MIRIK

 

This is a tourist spot located in the hills of Darjeeling district in West Bengal, India. It is the headquarters of Mirik Subdivision. The name Mirik comes from the Lepcha words Mir-Yok meaning "place burnt by fire".

Mirik has become a tourist destination for its climate, natural environment and easy accessibility. The centre of all attraction is Semandu Leak, surrounded by a garden named Savitri Pushpa Udaya (after Savitri Thapa, a martyr soldier of INA) on one side and pine trees on the other, linked together by an arching footbridge called Indreni Pool (named after Indreni Thapa, a martyr soldier of INA). A 3.5-km-long road encircles the lake and is used for walks with the view of Kanchenjunga on the far horizon. Boating on the quaint shikaras and horse riding are available.
