Sitong is one of the most untouched parts of the Eastern Himalayan foothills. A serene hamlet famous for its orange orchards, the place is a treasure trove for all those seeking to spend some quality time amidst the nature away from the daily humdrum of life. This Lepcha village is crisscrossed by a hilly rivulet (Khola as called by the local people) and is guarded by the lush green Darjeeling Hills. Every house in Sitong has a garden and every garden has an orange orchard. No wonder this picturesque hamlet is often called the orange village.
