Sillery Gaon
 
Sillery Gaon, a small village surrounded on all sides by tall pine trees, at a height of about 6000 ft in the Darjeeling district, is an upcoming tourist destination, lovingly called by the locals as New Darjeeling.

Located at a distance of around 8 km from Pedong and 5 km from 21 Miles, this sleepy village of New Darjeeling offers a magnificent view of the Kanchendzonga, the third highest peak in the world. The shimmering silver peak and the serenity around entice every traveller visiting the village.

The name “Sillery” is derived from the name of a plant that grows in abundance in the region. This area also abounds in Cinchona Plantation which was introduced in this region by the British, as a source of Quinine used for the treatment of Malaria.However, cultivation still continues today, despite alternative quinine derivatives.

This quaint village of Sillarygaon houses around 30 families for whom felling of trees and basic agriculture was a way of life before village eco-tourism paved the way for an alternative source of livelihood. A few families have made collective effort to promote eco-tourism with the introduction of a few Home stays in the face of adverse conditions. With no permanent electricity supply in the village, the villagers ensure comfort and electricity to tourists by using generators or providing candles and kerosene lamps at night.

All the villagers make a concerted effort to maintain the ambience of a clean village. The village offers a nice view of the Kanchendzonga massif and provide trekkers with a chance to hike to the Ramitey view point, the Tinchuley View point as well as the Damsang Fort.

Sillarygaon has a soothing and salubrious climate. It is worth visiting throughout the year. It is liked by everyone - children, adults, and elders alike.

Sillarygaon in fact has a lot to offer to its visitors – the hospitality of Sillery gaon Homestay, excellent view of the Kanchendzonga, sightseeing, bird watching, hiking, adventure sports and a trip down memory lane for history aficionados. So let Sillarygaon or New Darjeeling be your next offbeat destination.
