Kalimpong

A history of Kalimpong

Kalimpong has come a long way since 1865 when it was just a small hamlet of 3 to 4 families having few cows. At present it has a population of about 70,000.Prior to 1864 the information cannot be authenticated as accounts are contradictory and vary from source to source. Due to this reason even the etyonology of its very name Kalimpong is not clear and has various theories. From the Lepcha sources, “Kalenpung” means Ridges Where We Play. In Tibetan translation it means The Stockade of Kings Ministers, and the hill people also call “Kalimpong” as “Kalibong” meaning “Black Spurs”. However the Lepcha translation has found acceptance as the tribesman organized field sports and not engage in agricultural pursuits.
