Rural Destination Darjeeling, Off Beat Destination, Pine forest, Rural Destination, Rural tourism, and Rural Village
At an altitude of 5100 ft in Darjeeling district , Takdah is an offbeat destination known for its stays, homely food and untouched beauty. Takdah or Tukdah literally means ‘mist’ or fog in Lepcha language. True to its name, Takdah, a former British cantonment area near Darjeeling remains covered with mist for most of the time. Think of a dreamy place where the sun and clouds play hide and seek with glee and mist descends at its own will. There are foggy nature trails, blooming orchids, sounds of chirping birds and majestic mountain views. Takdah is all these and much more. This serene destination also remains quite cooler than the surrounding areas. The best part is you can also visit other offbeat destinations like Tinchuley and Lamahatta from here. So if you are looking for some offbeat weekend destination in Darjeeling, Takdah might just be the right place!
