Lamahatta is a scenic village in West Bengal, 23km from Darjeeling. To showcase the magnificent views of peaks & rivers and the dhupi & pine forests here, the Lamahatta Eco Park was created in 2012. Lamahatta means Monk’s Hermitage and so, this place promises an environment that feels as tranquil as a monk – a measure of balance between nature & man. At an altitude of 5,700 ft., this eco-park has a lot to offer.The eco-park has wooden & bamboo gazebos that overlook the beauty of Lamahatta. The manicured garden, known as the ‘Roadside Garden’, flowers various plants seasonally including white and yellow orchids. There are many homestays around the area.
