Surreal Nilgiri and Dreamlike Darjeeling

People say that the picturesque Nilgiri at Bandarban in Bangladesh is surreal and the heaven on Earth. The clouds touch down to the Earth in this place! Being in the Nilgiri Resort is awesome, as if ‘being above the clouds!’ since Nilgiri is surrounded by the hills and the clouds most of the time.

It is a fabulous and aesthetically pleasing breathing space to enjoy the serenity of the mother Earth. Those who want to meditate and indulge with ultimate relaxation can book cottages at the Nilgiri resort. This is a place for unwinding far away from the city’s hustle and bustle.

Want to embrace the clouds? Nilgiri in Bangladesh is the ideal place. Many compare this place to Darjeeling in India. Nilgiri is located in Thansi Upazilla in Bandarban district which is about 48 km away from the town of Bandarban. There is a neat resort at the top of the hills hosted by Bandarban Officers’ Club, which is a sister concern of Bangladesh Army. Anybody wanting to visit the resort has to take permission from the Army.

Here is a video on this beautiful heaven on Earth! This amazing video has been uploaded by Mr. Pavel Shahriyar in 2010. Enjoy this video that is bound to give you a truly magical experience!

Like Nilgiri, there is another place that I know in the world where the clouds touch down the Earth. This is Darjeeling in India. I went to Darjeeling in 2007 with my travel mates. We went there by road via Burimari Point in Bangladesh.

Here are some of the pictures that I had clicked of Darjeeling during our trip in 2007:

This is a picture of the bluish mountains of Darjeeling.


Here is the picture of the train of the Darjeeling Himalayan Railway, also popularly known as the ‘toy train’. The railway basically follows the tract of the Hill Cart Road. This railway has a very special place in the Indian popular culture as so many popular films in India had portrayed this railway.

I had clicked this picture while the train was plying on the hills:


Here is an extremely popular Indian song ’Meri Sapnon Ki Raani Kab Aaye Gi Tu’ from the film Aaradhna. Enjoy this beautifully melodious song sung by legendary Indian vocalist Kishore Kumar (with English subtitles). This song was pictured in Darjeeling. Many YouTube channels have uploaded this song. Among the all the uploads, the only video of the song with English subtitles was uploaded by bollyoldisgold channel.

You can take pleasure of watching this splendid short video of the beautiful Kanchenjunga peak of the Himalayas in Darjeeling, India. Lying on the eastern border of Nepal with India, Kanchenjunga is the third highest peak in the world.  The video credit goes to Mr. Chandan Prakash, who has uploaded this in his YouTube channel.

Like Darjeeling Himalayan Railway train, Kanchenjunga Himalayan peaks also have a very popular place in Bengali Indian popular culture.
