1. Padamchen, East Sikkim – 116 kms from Siliguri

Perched on a hill slope at 7,000 ft and covered in dense forests, Padamchen is a small village on the Silk Route circuit just 14 kms from Rongli and 10 kms from Zuluk. Padamchen experiences a very pleasant weather throughout the year and this is one of the main reasons for its popularity. If you are not used to biting cold and snowfall but want to experience the mesmerizing sunrise and winding roads and valleys of this Silk Route circuit, then staying at Padamchen could be a choice. The forests around Padamchen support a wide variety of bird population and bird watchers would love to spend a few days here. There is a heritage Forest Resthouse at Padamchen where you can stay. The wooden floors, fireplace, verandah and wooden furniture of this Forest Bungalow in Padamchen offer a unique experience of the forgotten days of the lonely Forest Officers and Sahibs who used to travel this way. Dense temperate forests surrounding the Padamchen village is home to a huge bird population like Laughing thrushes, Fulvettas, Honey Buzzards, Steppe Eagles, Babblers, Tits, Wrens and others. The deeper regions of the forest have occasional visitors like Himalayan Black Bear and Leopards. While staying at Padamachen, you can go to watch the sunrise over Mt. Kanchenjungha range from Thambi View Point (around 24 kms away) at 11,200 feet. The beautiful Kuikhola falls is just a few minutes drive from Padamchen.



2. Reshikhola
Reshikhola is a riverside destination just 37 km from Kalimpong and very near to Pedong. The little village of Reshikhola received its name from the Reshi River running along this small place. In Nepali language ‘Khola’ means ‘small stream’. The place falls in between West Bengal and Sikkim creating a division between the two states. Like all other rivulets crisscrossing the sub-Himalayan range, the Reshi river coast is strewn with rocks and boulders with stream waters gushing around them. The river valley is surrounded by forests which are home to numerous birds and occasional bigger visitors like bears. Some basic homestays with nice modern facilities have come up along the Reshi riverside. These homestays overlook the river and promote eco-tourism where tourists can enjoy fresh caught fish and short treks around the forests. Reshi River is also believed to be a part of a popular travel route where, caravans used to stop for water. However, any existence of the Old Silk Route here is not proven. Take a dip in the Reshi River and drown yourself in the sound of gushing water. At Reshikhola, you can do some basic angling too. If you are a birdwatcher, then you can take a walk in the surrounding forests too. The nearest tourist destinations of Reshikhola are Pedong, Sillery Gaon, Kaagey Village, Mankhim, Aritar, Lingzey and Kalimpong. As Reshikhola is a much warmer place just 2000 feet above sea level, it is favoured by some tourists as the final retreat in the Silk Route.
