Jhandi: The link between the hills and the valley
Jhandi Eco Villa’s are probably the best place to stay in Jhandi. This place is just 1.5 hours away from Malbazar junction and is just the place where the hill ranges start from Dooars plains.
Jhandi is almost as high as Darjeeling, so you get chilly weather along with the view of Hill ranges ( Including a clear view of Kanchenjungha) and the Dooars, river plain on the other side.
No doubt it’s an awesome position to stay.
The Nathula range greets you from the attic rooms’ glass walls and the Kanchendzonga says ‘hello’ on a sun-kissed morning. Nights are made of yellow fog, bonfires, whispers of the Zephyr and the warmth of comfortable blankets. Surrounding you are mists, mountains, moments and mountain music. A must go find from our side
