Host Info

Rabin Tamang

Lepchajagat

Mr. Rabin Tamang is a young and active host. He is attentive to guest requirement and has a smiling face at all time.

Rabin is also a driver and guide. When the pressure of tourist is not very high, he himself takes his guests on a sight-seeing tour around.

Activity

Lepchajagat is a more suitable place for sedentary traveller who wants to relax amidst nature. This lodge is an ideal place to relax. It has a large balcony and open space in front, which is a luxury in Lepchajagat as most of the other accommodations are constructed right on the main high road.

If you want to spend a more active time, your first option is to walk up the hill behind this building and just a few minutes walk will take you to the hill top. Here you can get a great panoramic view of the surrounding. The place is locally referred to as Sunrise point and there is seating arrangement for guests here. More enthusiastic people can walk down to the forest bungalow, or even a 4 km, 30 minutes hike can take you to the nearby Sukiapokhari bazaar.

Things to See

Lepchajagat is popular as a destination with great view of the Kanchenjunga massif and Darjeeling town.

The view of Darjeeling is specially mesmerising during the night when the whole city is lit. There is not much sightseeing option in the village itself. Most tourists go for sight seeing tours to nearby places such as Darjeeing, Lamahatta, Mirik etc from here.

Weather

At an altitude of about 2100 meters (6900 feet), Lepchajagat is about 100 meters higher than the height...

Orientation

Till a few years back, this was a 2 room small homestay, then came the boom in tourism in Lepchajagat. One of the few to flourish and grow with time was this Tamang family as they, in two separate buildings, came up with 15 rooms and counting.

If you are looking for the experience of a homestay, none of the accommodations in Lepchajagat will fit your bill. But if you consider this as a budget lodge, you will find this accommodation arguably the best accommodation at Lepchajagat.

The Property

This Homestay / lodge is arguably located at the most vantage point of Lepchajagat. There are several pine trees around the property and from here you can seen full Darjeeling city and Kanchenjunga view.

Food

Veg and non-veg food is available here. Food is basic and home cooked.

Do not expect anything fanciful here. Quantity is sufficient and cooking is hygienic.

Location

Lepchajagat is situated between Darjeeling and Sukhiapokhari. Our lodge is located just off the main road. The main and only parking stand of Lepchajagat is just outside the campus of the lodge.

This is the only major accommodation in Lepchjagat which offers some open space in front. Most other lodges are build right over the main road. There is great view of the mountain range and Darjeeling town from here.

Getting There

You can reach Lepchajagat either from the Darjeeling side or from the Mirik side. Most tourists come here from the Darjeeling side as the distance through this side is shorter if you are travelling from other popular destinations such as Darjeeling, Kalimpong or Sikkim. Even from NJP rail station or Dooars, this route is shorter. You first have to reach Ghoom junction, which is about 11 kms before Darjeeling. From Ghoom you take a west bound road and drive for about 8 kms to reach here.

If you are travelling via Mirik, you can take the alternative route. This route is especially interesting to many tourists as it passes not only through the tourist hamlet of Mirik but also through places such as Pashupati boarder, Simana view point and Sukiapokhari. From Bagdogra airport this would be a shorter route.

Nearby Places

Sukiapokhari, just 4 kms away is the nearest market. Maneybhanjan, the starting point for Sandakphu trek, is further 7 kms from Sukiapokhari. Jorepokhari view point and Shiv temple is also in the same area, couple of kms further from Sukiapokhari. Mirik is 26 kms from Sukiapokhari and 30 kms from Lepchajagat.

In the opposite direction, the east bound road from Lepchajagat reaches Ghoom / Jorebungalow area about 8 kms away. From here you can visit Darjeeling (11 kms) or Rangaroon, Dawaipani, Lamahatta etc which are well within 10 kms from Ghoom.
