We went Rishop on February 2015 is a Very beautiful place, and the hotel is top of the hill and surrounded with hills. The best thing is you can easily see the Kanchanjanga from the hotel room without any obstruction. The room was very good well furnished and the staff was very good. Room service and food quality was very... More

Arguably one of the best located hotels of Rishop as far as view of Kanchenjunga is concerned.One can enjoy the sight of mountain ranges in the comfort of the hotel bedrooms or can take a leisurely walk up or down the hill.Lying on the bed and watching the stars twinkle in night is an experience you'll hardly forget.

Lovely location, wonderful weather (8500 ft above MSL), relaxing large rooms, good food and friendly staff, specially a guy called Achintya....very cordial manager, Mr Tuhin Mondal...and on top of it sweeping views of the mighty Himalayas make this a great place to spend a couple of days...

Hotel is not synonymous to location. There is absolutely no Management in this Hotel.

The best possible location in Rishyap. All rooms have the best possible view staring from Nepal to Bhutan including kanchanjangha view just straight to your room view. You can stay here and visit all nearby locations like Lava & Lolegaon.
