Info

Lamahatta is located at an altitude of about 5,700 feet and at a distance of 23kms from Darjeeling hill town. Although it's just a small village where farming and cattle rearing are the main source of livelihood, it's well connected by the Darjeeling-Kalimpong state highway. The main inhabitants here are tribes like Sherpas, Yalmos, Tamangs, Bhutias and Dukpas. They have all come together to join hands  to create an eco tourism spot.
Lamahatta has a vast stretch of beautiful manicured garden has been created along the slope of the hill and under the dense dhupi and pine forest. This is the 'Roadside Garden'. From the homestays, you just walk across the road to the entrance of this garden. The garden is full of seasonal flowering plants including white and other colorful orchids. 

Only about 87 tea gardens in the world have the right to produce tea that can use the Darjeeling name and logo. All of these tea gardens can be found in a very small area: only about 19000 hectares spread over 7 main valleys in just one district in the state of West Bengal in India.
This very beautiful, very unique, very lush and green region lies in the hilly beginnings of the North Eastern Himalayas. Here, 4000-6000 feet above sea level, the perennially snow covered Kanchenjunga—the 3rd highest mountain peak in the Himalayas—dominates a landscape that is breathtakingly misty, mystic and absolutely magical.
An always crisp weather; pure and clean air; ice-sparkling waterfalls; innumerable clear mountain streams and a sun that pours liquid gold onto the fertile and luxuriant hills—these are the vital ingredients that make Darjeeling a tea without equal; and a taste that cannot be replicated anywhere else on Earth.
Takdah Cantonment, as the name signifies, was a British cantonment in the pre-independence era. The beautiful structures erected during the British era are the living proof of the story untold. This cantonment is filled with cedar trees and offers a panoramic view of the nearby locations.Takdah is close to coniferous forests where small treks and strolls are possible. Takdah Cantonment has an orchid centre with a wide variety of rare Himalayan orchids . This center has been the favourite of tourists visiting Takdah. The nearest tea gardens are Rungli, Giele and Teesta Valley tea gardens. The main junction of Takdah is called Dara Dokan. A weekly market, held every Thursday, is a sight worth watching as people from all the nearby villages come to shop their weekly needs.
