The journey to everyone’s “New Darjeeling” i.e. Sillery Gaon started last year in the month of April.After a day long hectic office my friends and I took the bus from KOLKATA to NJP on 28th April,2017.
I had been to sikkim many times before my visit to Sillery Gaon and those adequate amount of contacts I had collected in sikkim, led me to get the contact of Bhutia Shab.One phone call ,without an advanced payment Bhutia Shab made it to our place of weekend recreation.
Sillery Gaon is only 23kms away from Kalimpong and located at an altitude of around 6,000ft in Kalimpong sub-division.
Sillery Gaon ,a small village of attracting travellers for showcasing magnificent view of himalayan range including Kanchanjhanga peaks ,sunrise and sunset from different points of it’s.
On the 29th April,2017 we reached NJP by 9 o’clock in the morning.And Bhutia Shab’s warm welcome made our tiredness gone in a moment .Without wasting a time we headed towards shevok for our morning breakfast.Post breakfast our four wheeler started the actual journey to our weekend recreation spot,Sillery Gaon.
Before entering the village we were stopped by a place called “Silent Valley” ,a picturesque vast stretch of green meadow surrounded by pine trees .
