Rangit Valley

Rangit Valley sprawls across Darjeeling District of West Bengal. The Darjeeling - Rangit Valley Ropeway, also known as North point Passenger Ropeway, is the first passenger ropeway in India and it links Darjeeling with Singla Bazaar. The Rangit valley is separated from the Teesta Valley, across the middle, by a north-south ridge of lesser elevation. Near the Darjeeling - Rangit Valley Ropeway is the famous Padmaja Naidu Himalayan Zoological Park. Rangit Valley is an ideal place for watching beautiful butterflies.

The nearest airport is Civil Enclave Bagdogra, 96 km away from Darjeeling and the nearest railhead is New Jalpaiguri Junction Railway Station.
