Perched at an elevation of 5800 ft above sea-level, 32 km far from Darjeeling Tinchuley is an off beat hamlet. It lies at the end of an enthralling climb through pine forests and winding hill roads between Darjeeling and Kalimpong. The name derives from the appearance of three mountain tops on the flank of a village resembling the ‘Tin’ (three) ‘Chulhey’ (stoves). It is a clean, green, beautiful and untouched tourist destination. This small villlage of a few families look sleepy and quiet amidst the pine forests, marigolds and endless orchards. Amazingly, the geographical diversity of the village is not exhausted by this: the rivers Teesta and Ranjeet also intersect quite close to it. All of this contributes to Tinchuley’s abundant natural beauty. While famous for its tea plantations and fresh fruit orchards like Darjeeling, Tinchuley is, in addition, a quieter and more obscure place – there’s a sense of peace pervading the atmosphere that’s otherwise lacking in its busier counterparts. In Tinchuley, one can engage in rock climbing, trekking, and sightseeing, all against a scenic green mountains cape that seems like something out of a film set. With an economy that started thriving through the involvement of World Wildlife Federation (WWF) in modernizing the place’s agriculture and branching its production off into floriculture, sericulture, and organic products took place, Tinchuley began growing in popularity as an ideal tourist destination. Tranquil surroundings, comfortable rooms, good food and the breathtaking vista. If one wants to get away from the urban din, this must be the place.
