  • I understand the fact that it was very helpful for early Tibetan refugees but there is nothing to do here for the tourists except taking a glance at the little buildings and a show room.
  • You can take a taxi. But walking is more enjoyable as you will walk amidst the locals in serene surroundings. Youncan always return from TRSHC by shared jeep by paying ₹20. It's a must visit place for any pure traveller. Reach the mall ground. Locate the Nathmull's Sunset Tea Lounge. You'll see a narrow road beginning at the shop and going downwards in front. Take the road. That's the CR Das Road. Walk for a few minutes. You'll come in front of a fork. It is clearly marked there that one of the bifurcations (the upper one) goes to the Tibetan Refugee Self Help Centre and the other to the Bhutia Busty Monastery. The first is roughly 25 min downhill walk, the latter 15 min downhill. Enjoy.
  • in lebong road at a distant place from main town. woolen garments, antiques can be shopped
  • This place is quite far from the town, the best way to reach there is a reserve taxi or you can find shared taxi from the motor stand to lebong till lebong tea garden and a bit uphill walk for 15 mins This place is the place where the Tibetan refugees first settled in Darjeeling When the Tibetan chased away from Tibet by the Chinese This place has measum where you will know details about Tibetan and about there country There is a small factory where the Tibetan make carpets and rugs it's interesting to see how they make this in a traditional old way You can also buy their hand made products there Now most of the young people are out from there for better jobs you will find mostly old people there
  • Inspirational Experience, cool place where you can see how the make different type of handicrafts. People are very nice and helpful they tell you what and how they are doing. There is a showroom where they sell this thing in cheap cost quality of products is very good. It is little bit far away form town center. watch video here https://youtu.be/OK2vxwMzr5M
