If you are thinking of staying in one of the smallest villages in India with a fabulous view of Mt. Kanchenjungha and the snaking Teesta River, then keep Ramdhura in your itinerary. Ramdhura, truly commands some of the best postcard views of the Eastern Himalayas – the white goddess, Mt. Kanchenjungha stands amidst the expansive slopes of lush green mountains and the mighty River Teesta hurdles through the gorges below. You can enjoy this panorama from your homestay’s balcony while sipping your cup of Darjeeling tea. You can trek along the slopes of the surrounding pine forests, enjoy bird watching and visit few local attractions like Hanuman Tok (viewpoint) and Mahadev Dham Temple. If you are fond of adventure sports like Paragliding, then our homestays at Ramdhura can arrange it too.
