the centre of the long-standing feud with the Dukpas of Bhutan. Later, it was used to ward off the forces of the British East India Company.  Another highlight of the town is the Cross Hill.
