Mystic Rishop
Rishyap is a small tourist village in the Kalimpong hills situated at an altitude of about 8,100 feet. The village is located close to Lava. The undiluted charm of staying in a hill village among chirping birds and waking up with the view of the Majestic Kanchenjunga is the primary reason behind the popularity of Rishyap. Apart from the Kanchenjunga range, a visitor can also see the Sikkim, Bhutan and Nepal mountains including Jelep la from Rishyap. Nathula, the famous Into-Chinese boarder that has been opened up for trade, is also visible from here.

Rishyap can be reached either by vehicle or on foot. About 7 kms from Lava towards Kalimpong, you will have to take a right turn and drive about 5 kms to reach Rishyap. The last few kilometres of road is mostly not in great shape and smaller vehicles may have difficulty negotiating the steep curves, hence larger vehicles are recommended. The other option is to walk to Rishyap from Lava, if you are not carrying too many luggage and wont mind walking for 5 kms, you may ask locals at Lava for the route and enjoy a nice stroll through forests.

Tiffindara (Dara means Hilltop in local language) is a place that offers excellent views of the Himalaya. The same place is also sometimes referred to as Sherpa Dara. There is a viewing tower at Tiffindara for better view of Rishyap and around.
