Lamahatta village is located at an altitude of about 5700 ft and is approximately 20 Kms from Darjeeling town. The localites are mostly Buddhist tribals like Dukpas, Sherpas and Yalmos. Lamahatta is surrounded by pine trees and offers a beautiful view of the Kanchanjungha range. The term Lamahatta is derived from 2 words, Lama meaning Monk and Hutta meaning Hut. In one word, it denotes a monk's abode.
Our homestay is located about 500 meters above the Lamahatta park just on the roadside.
