Sitong - The Orange County

Darjeeling-India

Darjeeling Hills of eastern Himalaya have various attractions waiting to be explored, and one of these famous places is Sitong. This is a tiny hilly village loved for the warmth of hospitality of its locals. From Sitong, one can traverse the complete circuit of Sitong, Lamahatta and Chatakpur. These places are in the near vicinity of Darjeeling town, and all are blessed by unique natural beauty.


Sitong is a tiny hamlet of Eastern Himalaya which changes its character in winter and becomes a trendy destination. But why so? Orange cultivation. It has earned Sitong the laurel of being called the Orange County of Darjeeling Hills. But that is not all. Sitong is a destination that plays a significant role in terms of Tagoriana too. Mungpoo, which is at a distance of 31 km approximately, was blessed by our Nobel Laureate poet Rabindranath Tagore. This stunning destination also has other attractions apart from pristine nature and romantic Riyang. Staying in Sitong could be a memorable experience when you interact with the locals, joining hands in the organic garden of homestays and, if the situation permits, then exchange culinary ideas with the host.
