Question Why different places called miles in Darjeeling?


New member
I have a question. Why is different places are called in miles? In Darjeeling, I have heard the name of a place like, 2 mile, 3mile, 12 mile, 5 mile, 7th mile and so on. Doesn't the place have a good alternative name or the real name of the place is always in miles? I am just curious to know.
