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.

    What i miss here most about kalimpong & hills is that wet, dark monsoon & survival of those non-stop rainy season with pair of shoes and a bamboo stick umbrella and if lucky sometime with that “Barsaati”.
    The most beautiful picture ever remains in the back of my mind is that moment when rain stops for a brief moment, the cloud disperse and that most magnificient bright sunshine comes out from nowhere for maybe half an hour and you can have a glimpse of those white clouded mountains in distance is the most spectacular memories of my life remains there for forever….

    oh monsoon ! in kalimpong is so charming although it is quiet long & wet but its’ still charming, you don’t see nothing in horizon for months but its’ still charming. Clothings, shoes gets wet beyond ones imagination but still the smell of that mud and rain, nowhere to be found but only in kalimpong… oh! kalimpong you are the place i want to born again if i ever have to…..

    Its not true that the medium of instruction in sumi is Nepali.I was the student of S.U.M institution in the year of 1977.My great Principle was P.R Pradhan (Tiger) so please don`t write nonsense things ofcourse,we had Nepali,Hindi ,Bengali and other languages too,

    Hello,Iam urmila[tinku],Iam from kalimpong,near kalimpong college ,well now Iam in uk and settled with my husband rajeev rai and two children ,he is in the british army.I always miss my kalimpong,my relatives and my friends.


  10. To Shyam Shah, comment #160:

    Thank you for your comment. You may have misread the information in the list of schools. The list correctly shows that SUMI’s medium of instruction is English.

    For clarification however, I did double check and was informed that the medium of instruction from Class 1 till Class 6 is Nepali, and for the higher classes it is English.

  12. phintso tashi

    So how was August 15th this time ???
    I mean how was it ?????

    Hello everyone,
    Came across this site accidentally and my memories again freshened up. Am an ex-SUMIAN of 1996 batch(Class XII Science). I really missed chatting with frens at Damber Chowk and having hot tea at ND during foggy days. Ferrazzinis is the very place where I relax with hot cup of coffee. And for hot steaming momos, its always New Restuarant. Its been so many years now and I wonder where my frens are and what are they doing. Anyways, would love to come back one day.

    Hi everybody ,
    tripped on this site accidently and had this broad smile all the way till the end of this post chain. I love the place just the way you guys do. My maternal family is still there . Its been ages since I set my foot there but I know for sure that nothing would look changed when I go there. Its a beautiful land with beautiful people…
    Does anyone frm SAS 1990 batch remember Nurin Ishaque?

    It’s been only five years since I left Kalimpong for higher studies. The journey since then has been extremely tedious. Everywhere I go, I try to fix parallels to my lost hometown. So a particular shop on Park Street is 3C’s. Kerala’s expansive rivers are the Tista. Every cliff is the Honeymoon hill in Dr Graham’s Homes.
    Whoever said it did the right thing: you can take a person out of Kalimpong, but never Kalimpong out of him.

    Dear, kalimpong
    After a long time I got a chance to write few things about u. It’s feels realy nice to talk about u, now I’m in Singapore but I miss u n my school s.u.m.I very much. Feels just like yesterday wearing black n white feels just like yesterday going mala ground to main road with fren. Feels the pain just like yesterday got ” gauri bet” from my headmaster ( sir N R pradhan).that’s y the sir used to say one time u got ” gauri bet ” never forget in life time. I miss my school very much. Palden sir, Suva sir, kamal sir heart touchig speach ( there words) is enough to show the direction to students and some more not enough then there is still have a headmaster’s gauri bet. And it’s definetely works. My love to all the people of kalimpong.

    Miss u lov u see u soon .

    hey .. this is a brilliant site. its a good idea to compile all the info under one roof .. ease of access.
    Kalimpong is a beautiful place, its a unseen beauty. I was born n raised there, and its still has the same feel as it did yrs ago for me.. [a lot more shops n students now but it still has that air of calmness that makes it warm and welcoming] even though in the couple of yrs the political situation has been on the rocks, i believe it will one day again return to its true form…
