Lamahatta is a small village on the Peshok road, about 20 kms from Darjeeling. The Peshok road is the one connecting Darjeeling with Kalimpong town. The peaceful village first came into prominence when the tourism department started developing eco-tourism infrastructure here in collaboration with the local villagers. Today a number of private accommodations have also come up in the area.

Attractions

Walking through coniferous forest trail, spending time watching the mountain range high above, looking for an elusive bird whose song keeps your mesmerised. If this is your idea of a holiday, Lamahatta is the right place for you. There is not much tourism activity around here. Just a peaceful existence with nature. You can walk to the local market and mix with the local people. Most of the people of the village are from Lepcha and other tribal community who were the original inhabitants of the hilly land. These are ever smiling and welcoming people whose hospitality you will remember for a long time to come.

Around Lamahatta within a short drive you can reach a number of other tourist destinations such as Darjeeling (20 kms), Kalimpong (35 kms), Teesta Bazar (20 kms) or Teenchuley (12 kms).

Getting There

From Bagdogra Airport or NJP Station either you can drive through the Darjeeling route (National Highway 55) or the Kalimpong – Sikkim route (National Highway 31A). If you follow the first route, take a right turn from Ghum (65 kms) and drive for another 8 kms to reach Lamahatta. If you are driving through the Bengal Sikkim Highway 31A, follow river Teesta till you reach Tista bazar (60 kms) then take a left turn to reach Lamahatta 10 kms ahead.
