We are doing a pretty standard trip over 9 days into Darjeeling Kalimpong and Mirik. We have heard some bad things about extreme pollution in Darjeeling. Are there any areas just outside Darjeeling city where you breathe cleaner air or should we use Kalimpong as a base or mirik. We also prefer staying in airbnb type accommodations vs hotels and even like farm stays, especially if itís a working farm for vegetation or otherwise

We visited Kalimpong-Gangtok-Mirik back in 2010.
You can read the details in the April part of my Seven weeks North-East journal.
Maybe it gives you some ideas.

You can also explore the tea-estate routes. Some good ones are Glenburn, Makaibari etc. Simple googling would throw up lots of suggestions.
