Mirik - Largest Supplier of Oranges in West Bengal

This new Hill Resort, Mirik, is increasing becoming popular day by day among the tourists. It is situated at an altitude of about 1750 metres or 5800 ft. and has a population of about 20,000. The climate is pleasant throughout the year.

Mirik is an excellent picnic spot, and Kanchenjunga is visible. The climate is congenially cool and tourists can have a pleasant sight seeing. The 335 acre site for the new tourist-resort is shaped like a tiny valley. Within the valley, there is a level stretch of five acres, rare in the hills of Darjeeling. Along the west of this flat ground, there is a natural lake formation fed with perennial springs and rain water. Now, that the water here is impounded by construction of a weir, there is a 1.25 km long Sumendu Lake. The level stretch forms eastern bank of the lake, the western bank being hill-slopes covered by rich forest of about ten thousand "Cryptomaria japanica" trees.

Now Mirik receives day as well as long or short stay visitors. A garden has been laid our on the eastern bank, a 3.5 km circular foot walk has been completed, and there is foot bridge over the lake. Nature lovers may spend a day or two at Mirik profitable. They can walk around the lake or along the numerous walks in the heavily forested ridges on the western bank; view of sunrise or sunset from "Rameetay Dara" which means "Entertainment Hill" would all go to make a fine holiday. Visitors may enjoy the orange trees at Soureni, a short distance from Mirik. One will notice labourers carrying huge baskets ("Doko" - local dialect) on their back with the help of "Namlo" or rope woven to carry load on the back which rests on the head,loaded with fresh oranges and they are really juicy, not like those you get in the plains. It will be a refreshing experience.

For rest and food, the "Day-Centre" at the eastern bank has a comfortable lounge. Tea, coffee and snacks are available throughout the day. Visitors may also lunch here. Boating, fishing, beautification and overnight accommodation etc. are available and ready for the visitors. There are several moderately priced hotels to stay overnight near the lake.
