2 of our friends want to visit Kolkata and surrounding areas for 2 weeks next January 18th.
they want to do maximum overnight or 2 night trips outside kolkata
PLease suggest where can we take them? overnight stays need to have good accomodation and offcourse western toilets. Money might not be too big deal for them.

Secondly, Darjeeling and Kalimpong and other areas how cold or not for travel? is the weather generally sunny? how about other places like dooars etc?
Please help us to make an itinerary for them

thank you

What about Shantiniketan? I found it to be a very interesting town with a lot of charm. The Tagore museum and university, gardens and terracotta temples make it a good 2 day trip. Itís a pleasant place to walk around. Havenít been there for quite a few years but there was a good range of accommodation when we visited.

If you head to Kalimpong make sure your accommodation is properly heated! I found it very cold overnight in January in Kalimpong and our accommodation had minimal heating.

We stayed at Bohdi Tree in Kolkata and really liked it - http://www.bodhitreekolkata.com/. I loved Kolkata - much to see. Would love to get back there one day.

We were in Darjeeling several years ago - in January. It was very cold so be sure your friends have proper clothing. Our hotel had a fireplace, which was so nice and cozy and much needed! We also went to Sikkim on that trip and out to Tsomgo Lake. Really such a beautiful part of India.

If you want to enjoy the hill area and the cool whether as well as the natural beauty of Himalaya. North sikim will be best place for you. Try to search in net about north sikim , yamtham vally , 0 point border with china, you can feel heven of earth if you visit the north sikim 0 point,
I shall suggest you should no visit Darjiling Sikim will be better .
