A small village with small resorts, surrounded by mountains overlooking the Kanchenjunga is Neora Valley. Small well made cosy huts are Kolakham ecohuts. Nice friendly people, good food and lovely views. The cost of stay starts from around Rs. 1600 to 2500 plus fooding.

A paradise for bird photographers.The wooden cottages amidst the lush green valley full of flora and fauna and floating clouds was refreshing.The view of Kanchenjunga from the balcony was mesmerizing.

Except the view of entire range of Kanchanjunga, you have nothing to do. Service was very poor and limited. We booked for 2 days but couldn't stay more than one night. Too much insects though it was 9 degree outside the room. Food quality and quantity both were poor. No arrangement for room heater though we asked for the same before booking. Road condition from Lava to Neora Valley Eco Huts was terrible which was not informed earlier by the Booking Agent (Hammock Hut Holidays), they just wanted to sell their property.

A relatively new place, but high in the hit list of non-conventional tourists, Kolakham is soon becoming a popular weekend gateway for anyone looking to spend some time away from the hustle bustle of the city. Located just outside the Neora Valley reserve forest and about 6kms from Lava, this small village comprising of hardly 25-30 families, is as deep into the nature as you can imagine. We visited the place around 15th August, 2016 and had a nice relaxing weekend to spend with only the sound of birds to keep our company. There are few homestays which one can hire for about 1500-2000 (excluding food). The people are super friendly and the food they provide is homely. We (4 friends) took a cottage (which to our surprise was a duplex), just at the edge of the valley, which had super open view with all the surrounding mountains. The name of the cottage was "Eco Green Huts & Hospitalities". At night, when it was pitch black, we could see the town of Kalimpog, resting far away like a cluster of cloud. There is a waterfall nearby, "Changer Falls", which one can visit. As well, one can visit the Neora Valley Reserve Forest, which according to many is a birder's paradise. How to Reach: The nearest railway station is NJP. From NJP one can have 2 options to reach Kolakham: 1. Hire a car (costs about Rs. 3,000) directly to Kolakham. 2. Go to Lava in a shared taxi and from Lava hire a car to Kolakham (costs about Rs. 1,000 to 1,500) Note: The road from Lava to Kolakham is VERY VERY bad. It is so bad, that small vehicles cannot go there. You will have to take some SUV. Another important tip, when you are hiring your car from NJP, the locals will force you to book the homestays from them as a package. Don't do that. Just get the transport from NJP, go to Kolakham and then get the rooms as per your choice. Things to do: 1. RELAX and enjoy nature. 2. Visit the Changer Falls 3. Visit the Neora Valley Reserve Forest (the forest remains closed from 15th June - 15th Sep) 4. Visit Lava, Lolegaon, Rishap (there is a buddhist monastry at Lava). Words of Caution: 1. If you are into super luxurious stays in your holidays, don't consider this place. There are homestays, no hotels. In the 2 days that we stayed there, we did not get any water and electricity for over a day. Saying that, if you enjoy nature and the beauty of the himalayas, and is not concerned with such petty earthly needs, do visit the place soon before it gets crowded.

The huts are truely eco.Our stay was ok.F ood was good. We had great expectations from kolakham bt it's nothing so special about it. One can just see Kanchenjunga from the rooms during sunrise. You can go to see the changey falls for which you will have to walk down for half an hour which is hectic. Overall a very lethargic stay.

This is located at Kolakham village which is about 6km from Lava. We stayed here in April 2016. Our cottage was red Minivet which is an isolated cottage with a spacious room, attached toilet with hot water and a hanging terrace. We loved this. Inside the room there was a queen size double bed and a small table with two comfortable chairs. Toilet was of western style but there was no tissue or commode shower. But we always carry toilet tissue so it was not a problem for us. The service quality was really very good. Food was also very good. I'll stay at this place if I go there again.
