For now, I will not maintain a gallery of Kalimpong (hills) related photographs on this site. now has a Picasa Web Gallery. There are a few albums online now and hopefully we can increase the collection of photographs in this gallery.
Instead Also, I’ll try and add as many links to other online picture collections.

Links to other sites with pictures of Kalimpong (not in any particular order):

Please feel free to email me or leave a comment if you have photographs to share.

    This is a wonderful site, it brings back so many happy memories, I was a josephite batch of 1980 so if there are any josephites from my batch please ctc me at some of my class friends that I remember are diki dolma, samdup butia, anjula lama, marina namchu, the rest I don’t remember anymore becoz its been a long time,the last time I was in kpg it was 10 years ago so a lot has changed but kpg is always the best. By the way powfa(emmanuel liang)maybe u don’t remember me but I do, u used to date anjula lama from my class and u had a shoe store just below the girls high school “wanley and sons'” right, well its a long time but its nice to know u r doing fine. I have been in nyc for the past 20 years and can’t wait to go back to settle there for good. chao kpg

    yo geet mero pyaro kalimpong lai sath sath mero pyaro maya vhawana lai (my fellings)
    कहिले कही त मेरी माया सपनी मा आये हून्त्यो,
    मीठा मीठा मन का बात सुसेली मा गए हून्त्यो,
    झिल्मिलौथे मन का तारा तिम्रो छाया पाए पछी,
    फूले को त्यों जोवन तिम्रो येतई तीर झरे हून्त्यो,
    मीठा मीठा मन का बात सुसेली मा गए हून्त्यो,
    परखी बसचू गोधुली मा सूर्य जब खसे पछी,
    धेरै पीडा पर्खई मा तिमिले सबै बूझे हून्त्यो,
    कहिले कहीं मेरी माया सपनी मा आये हून्त्यो,
    मीठा मीठा मन का बात सुसेली मा गए हून्त्यो,
    चोट लाग्चा खबर तिम्रो न पाए पछी,
    मन का कूरा तिमले मलाई स्क्रेप मा लेखे हून्त्यो,
    भावना मेरो मन को तिमले बूझी दीये हून्त्यो
    म संग प्रीति को नाता तिमले जोड़े हून्तो
    मन चोरी लाने हजूर पनी,
    अफ्नो मन छोड़े हून्त्यो नि,
    नत्र चोरे को मन संग अफ्नो मन जोड़े हून्त्यो नि,
    सम्जिंचू तिमीलाई सदै भरी,
    मेरी माया मन मा तिमि सदै छाए हून्त्यो,
    कहिले कहीं मेरी माया सपनी मा आये हून्त्यो,
    मीठा मीठा मन का बात सुशेली मा गए हून्त्यो

    ..been there to Kalimpong in Dashai/Tiwar of 2008 and had lots of fun and have seen many changes too for example ” Main Road has Bocome Van Road & the footpath has become Fruit Path” because you’ll see only Maruti Vans parked and selling fruits by narrow side-walk… Traffic has become very heavy in between Teesta to Siliguri, roads are awful so you need a good deep tissue massage after every trip you’ll make to anywhere, this is my sincere advise but still my Kalimpong is standing gorgeous…

I do have vivid memories of SAS and Kalimong.Ride back to town in Pemba dajus jeep..the momos… Convent girls (with due respect to the girls high school!)…just those memories make living it so much better. I am in New York now.Feel free to contact me if the name rings a bell.

    Love a peace

    Hi Mr. Chinlop,

    Great images, no doubt about it. Being a serious/semi professional I had a chance a lot to learn a lot from your style of work.

    Hope to see your exhibition someday.

    Mr. Rao,

    really wonderful work and your sense of style in placing subjects in the frames are exquisite. Hope to meet you someday if I have a chance to drop by KPG.

    till than,
