Info

SITTONG “ The Orange Village “ situated in deep valley beside Riyang River . It is just 76 km away from New Jalpaiguri (NJP) railway station / Siliguri / Bagdogra Airport (IXB).One of the most untouched parts of the Darjeeling Himalayan foothills, Sittong is a treasure trove yet to be discovered. This little picturesque Lepcha village lies is a valley crisscrossed by a rivulet (Khola) and guarded by lush green hills. Every house in Sittong has a garden and every garden has orange trees. The whole village turns onto yellow during the winter. Visiting Sittong is like time travelling – there’s a bamboo bridge, a church, some winding village paths skirting through orange orchards and few meandering streams and a rivulet, which the locals love to call Riyang River.

You can visit the local church. Previously, there used to be a 100-year old Bamboo church here but now a new building has come up. There is a Bamboo Bridge, which you would love to see wobbling when someone crosses. But when you are in Sittong, there is one thing you cannot miss doing – “Enjoying Oranges.” When the oranges bloom, the whole village is covered in a hue of orange. You can also spend time walking all around the village along the farms or sit idle on the banks of Riyang river and watch the Lepcha kids returning home. In Sittong, you would love doing “nothing.” The house of Rabindranath Tagore at Mongpoo is just 8 kms away and Latpanchar – the highest point in Mahananda Wildlife Sanctuary is 13 km from Sittong. Latpanchar is also known for being the home to the Himalayan Salamander and numerous species of birds and butterflies. Other touristic destinations like Kurseong, Dilaram, Bagora are all within 20 kms of Sittong. Chatakpur, the picture-perfect village within the Senchal Wildlife Sanctuary is also within 30 km from Sittong.
Enjoy long nature walks along the villages and take a peek into the traditional lifestyle of the Lepchas, eat as many oranges as possible and visit the church to find some solace. You can enjoy a dip in the Riyang River and do some bird watching and butterfly watching too. You can also avail some light treks to the nearby Labda village and few nearby spots with a local guide.
