Our overall experience at Lepchajagat is EXCELLENT - the staff behavior is superb and takes care with warmth and hospitality. We feel this place should be promoted more specially for those who want to spend a few days "far from the madding crowd". For those who want shops, marketing, people and crowd - this is not the place. The food served was always hot and tasty and was prompt.
Darjeeling is very near and we spent a day there and came back to the fold of fog in the evening and enjoyed the steaming coffee and snacks in the warm room.

Lepchajagat is indeed a nature lover's paradise. And the hospitality of the caretaker & cook at the resort is also warm. I would love to visit there sometime again.
The view of Kanchenjunga from the roof, and the window of Suite 1 was amazing.
I went to Jorepokhri for a day from Lepchajagat. And reached NJP by car from Jorepokhri directly.
Thank you for your help with the prompt booking of Lepchajagat Nature Resort.

It's a very lonely place but peaceful. Attendants are very cooperative. But the road approaching the Nature Resort needs immediate repair. Rooms are not cleaned daily. Staff members clean it on request. Food is very good and homely.

We used to walk at morning as well as evening near the resort and enjoy natural beauties. During our stay from 26/10/2013 for 4 days it was very cold. Temperature was about 7 to 8 degree celsius during evening.

If the rooms and outside of the Resort (gardens etc.) are maintained, the Resort would be more attractive. Some furniture needs repair. There is another building adjacent to the Resort, but it is not used. It could be furnished for staying for tourists. Overall good properties, but needs proper care.


Sandip Mukherjee from Kolkata writes to Kolahal Travel Guide:
Date of visit: 9th Feb 2013


We visited Lepchajagat and stayed there from 9th Feb to 10th Feb 2013. We were 5 people and we booked Suite 1 and Suite 2. Suite 1 is the best room with view of Kanchenjunga, if weather is clear, from the bed. You can see the first rays of the sun falling on the Kanchenjunga from the terrace of the resort. Each room is equipped with room heaters in working condition. But the heaters are insufficient as compared to the cold. There is a fireplace which the caretaker will light up for an extra cost of Rs 250 for the logs. All washrooms are fitted with geysers.

But before visiting Lepchajagat it is better to call up the caretaker at the numbers provided in the bill and tell him to keep good quantity of chicken and eggs as they do not keep extra. In case you want extra chicken pakoras, then you may be dissapointed. Food variety is not there, You will get 4 puri and sabji at Rs 35 per plate, butter toast and omlette in the breakfast. In lunch they will provide you chicken at Rs 70 per plate which has 3 small pieces of chicken. Egg curry consists of 1 egg and will cost Rs 20 per plate. Roti is quite thick and costs Rs 5 per piece. While ordering food, please remember the quantity of rice and dal per plate is quite large.

It is a must see for all nature lovers and a 2 night stay will be sufficient. You can visit Jorepokhri, about 10 kms, Nepal border which is about 12 kms. Take a local sumo which the caretaker will arrange. Going to Jorepokhri, border and back will cost you Rs 600 in the winters. The same sumo will take you back to Darjeeling for Rs 700. Darjeeling is about 23 kms. from Lepchajagat.

A very beautiful place with a view of Kanchanjangha from the roof top. Different types of birds, fern, and silence caused a great pleasure. The food supplied by the canteen boys and friendship of the dog "brownee" are unforgettable.

SOMEN SENGUPTA writes:


Kanchenjunga, the queen of the Himalayas, has one of her best views from Lepchajagat, an isolated hamlet in Darjeeling.

Situated in a dense forest of rhododendron, oak and pine, it used to be a nondescript village of the Lepchas before the British marked their footprint here in the early 19th century.

Now, it has become a hotspot for nature-lovers and honeymooners. The West Bengal Forest Development Corporation has rebuilt a British bungalow as a guest house that ensures a breathtaking view of the Himalayas from every room.

Your tryst with the queen will start before dawn breaks. Set your alarm clock and get ready by 4.30am. The morning mist might play spoilsport but do not get demotivated — the day is long enough for a royal appointment.

The name Kanchenjunga means “five treasures of snow”. Lucky are those who get to view all five peaks together.

Before the sun starts rising over the Tiger Hill, which is on the other side of Lepchajagat, the sky gradually becomes milky and then blue. The orange and pink sunrays fall on the peaks and the giant figure comes alive.

The combination of the silence and the majestic mountain range in front has an almost meditative effect.

In the afternoon, treat yourself to a plate of steaming rice with pulses and chicken. Take a leisurely stroll in the woods around the guest house.

Set the fireplace ablaze and sip a cup of aromatic tea with tasty pakodas in the evening.

The view from the terrace after sundown may catch your fancy. Darjeeling town looks like a hill dressed up in Diwali lights.

To get a clearer view of Kanchenjunga, you can move to the Balsan Valley, which is 2.5 km away from the guest house. A kilometre-long trek route will take you to a place called Hawa Ghar that commands a even clearer view of the queen.

You could also visit Jorepokhri, another spot to watch the Himalayas in all its grandeur.
