The retreat is on the road between Kalimpong and Pedong. The cottages are further away in the property. If you are looking for a quiet place and listen to the birds, the place is ideal.

The resort took us totally by surprise with its pristine surroundings, well laid out cottages, out of the world food and an amazing service. Talking about their service,... More

My husband, our two-yr- old daughter and I spent this Holi-Easter long weekend at Pedong. I had booked online in January, and the entire process was seamless till closure of the trip. Search for the Silk Route Retreat. It is 45 mins upward of Kalimpong; serene, calm and absolutely peaceful. The hotel has lovely cottages; these are spartan, very clean... More

Their chef knew his business alright. We were on a romantic getaway and Silk Route provided all of it - including a candle-lit dinner on Valentine's day. We... More

Bidhan acharya was expecting us, a group of people out for exploring pedong as an off beat country side place to visit while in darjeeling. We were the happy visitors of a hill station soaking in the beautiful scenery along with bits of reality that we would not have otherwise bothered to look up. Well, ya bidhan, the wonderfully friendly... More
