This is the second time that I visited Rishyap and stayed in Kanchan View Tourist Lodge again, in the same room. The only difference is, 4 years back I visited with my parents and this time with my wife. Like the last time, I would not need to comment on the service as it is and was always A-Class. It is located on the top of the hill, and so we should not forget the problem with water and few other amenities. Still, they are providing warm water which is extremely crucial in this chilling weather, as a Geyser is attached in the bathroom. The food cannot be compared with Chef's special but are above the standards. Service is excellent and so I preferred this hotel even this time. The Kanchenjunga view from the room is unbeatable and unmatchable from any hotel, though you can't blame the hotel if the weather is bad. Overall my experience is again Excellent. My rating is 100/100. Note: For those who wants 5 star or 7 star service. Be sensible! Please do not expect 5 star or 7 star service.

I was with my friends on a holiday. Our stay was in Feb 2017. There was a Pine forest close to the hotel and it was ideal for walks and spending time. The view of Kanchenjunga was exquisite. We took a cab that dropped us at a walk able distance from the hotel. It was more like a home stay. Our room was comfortable, however there was no geyser in the washroom. Otherwise everything was fine. The food service was very timely. Whenever I ordered anything it was delivered within 5 minutes. The food was good in taste and quality. Complimentary breakfast was provided. The activities like camp fire and trekking were available. Would suggest travellers to carry basic necessities as the hotel/lodge was in a village kind of an area and there were no shops available in near distance.
This lodge had a great view but the interiors and rooms were in bad shape. Service was not good. My room was dark and unclean. There was no heater in the room. The food was very expensive and not good in taste. The location and view of Kanchenjunga was the only good thing about this accommodation. I had done an online booking. I stayed at this lodge in December 2016. I was with my family.

It was a dream come true to experience Mt. Kanchenjunga from every nook and corner of the lodge, Kanchan View Tourist Lodge. The appearance of the lodge from outside was pretty well. The rooms were airy, spacious and cosy too. We stayed at the first floor. The weather was too chilly and freezing that time. We stayed there for 2 nights, left the lodge on 25. 10. 2015 morning after having breakfast. The bedspreads and quilts were quite comfortable and clean too. Food was quite good, with special mention to Suji Chapati, which they made with suji atta. They served all non spicy meal with good taste. The lodge staff were exuberant enough. They were agile, and met with our expectations fairly. Their behaviour is mentionable, always rendered service with a smiling face, even if we made them confused. There was a restaurant on the ground floor, a well-maintained one sit and eat type place. It's indeed a good place to stay in as you get to see the mesmerising view of Mt. Kanchenjunga. Though best time to visit the place is during October to mid November, as Mt. Kanchenjunga will be clearly visible that time, as we experienced. One needs to buy mineral water from the lodge reception just to avoid water borne any kind of diseases. Power cuts were frequent though generator was there, but better to carry torch, candle, matchboxes etc. As the road condition is terrible especially from New Jalpaiguri station to Rishyap, so I would definitely think twice before giving a try again. Otherwise, the place was too good to be true. Next time, I will definitely bring along a pair of badminton rackets as there's an elongated space in front of the lodge for playing. A very good camera is also a must.
Me & my Wife reached Rishop on 3rd Oct\'11 evening @ around 7.00 pm. On the first look we really liked the room & the whole lodge. Our room was on the 1st flr which had a awesome view in the night itself. In the morning when we came out @ the corridor, Golden Kanchenjunga was in front of us..later when the sun came out it turned milky white..People around rishop came here just to view the peak as it had 1 of best views from here. On a whole it was an excellent experience. The room service & all was really good. No complaints whatsoever. We would definitely love to go there again in future..cheerz
We spent a peaceful and lovely holiday in april at kanchanview tourist lodge,rishop. This lodge is beautiful itself, essence of nature. All the snow peaked mountain khapg ,jalepla,simbo,kabroo nathula,rothung etc and .kanchanzongha were face to face with us all the time at hotel rooms. There is a wide space nd garden in front of your room and also has a sweet little hut to have a coffee or tea. We thought that there is no need to go anywhere as we enjoy all the beauty of lonely hilly remote village from here. This is the best experience I ever gain.
We had planned to stay very close to nature for a few days away from the hustle and bustle of the hectic life around us. In doing so we came across this small hamlet of 'Rishyap'. A place where the mighty Kanchenjunga watches you from all sides. Being close to Neora Valley Forest the place provides a wild experience. The Home stay is nicely located on a small plateau with an open ground with no hindrance to your sight. Moreover the food is really good as the hosts are. It's a nice home away from home. There are no restaurants on the roadside so be prepared to carry dry fruits and snacks in case you want to enjoy your leisure time munching on something. The local cuisine is excellent and fresh for the taste buds to explore. The facilities won't pinch your pockets at all. A stay about a couple of days will give you a chance to trek along the mountain trails and explore the virgin forest nearby.
A good place to relax and get a wonderful view of Kanchenjunga. Hotel owner Mr. Gurung and his wife served wonderful food and we loved their hospitality. Rooms were decent and our cottages were at a private corner of the hill. Overall it was a great experience and I would surely love to go back for another holiday.
