Spirits of the Dow Hill of DarjeelingDarjeeling is a famous hill station of West Bengal. People from all over the world visit Darjeeling in order to witness its natural beauty. But, what are hidden behind this amazing beauty are the haunted places. Darjeeling is also famous for the numerous haunted places it hosts. Dow Hill is one such haunted spot located in Darjeeling. Let us know how eerie this place is.
Visit to Victoria Boys High SchoolIt was only during my visit to this famous school of Kurseong, Darjeeling that I came to know that this place is haunted. This school is nearly 100 years old and located in the hilly area of Kurseong. This school is into existence since 1879 and is functional even today. There are many stories building up circling this school. All the haunted events take place during the holiday season.
When I visited this school, the guard in charge told me about some of his experience. It was only during the holiday periods when he heard the same noise of boys loitering in the corridor. When I met some local people they said that they have seen a boy standing in the windows staring at them during the holidays. These people also said that they have seen a headless boy roaming near the school premises. When I asked the school administration they said that an accidental or natural death was never reported in the school campus. Then what is the spirit that haunts this place even today?
Forest Surrounding Dow HillThis forest surrounding Dow Hill is also haunted so I decided to take a toll of the place. People say that when they walk in the forest alone often they have felt someone following them. Although I didn’t face any situation like this may be because I was not alone or may be because I was not that lucky to meet someone from ‘that’ world!
Visit to the Road of DeathThe road leading to Forest office from Dow Hill is known as the Death road. I was taking a toll in this road when I met a wood cutter. He said that he came across a chilling experience in the forest while working. He saw a headless young boy walking in the roads and when he thought of following it, the boy disappeared.
There is an uncanny feeling that will accompany you each time you visit this place. This was even experienced by me. When I visited death road then even I felt the presence of some evil forces. The local people also said that they have witnessed a woman in grey clothes running frantically in the forest in search of something. Screaming of children and woman are often heard from the forest. It is advisable by the local people not to visit this place after sunset.
What you get to see when you visit this place!!!The most beautifully surrounded place of West Bengal is Darjeeling. You can get to witness the best scenic beauty once you visit Dow Hill. It is known as one of the most naturally decorated places but also known as one of the most haunted places. When you visit Dow Hill then you will get to see the peaceful ambience of the place. You will find a different peace of mind in this hilly area. But the ghostly stories surrounding this place will definitely make sure that you have goose bumps.
A limited stay is advisable in this place but I will advise everyone to visit this place once in a while. If you are lucky enough you will get to witness one headless boy at least during your stay and if not then don’t worry may be something better is waiting for you in the corner of death road.
