Pedong is a beautiful place to see, the ancient Silk Route from Bengal and Sikkim border. It is located near the Kalimpong hills and the off road of Lava. We visited there in February 2017. It`s an awesome experience.

Pedong is just 20 kms from Kalimpong near Darjeeling. From Algarah take a left turn and you will soon reach Pedong. The small picturesque hamlet situated on a ridge and surrounded by pine forests, it commands some magnificent views of the surrounding hills.

The Old Silk Route passes through East Sikkim District. It is a part of the ancient network of trade routes which connected China to India. This route passed through Lhasa and Nathu La and Jelep La Pass and finally reached the port of Tamralipta in WB from where it took to the sea and reached far east.

@Tuhin, is this only a single route or there are many silk routes in a country?
