Things to See

A day tour may be conducted in different directions depending on the time you have in hand. Our Homestay at Ghalaytar Sitong is located centrally. You can travel in three directions from here.

The Eastbound road from our eco-resort at Ghalaytar will take you to Namthing Pokhari about 4 km away. One km further away is the Ahal Dara viewpoint offering a mesmerizing view of surrounding mountains. Further 3 km drive will take you to Latpanchar, a birding hotspot. From our resort to Latpanchar is about 20 minutes drive. Tour to the westbound road from Ghalaytar travels through a long ridge that connects to Bagora 12 km away. From Bagora you can visit Chatakpur (10 km) or go to Darjeeling (21 km). So Darjeeling is just 33 km (1.5 Hours) drive away. The north bound road takes you on a downhill tour. The area is famous for Sitong orange orchards. Further downhill you may visit Sitong Church and continue to drive downhill for about 6 kms from our Homestay to reach Jogighat. This is a picnic spot for locals over river Riyang. Drive uphill for another 5 kms to reach Mangpu, a place made famous by Rabindranath tagore.

Ghalaytar is in Upper Sittong with great views of the Kanchenjunga massif. Also the place is quite close to Latpanchar and Namthing Pokhari area.

If your dream vacation includes a wish to watch the mighty Kanchenjunga from your wooden cabin in a remote hilly village homestay, yet to stay within a comfortable distance of the major towns of North Bengal such as Kurseong and Darjeeling, your search ends here. Come to Humro Home Ghalaytar in Upper Sitong, Kurseong division.

The Property

The new accommodation was constructed in 2017. There are 4 wooden cottages adjacent to one another. The rooms are large with modern amenities. Large window offers grand view of the majestic mountain. There is a large veranda in front of the rooms. The toilet and the rooms are fitted with latest and best material. Arguably among the Sitong accommodations, this one is the best available.
There is a seating area as well as dining hall in the eco-resort. There is separate room for drivers accommodation at our Sitong village homestay. Free car parking is also available. Behind the Humro Home Ghalaytar there is a large hilly area where adventure activities such as rock climbing etc. can be organised. Also the area is quite beautiful and can be visited for a leisurely walk.

The exterior/interior


Our Homestay is located within 2 hours drive from NJP rail station and just 35 km from Darjeeling town. Ghaleytar is in Sitong village near Kurseong, in Darjeeling district.

The Sitong homestay is situated at an altitude of about 4500 feet or about 1350 meters. It is about 500 meters from “Mana” crossing at the upper ridges of Sitong hill.

Getting There

From NJP / Bagdogra drive through the National Highway 10 connecting North Bengal with Sikkim.

As you drive along the hill with Teesta on your right, you will find two roads going uphill at your left. One is at a place called Kalijhora (about 35 km from NJP) and the other one is at a place known as Birik Dara (5 km further down the road). You may take either of the roads and drive uphill to reach Mana. From Mana take the downhill road towards your right to reach our Sitong Homestay 500 meters ahead. From NJP to Ghalaytar via Kalijhora is 54 km and through Birik is about 5 km extra.

About Rooms

  • There are altogether 4 rooms in the cottage-like building. The rooms are all wood panel and carpet. The large rooms all have attached toilet with western commode and geyser. All rooms have great Mountain View in front.
