SILLERYGAON

Its a small paradise free from all the technology. Beautiful place from where you can see the Himalayan range including mount Kanjanjunga and mount Annapurna. Other attractions are Damsung fort and Ramitey View point. Stayed with Youth hostel association of India. Beautiful people and the best place on earth to stay.  Sillery Gaon or the New Darjeeling, as it is called locally is located at the end of around 5 km kutcha road originating from Algarah (Pedong). Though, initially the gravelled road will put the travellers on tenterhooks, after reaching Sillery, you will forget the hardship of the road.

Nestled among the lush green hills and Forest of Sillery Gaon, calm and peaceful setting in the lap of nature far from the hustle and bustle of city life. Admist many towering mountains where magical mists like divine dragon rise from the deep forests, here the earth is an up-child heaven.

Sillery Gaon is a small hamlet located close to Pedong in West Bengal. Nestled at a height of 6000 ft, total of about 30 families live in this village. The place offers magnificent views of Mt. Kanchendzonga along with other peaks like Jumulhari and Fish Tail. The ranges are rewardly experienced with the effects of colour owing to dispersion of light. Every house in this village has a flower garden in its front. In the distance one can see the Sikkimese town of Namchi and the River Teesta flowing through the curves of the hills. There is neither electricity nor market in Sillery Gaon. One can visit Pedong and its attractions from here by car.
