The cottages are well built, looks very beautiful both from inside and outside. These are all built of wood and some parts from concrete. There is one large hanging bridge... More

Suntalekhola is located around 6 Kms from the samsing tea estates and is an ideal nature retreat, getting lost amongst the lush green environment, continuous melody of the flowing river water and the chirping of the birds around you.
