Kalimpong (Nepali: कालिम्पोङ) is a hill station nestled in the Shiwalik Hills (or Lower Himalaya) in the Indian state of West Bengal. It is located at an average elevation of 1,250 metres (4,101 ft). The town is the headquarters of the Kalimpong district. Kalimpong is known for its educational institutions many of which were established during the British Raj. It used to be a gateway in the trade between Tibet and India prior to China's annexation of Tibet and the Sino-Indian War. The Indian Army's 27 Mountain Division is located on the outskirts of the town. Kalimpong and neighbouring Darjeeling were major centres calling for a separate en:Gorkhaland state in the 1980s.
