Tendong Hill


The absorbing sight of the hills and valleys from Tendong Hill captivates tourists with its lush greenery. Located above Damthang, Tendong is a must visit destination. From here, one can see a fascinating sight of the unshaven hills of Namchi, the district headquarter of south Sikkim. Namchi, which itself attracts many travellers to partake in adventure activities like rafting and trekking. In fact, Namchi is the main base for trekking to Tendong Hill, however, Damthang town can also be considered as a secondary base camp site since this place is en route to the hill. There are about 90 species of birds that flock to the area and a large number of mammals like Himalayan Bears, Red Pandas and Leopards that shelter amidst this jaded forest. Darjeeling and some part of the plains of West Bengal are visible from here. March till June are the ideal months to visit Tendong Hill
