Tinchuley Orange Cottage; Best Place to Stay for Kanchenjunga view
Tinchuley is basically a village in the Takdah district of Darjeeling but a bit of the away from the main town. It is an offbeat location and not many are aware of its existence. Darjeeling and Ghoom are near to this place but when one reaches this place it will look like it has not been touched by the nearby towns.
It has been able to retain its virgin beauty because as I was told by the owner of the homestay where I had was staying that there are only seventeen houses in entire Tinchuley and not many tourists visit the place because they don’t know or have heard about this place and commercialization has not reached this place.
However, things are Changing fast and Tinchule is fast gaining popularity among travelers for its stunning appeal with great Kanchenjunga view, pine forests, tea plantation, and great weather. Our Tinchule Orange Cottages probably maximizes on these with clear 180 degrees Kanchenjunga range view, great foods and hospitality that you will find hard to forget. Europian styled building and isolated cottages taken out from the pages of fairy tale goes a long way to make any stay memorable.
A must visit from our side. This place will certainly make your trip a memorable one.
