Mirik is a popular tourist spot located in the hills of Darjeeling district in West Bengal. Situated at an elevation of 1495 m, the name of this place is derived from the word Mir-Yok, which is a Lepcha word that means ‘a place burnt by fire’. There are several tea gardens and orchards in the region of Mirik, which is also the biggest producer of oranges in West Bengal.

The major attraction of Mirik is the Sumendu Lake. Sumendu Lake is an artificial lake that has forested ridges on all sides, with garden on one side and pine trees on the other side. Both sides are connected with an arched footbridge called Indreni Pull (Rainbow Bridge) and a road stretching about 3.5 km encircles the lake. This road provides a view of Mount Kanchenjunga. There are facilities for boating on shikaras in the lake.

Located on the southern most part of the lake is the town of Krishnanagar. Within short distance of the town is the Bokar Gompa, home of the Mahayana monks. There are three temples built separately dedicated to the gods of Lord Shiva, Hanuman and Kali Mata located on the western part of the region. Located on the western bank of Lake Sumendu is the Singla Devi Mandir.

Tibetan Buddhist Monastery, Homedara Siva Mandir, Mirik Busty Orange Garden, Ramneety Dara and Rajdhap are the attractions here. The Kawlay Dara View Point is a popular sunset and sunrise point where a clear view of the snow capped mountain ranges can be seen.

There are in eight tea estates surrounding the region of Mirik and out of them Thurbo Tea Estate, which is just 2 km away is the most popular one. About 50 km from Mirik is the hill station of Kurseong, which is known for its orchids and laid back lifestyle.
