Situated at an altitude of 10,074 feet above sea level Tonglu lies on the eminence of the Singalila Range and is a preferred destination for trekkers on the way to Sandakphu. It is a 11km trek from Maneybhanjan, the last police station in Darjeeling.
After Tonglu the trek route ascends steeply to Sandakphu and winds through the pine and rhododendron forests. Nestled on a summit close to the Indo-Nepal frontier, Tonglu commands a fine view of the Nepalese Valleys and of the plains of North Bengal, with the snow fed Tista on the east and Kosi on the west with a network of streams and smaller rivers between them.
From Tonglu a magnificent view of Kanchanjangha Mass is visible over the undulating slopes of green hills. Tonglu is a miniature form of Sandakphu as far as the view of snow ranges is concerned. Watching the sunrise over the snow ranges from the trekkers' hut in Tonglu is a memorable experience.
