It is the untouched heaven in the Northern Sikkim with a striking beauty. It is a beautiful land of dense jungle groves, mountains and pristine glacial streams that nurture both the human and natural habitation around. Numerous waterfalls cascade down steep cliffs and bubbling hot springs can be found hidden beneath the shelter of caves. In other words, a pristine and soothing natural world with tiny beautiful Lepcha hamlets and divine calmness characterizes the place.

Cascading waterfalls, verdant valleys with glacial streams truly make Dzongu the Hidden Paradise or ‘Mayal Lyang’ as the Lepchas say. An almost virgin territory with a scanty population, it is a beautiful land of dense jungle groves and pristine glacial streams that nurture both the human and natural habitation around. The area is remote and surrounded by formidable jagged peaks that reach out to the sky. Sparsely populated, the areas steep hills pitching into deep ravines portray a picturesque setting of solitude and calm.
