A lot of camps, treks, boating and other adventure activities held there. One can easily book these as adventure package. Even one can stay easily on the banks near the Sangam. Both camping and bon firing options are available as well. But i guess that too only for the winter months.

ABOUT THIS PLACE:

River Teesta originates from a lake known as Cholamu in North Sikkim. It flows down north to south and divides Sikkim and West Bengal until it reaches Teesta Bazaar.

One the other hand, river Rangeet originates from a glacier of Mount Kabre at the lower Kanchenjunga region. On its way down it meets with river Ramman a stream named Little Rangeet. And finally meets Teesta forming a huge torrent. This meeting place is known as Triveni Sangam.

Now it takes about 1.5hrs to reach Teesta Bazaar from Darjeeling town by a taxi or a shared jeep. From Teesta Bazaar, the distance to Triveni spot is 10.5 kms and will take 25 mins by a cab. But we have gone there from Sittong as a part of our sightseeing.
