How To Reach Mahakaleshwar Temple in Darjeeling

This Temple is located at the top of the observatory hill. How to reach the Mahakaleshwar temple in Darjeeling? The best approach is to get to the Mall Road. On getting to the Chowrasta Mall; the best bet is to enter the road from the right-hand side. That done, you have to keep your eyes fixed on the hill ahead of you.

It is instructive to tell you what to expect around the vicinity of the temple. The path to the place is infested with monkeys who are on the look out for food. If you are carrying a food item; you have to be extra careful or else you risk an attack.

The fact that the monkeys do not know what is in your bag may make them presume it contains food items and you may be at the risk of losing your bag. The watchword here is carefulness. If you are, the monkeys are not harmful.

When you trek within a hundred meters or so, you will find a flight of steps going uphill. This is the path that will lead you to the Temple. As you progress through the steps, it will give way to a narrow winding path.

If you are more used to the plains, then be prepared for a challenge of walking up to the mountain top. If you are a first timer, it will definitely be difficult; but you do not have to shelve the idea of visiting this Temple because there are provisions for you on the way.

Number one, the journey is not all that long. The benefits you will get at the at this sacred place of devotion makes the pains that you pass through on the way up to pale into insignificance.

There are benches provided along the way located at strategic points. You can sit down and relax along the way if you cannot make the entire journey at a stretch.

Be prepared for a 15-minute uphill walk to the mountain top where the temple sits on. Aside from the Monkeys that will want to snatch food from intending devotes along the route; the cruise to this temple is fun. The elements to make it pleasurable are there along the hilly route.

      • Trip to Sikkim - Gangtok - Darjeeling

        Dipendar and Rajat(Travel agents from Himavat destination) were both very good coordinators and were very helpful whenever we wanted clarification before and during the trip. However, one thing i noticed was that they do not send the pictures of the hotels they are suggesting which could create confusion when we google it and see the condition of the rooms. I personally had agreed for a very bad hotel in Lava, West Bengal. When i googled the hotel name, the pictures i saw may have been from some other hotel which is why i agreed. So please ask the travel agent to share pics of the hotel before you book. Having said that, Rajat agreed to book another room immediately. I have to say that the patience of these agents was commendable. Thank you for making our trip great.

      • Trip to Bhutan

        it was an amazing trip. The day we reached phuntsholing was unfortunately a holiday. Eventhough the travel agency managed it well by taking us to the local site seeing in West Bengal and rescheduled all tue hotels. Bhutan was an amazing experience. The staybat thimphu was not good as expected. but it was average. Overall a memorable Trip and the driver was amazing.

        Sikkim driver service was too good. But West Bengal driver service was too bad. He was not on time and made us to rush here & there for flight. We were about to miss flight from Bagdogra due to him. Nathula and zero point visit

      • Trip to Sikkim - Gangtok - Darjeeling

        Overall organization was good , not perfect . It was a little inconvenient . Sikkim was too good . But west Bengal part of journey was absolutely pathetic . Hotel was booked a super sketchy area. Food was bad . So not good at all. These agency should pay more attention to their customer's hospitality because any place's goodness will be reflected through the hospitality provided. 1 Sikkim , nothing has been this better. Totally enjoyed.

      • Trip to Sikkim - Gangtok - Darjeeling

        All Over very good. Enjoyed every bit of it. Mr.Arbin took care of all at every place through out. Drivers of West Bengal were bit arrogant in their communication and behavior. But Mr.Arbin has supported all through. The only thing I was really upset with Mr.Arbin and IAMHIMALAYAS travelers was things were not communicated with the drivers and drivers vendors. Like Parking Fees were included in the package and were paid by me before the tour began. But with all drivers I need to communicate with them regarding parking amount and need to arrange for a call with Mr.Arbin. All the places visited are my best memory. Playing with Snow was ultimate of them all.

      • Trip to Sikkim - Gangtok - Darjeeling

        The Trip was for 6n/7d to Gangtok-Kalimpong-Pelling-Darjeeling. The trip was well organised but the only thing which should have been better is traveling from one city to other. Gangtok to Kalimpong was longer than Pelling. Also Kalimpong was in West Bengal. The traveling was from Sikkim to West bengal then again Sikkim and then back to West Bengal. The hotels provided was good. Only in Kalimpong the hotel was not good. Bad odour water throughout. The trip went well until Darjeeling where the driver showed spots in a hurry and most of the spots as running spots where there was a sightseeing. Overall it was good experience.

        Trip2Hill representative very friendly and cooperative. All confirmed arrangement done.Always available for any information required. However the taxi drivers were not acting as guide as he should be to a tourist under him. The view of Sun Rise and its rays on Kanchenjunga before sun is visible was marvelous on 14 th Nov 16. However worst road ever seen after Sikkim border in West Bengal area while going from Pelling to Darjeeling.

      • Trip to Sikkim - Gangtok - Darjeeling

        Myself and my wife booked for 9D/8N Sikkim/Darjeeling/Kalimpong trip. We selected We care Holidays as it provided us the least cost. First and foremost thanks to Madan Sir of We Care Holidays as he provided excellent support to us throughout our trip. Madan and Ajay provided us good drivers and they were gracious to provide us a KUV for our trip. (We had different drivers for sikkim and west bengal.) Commitment of Madan was excellent and experienced it many times. I share a personal friendship with him. Hotels were good and safe for women/family travellers. Food at hotels too were good. I recommend we care holidays for sikkim/Darjeeling/Kalimpong trips and looking forward to do a North Sikkim trip early next year. Watching beautiful Mt.Kanchenjunga from hotel in Pelling

        Yes Tourism.. has done good co-ordination during Trip. Over all Trips is good. however, please consider at least 3 star hotels only while in Sikkim and west bengal as lower hotel facilities are below average. .
