Jorpokhri, a Famous Offbeat in Darjeeling

Jorpokhri

19 km from Darjeeling on a hilltop near Lepchajagat Jorpokhri is situated at an altitude of 7,400 ft. Jorpokhri is located 2 km above Sukhiapokhri. This 2 km is shrouded with virid thick woods consisting Juniper and Pine trees. This is a part of Senchal wildlife sanctuary. The word 'Jorpokhri' means twin ponds or twin lakes. The boundaries of lakes are concreted and decorated with seats. On the water you may find white swans are swimming. In the middle of the lake a model of huge snake is erected along with a fountain. From the northern side of lake the spectacular view of snow-capped Himalayas including Mt. Kanchenjunga will surely mesmerise you. From the other side the landscape of Darjeeling will left you speechless. The best time to visit Jorpokhri is during October to March. If you are a wildlife enthusiast you may try during monsoons as the chance of spotting highly endangered amphibian Salamander (resembles with lizard) will be much higher. If you are spending a night then during afternoon or next day morning a jungle trail amidst green will rejuvenate you.
