Hidden Treasure of West Bengal-Yelbong
Are you a nomad?Do you love hills more than anything?Got love for adventure?Got love for hilly rivers?Does outdoor Camping under the starry night or beside a hilly river amidst of jungle excites you?Do you love to explore hidden beautiful waterfalls or mother nature’s beautiful rare creation the ”River Canyon” ,which is seldom found?Does the chirping of birds,kiss of lovely butterflies ,sound of a flowing river and sudden sound of silence provide foods to your soul?Do you love to hear the hymns in a calm place far from madding crowd while sitting idle at a rock or resting in a hammock in front of your tent? Do you love those amateur jamming sessions with guitar/ukulele/flutes around a bonfire with local drinks and smells of smoked chicken?
If all the answer is yes and you are searching for a such place then your search ends here in Yelbong,a tiny rural hilly hamlet in Kalimpong district of West Bengal with lovely villagers who are ready to welcome you and show you the hidden treasures, mother nature kept around them and they are protecting them very well.
Let me introduce this very beautiful place which is very lesser known to many a travel bugs.
The great river canyon is there only, Now if you plan for camping then walk a bit more to the meeting point of two river at Limbuni ,that’s a great place for Riverside camping and fishing,So basically you are doing a River trekking which is fun.
This River canyon trek of West Bengal attracts many visitors from all around the world but alas we are so unlucky to unfold it to many of our Bengal travellers as well as Indian Travellers. This trek is organised batch wise, due to many reasons ,like the general arrangements like stay,food,toilets,instructors,safety gears,guides etc. The very first batch successfully explored it in late October of this year only,I was a part of this batch and believe me this is awestrucking . Yelbong River Canyon Trek, also called river canyoneering is an all-in-one package for adventures lovers. It combines rappelling, swimming, bouldering,jummering,river crossing and many other terms of adventure sports.
Time when this can be done:: Except monsoon and chilling cold of November to mid January. So late September to early November and late January to march is suitable time to access it.
So all the beautiful and responsible travellers are welcome to Yelbong to enjoy all these natural and rare beauties.
Lets spread love for the hills of North Bengal and travel responsibly.
