Lamahatta has been developed as an eco-tourism place in late 2012. Lamahatta is located at an altitude of about 5,700 feet and at a distance of 23kms from Darjeeling hill town (takes little over an hour by car). Although it’s just a small village where farming and cattle rearing are the main sources of livelihood, Lamahatta is well connected by the Darjeeling-Kalimpong state highway. Actually, you get magnificent views from several different places in the garden. What can you see? Probably some of the best that any place in Darjeeling district offers …. on a clear day you can see the snow peaks of Kanchenjunga, Tiger Hill, Namchi of Sikkim, Darjeeling town and its landscapes, and the Rangeet river flowing below. Overall, Lamahatta offers a serene, quiet and a romantic environment. It’s ideal for honeymooners or couples who would like to spend some quiet and intimate time with nature, take some nature walks through the maze of pine forest, enjoy the beautiful garden & the views around as well as several other natural attractions nearby. The main inhabitants here are tribes like Sherpas, Yalmos, Tamangs, Bhutias and Dukpas.
