Tinchuley was a distant hamlet in the wilderness. It is one of the hidden treasures of Darjeeling region. Three ovens or chullas is the meaning of the word Tinchuley. It was an initiative of the inhabitants of Tinchuley to convert their rural village into self-sustained eco-urban village. The organizations like WWF (World Wildlife Federation) contributed to the development of floriculture projects, forest nursery, and by-compost and vermin-compost manure projects. There are numerous viewpoints in Tinchule like the Gumbadara View point, which gives extraordinary views of River Teesta. The Tinchule View point gives nearly a 180 degree view of the entire range of Eastern Himalayas with the majestic Mt. Kanchenjungha ruling the sky. You can also view towns like Gangtok, Kalimpong and Darjeeling from these view points.
A magnificent sight of Kalimpong in the distance. The winding way of the Tista River. The towering peak of Mt. Kanchenjunga and numerous walks through winding paths across villages and forests. You can also visit a local monastery. Darjeeling is nearby and so are the numerous Tea Estates like RungleeRungliot and others.
