WELCOME TO SILLARY MOUNTAIN VIEW VILLAGE RESORT
Sillery Gaon or the New Darjeeling, as it is called locally is located at the end of
around 5 km kutcha road originating from Algarah. Sillery is
located at a height of 6000 ft in the Darjeeling district. It is a small village housing
around 30 houses, most of them having converted to homestays.
The cottage-type houses with slanting tinned roofs having a backdrop of pine forest looks so mystic and picturesque. The name Sillery comes from an edible green known as 'Sillery Saag' which once used to be cultured and harvested here by the villagers and sold in the market.
Farming still remains the main source of livelihood here, however over time with growing tourist interest, there is one more opportunity that has popped up for the villagers ... and that is to extend their houses to open up home stays. While homestays are still the main accommodations here, you can also find some retreats that have come up in recent times offering hotel-like accommodations & service, although the retreats too are quite basic and meant mainly for budget travelers.
