Darjeeling is a hill near Bengal. He went to Darjeeling in search of peace even though he got a few days off. Reached Darjeeling and saw the sleeping Buddha, but did not seek peace. Crowds of tourists on Shailshahr and Mall Road. A crowd of sleeping Bengalis. This is why offbeat spots around Darjeeling are becoming popular among tourists these days. But to go to those places one has to wander on Pakandi road for an hour. However, it is a stone’s throw away from Darjeeling’s main town, Singhamari.
Singhamari is located at a distance of 4 km from Darjeeling Mall. Darjeeling Ropeway, Himalayan Mountaineering Museum are also very close to this place. Only 2 kilometers away. Those who don’t like the crowded atmosphere of Shailshahr can spend the night at this Singhamari and explore Darjeeling. The whole of Shailshahr can be seen standing on the lap of Singhamari. You can see how the whole city is built on the hill. In the dark of night, the entire city is lit up with lights. Looks more attractive.
From Singamari you can experience both the urban life of Darjeeling and the village life of the hills. Although it looks like a ginormous when entering Singhamari, the entire village is surrounded by green tea plantations. Once you enter the village, you will not see that crowded scene. But the sight that never changed was Kanchenjunga. Kanchenjunga range can be seen from every corner of the village. Green tea plantations surround Singhamari. Also there is a small cave in the village. The famous tea estate of Darjeeling, Singdom, is located near this village. Singdom Tea Estate can be visited on foot along the mountain path.
