Escaping into the lush chilly beauty of the mountains is every adventurous soul’s fantasy when it comes to travel. But how offbeat and unique can travel get, when it comes to finding places to explore? At Izifiso, we discover those unknown quiet forests, the small pastoral landscapes with natural bounties unexploited by urban pandemonium. This time, along the Singalila trekking route, Izifiso has rooted its flags at a lovely hilly hamlet, Samanden.

Located in a remote, mostly unexplored corner of the Darjeeling district in West Bengal, Samanden is a pastoral hilly farmland with large open spaces for camping. From Samanden, you can visit nearby places of mountainous prominence like Phalut, Ramam, Srikhola and Ribdi in Sikkim. Izifiso’s recommended campsites in Samanden provide you comfort, good food and delightful natural panorama outside your window as well as bonfire and barbeque facilities to guarantee you a comfortable yet adventurous stay. Rest your weary legs in between your long treks, or visit the renowned Singalila National Park or the Barsey Wildlife Sanctuary among the prominent sightseeing spots. The choice is yours! Book now!
