SILLERY GAON " Close to nature"
About Sillery Gaon
Sillery is a newly discovered offbeat destination which is popular among those who like to enjoy the charm off Mt Kanchenjunga as a backdrop of lush green deep pine forest along with different species of flora and fauna. The village is nestled at an altitude of 6000ft in the Kalimpong subdivision of Darjeeling district. The word 'Sillery' or 'Sillari' comes the name of a tree which grows abundant in this place. The ancient silk route, which went through Pedong, is only 6km away from Sillerygaon. At Sillery you can feel that you are in the midst of nature far away from the maddening life of cities. During sunrise Mt Kanchenjunga can be seen very clearly from here, which makes it an ideal location for photography.
