During the British Colonial period, Kalimpong proximity to Nathula and Jelepla passes made it an important trading outpost for India and Tibet. The clinching feature of the quiet hamlet was its proximity to the Silk Road. This began a revolutionary commercial and economic prosperity, attracting trading and business population from the plains, Nepal and Bhutan. This ultimately led to the establishment of several heritage educational institutions that the thriving town is known for today.
The multi-cuisine restaurant Silk Route is named after the game changing Silk Road that has created noteworthy milestones and historically valuable landmarks in the hill station. Indulge in some tasty delicacies at our restaurant in Kalimpong.
