1.Dow Hill School

The most famous kurseong tourist spot worldwide is Dow hill school. The school was established by Britishers and has a golden history. But currently, it is famous for its haunted profile.

Located in the Dow hill area this school is an example of beautiful architecture. The way towards the school is isolated from human activities completely. The lonely pine-shredded street is more beautiful amidst rain or mist. I didn't feel anything like haunted here. Don't know why this gossip is going viral.
