Photographer's Note

Jhalong is 103 km away from Siliguri and is 56 km from New Mal station. It is situated on the bank of the river Jaldhaka on the Indo-Bhutan border. Jhalong lies at the foothills of the Himalayas, on the way to Bindu in Kalimpong sub-division.

Accomaodation is limited - but the best option is the forest rest house, on the way to Bindu. The rest house is located adjacent to a stream called Rongbu, which is a tributary of Jaldhaka river, which forms a natural border between Bhutan abd India.

This photograph shows the bridge on Rongbu,early in the morning.
