This is an idyllic spot on top of a mountain and is surrounded by mist and shrouded mountains. There are places around Arhitar which offers spectacular views of the Himalaya including Mount Kanchendzonga, Mount Makalu, Mount Pandim, Mount Sinoulchu, etc. Rhenock is a small picturesque settlement on the Valley just 4 kilometers from the lake. There are few picturesque spots like Zuluk, Jelep La Pass, Baba Dham / Mandir, Kupup Lake, etc. The area’s botanical and zoological richness is inspiring, the roads are clean and population is sparse. As the place is not among the mass destination spot the rush is less and the scenic view scanning across deep valley to the mystic heights of Kanchendzonga ranges is something to be cherished. There are a few historical site and a spectacular village is on the way to the historic Silk Route to China. Jelep La Pass serves as the entry point to for Tibet and Chinese during the historic period. This is a small tourist destinations but attractive particularly the snow clad mountains, the lakes and unspoiled forest areas and valleys of flowers with rich natural surrounding. This is an ideal place for leisure holiday, trekker, wildlife, ornithologist, adventure seekers, botanist, etc. The route to Arhitar passes through places like Pedong, Lava, Lolaygaon, Kalimpong of West Bengal and the other approach road is via Rangpo and Rorathang. Places like Gangtok, Rumtek, Jorethang and Namchi are easily assessable from Arhitar. There are high and soaring mountains and river all along the route. They provide dream setting for adventure lovers and nature lovers. There are some wonderful trek routes which are all two to three days trip. The amenities are basics. We would advice tourist to avail stay at Reshi. It’s a home stay without luxury. Difficult terrain and the beauty of this place are definitely charming. It is also a fine setting for Angling and Birding. Tour will be most enjoyable and tremendously charming trips.
