Calm and quiet weekend at Srikhola

A serene land surrounded by mountain and covered by forest where sun rises and sets with the poetic rhythm of river seem like a dream of urban citizens. It is neither a dream nor too far from Kolkata. It can be reached by an overnight train journey. Name of this picturesque village is Srikhola (or Sirikhola).


Located in North Bengal, near to Darjeeling, Srikhola can be reached by several ways. This is the last point of Sandakphu trek. It can also be reached by car from Darjeeling, Mirik, New Jalpaiguri. After the motor able road, a small walk of 10 minutes will reach you to Srikhola village right after crossing a wooden hanging bridge on the river Siri.
