Only idle for Nature lovers and enjoy the silence. Surrounded by tall trees and birds. Fog surrounds the area. However the only motorable Road is narrow and in very bad condition. The stones are lying on the roads. Hired cars charge a premium amount on this route.

Rishyap is an extremely beautiful place with a more natural touch as you can enjoy the small village by simply walking and watching the 180 degree view of the snow capped peaks! Personally will love to visit this place again!

Rishyap can be reached either by vehicle or on foot from Lava. The last few kilometres of road is very steep and not good for vehicle ride.

While coming from Siliguri via Kalimpong the last few kilometers was bit rough but as we landed at Rishyap the view changed our mood.Even though it was first day of June there was a tinge of coolness in air.My room in the Sonar Bangla hotel was on first floor with...
