Rishyap - Your holiday destination
Rishyap is a small village and hill station in the Kalimpong district of the state of West Bengal, India. Rishyap is also spelt as Rishop . Rishyap was developed as a tourist destination recently in 1998. There are many myths and legends associated with the name Rishyap - Ri stands for mountain peak (some say it is lofty) and shyap means age-old trees in Tibetan.
The place is well known for the majestic views of the Kanchenjunga range. Over the years, many tourists accommodations have come up at Rishyap. The local Sherpas and Lepchas have built small cottage-type accommodations for tourist. Tiffindara, a sunrise-view spot, is about 1 km from here.
“Absolutely Amazing view location – off the beaten path, nestled away on a quiet, pristine hilltop. The property is very spread over a big area, very green and well landscaped, with excellent views of the Kangchenjunga and surrounding mountains (amazing spot for catching the sunrise and sunset). Staff was also very warm, courteous and welcoming, food was amazing with plenty of local varieties. The pine wood cottage was quaint and beautiful, with a campfire pit, bench and giant swing right outside. ”
“The location was stupendous, we got a panoramic view of the mountains, we stayed in the super-deluxe cottage from where we could see the Kanchenjunga peak right in front!! Service of the resort is worth mentioning, food was simple yet delectable. The resort manager seemed to be very nice and well-behaved, and the service provided by Jeevan kaka was simply memorable.”
“Our cottage had a absolutely delightful view which is to die for and our hosts were warm and friendly. The cottages, washrooms and sit out areas were super clean and Anmol who helped us with everything during our stay with a smile on his face was a blessing. This is by far the best place to stay at Rishop and is away from the maddening crowd and everything that luxurious 5 star stays offer. It is raw and pure and closest to nature. Also they use solar energy as an alternative source! And it snowed while I stayed at their place making it a very exclusive winter wonderland. ♥️”
