A small village between Manebhanjyang and Sandakphu in the Darjeeling district, Tonglu is the perfect retreat to unwind and/or explore the mountains. A trek through a forest in the eastern Himalayas, a panoramic view of snow-covered peaks such as the Kanchenjunga, Pandim and the Makalu, a picturesque trekkers’ hut and solitude — Tonglu promises much and delivers for the most part. The village is named after one of the higher peaks on the Singalila Ridge. It is located inside the Singalila National Park in the Darjeeling subdivision of the district, near the India-Nepal border. The hamlet generally serves as a night halt for trekkers on their way to Sandakphu.
