Imagine sipping a cup of tea at an altitude of 6,000 ft in a village of not more than 24 families and that too in the middle of a jungle. This is what our Sillery Homestay is all about.
You wake up to the sounds of birds chirping to a tune of a new day, a sunrise right before your eyes with Mt.Kunchenjunga on your left; all as a part of an alarm system that nature has devised for you.
A hike for about an hour from the nearest metaled road or a drive for 30 minutes through a cobbled stone road reaches you to Sillery Gaon from Pedong.
Renu didi and her family will be your hosts at Sillery Goan. The rooms come with basic necessities and furnishings, with clean surroundings and an attached bath and toilet. You will be served wholesome home cooked meals comprising of vegetarian to non vegetarian delicacies through the expert hands of your hostess. The food will be cooked entirely on firewood and if you would like to, you may also have a taste of our popular ‘Tongba’. It’s a drink made from millet or maize served in a bamboo cask, with a bamboo straw.
The best part about where you will spend a night is that, in this area, this house is on the highest point giving you a complete view of the rest of 23 houses and their daily activities!
Short Hikes from Sillery will take you to
Ramitey : longest view of River Teesta with approximately 14 turns
Tinchuley : a lone peak offering a 360 angle view of the Himalayas and surrounding mountains
