One of the most untouched parts of the Darjeeling Himalayan foothills, Sitong is a treasure yet to be discovered. This beautiful Lepcha village lies is a valley crisscrossed by a rivulet (Khola) and guarded by lush green hills. The whole village turns orange during the winter. Visiting Sitong is like time travelling – there’s a bamboo bridge, a church, some winding village paths skirting through orange orchards and few meandering streams and a rivulet, which the locals love to call Riyang River. The church guesthouse has been renovated with modern facilities to accommodate guests.
