"Borong - In nature's lap"

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted Jun 5, 2016
Borong is situated about 20 km from Ravangla. It suggested that Borong should be visited along with Buddha Park and Ralong, total time being taken 4 hours.

Lovely place with scenic beauty. May stay for a night, if you like to stay within the nature for long. Road is more or less alright.

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted Mar 6, 2013
Great place far from the madding crowd with awsm scenic view

Food, sight-seeing and shopping: Will have to eat at the hotel it self or else will have to drive down to Rabangla, but food at the hotel is good very much home made , must go to Namchi to see Char Dham an enormous temple complex carved out of the hills.

Activities & things to do: Must do a bonfire with live chicken roast

Travel tips, How to reach, travel warnings etc: From NJP take a car and drive down via Rabangla, take all necessary from Rabangla itself.
