About Siliguri

The second largest city in West Bengal, Siliguri lies in the shadows of the mighty Himalayas, in a narrow strip of land just 40 km wide at its broadest section often referred to as the Chicken's Neck. Its strategic location makes it the main gateway to the north-eastern states, the city also boasts lush green environs, interspersed with tea plantations, rolling hills and meandering rivers, as well as a pleasant climate through most of the year.

Siliguri's modern history began in the 19th century when the British East India Company constructed a railway line linking the city with Kolkata, which was extended to Darjeeling in 1881. With the establishment of a rail link, the area's economy began to grow and Siliguri became known for the four ‘T's: tea, timber, tourism and transport.
