Gurdum, nestled in the lap of the Himalayas is a small hamlet located in the Singalila National Park. Located at 8000 ft above sea level, the coniferous branches and the rhododendrons welcome you with their nutty smell and bright colours. Gurdum is a settlement of 25 houses scattered along a terraced valley enclosed by the Singalila forest in West Bengal. A village in the Darjeeling district that can only be reached on foot, Gurdum is frequented by trekkers on the Sandakphu trail. Its 150-odd residents have modified their homes into dormitories for weary travelers.
