TONGLU village is named after one of the higher peaks on the Singalila Ridge. It is located inside the Singalila National Park in the Darjeeling subdivision of the district, near the India-Nepal border. The trek through a forest in the eastern Himalayas, a panoramic view of snow-covered peaks such as the Kanchenjungha, Pandim and the Makalu, a picturesque trekkers’ hut and solitude — Tonglu promises much and delivers for the most part. The sun rise behind the Kanchenjungha range is a magnificent sight. The play of colours on the snow-capped peaks is worth getting up at the crack of dawn.
Dhotrey is a small settlement at 2700mts situated in the subhimmalayan Bengal. is a perfect location for starting the trek to Sandakphu. It is located 11 Km from Darjeeling between Manebhanjan and Rimbik. Dhotre offers a beautiful trek to Tonglu through an exquisite forest trail thus letting us avoid the conventional trek from Manebhanjan. One can enjoy a terrific view of the pristine Kanchendzonga range on a clear day and the majetic range stays by your side all through the trek as you climb from Dhotre to Tonglu.
