Humro Home Sunrise View Point is a Homestay located not in Latpanchar village but about 3 km away from it. The place is known as Ahal Dara and it is technically in the Selphu Sittong Khasmahal area.
The main attraction of the place lies in the great view the place offers. Dara in the local language means hilltop and Ahaldara offer almost a 360-degree view of surrounding mountains and hills. You can see Kurseong, Darjeeling, and Kalimpong hills from here as well as river Teesta, the plains of Dooars and Terai, and of course the Kanchenjunga massif. All with the comfort of staying in a nice cozy homestay. There is also a small tea plantation owned by our Homestay owner next to the village.
The path through the tea bushes, with the mesmerizing view all along, makes for a great leisurely hike, which is the chief form of activity here. Apart from this, you may wish to venture towards Sittong for some sightseeing. Latpanchar is home to the Rufus Neck Hornbill and other different species of Himalayan birds, so birdwatching is also a popular pastime.
There is a lot of open space in front of the cottages and once there, you will have your breath taken from you at the view. The valley falls away to one side, you can see Darjeeling on the left and Kalimpong in front across the valley. The Teesta river meanders across the foothills. At night, you can see the twinkling lights of these towns and the numerous villages dotting the hillsides. Some of the lights are moving - these are the occasional vehicles traveling through the hills.
