Todey Tangta

Todey and Tangta are two small hill hamlets situated in North of West Bengal. The two villages are located close to the India-Bhutan Border. Both Todey and Tangta were famous for cardamom production. But recently, the yield has declined heavily due to a widespread fungal disease of the plants. There is a monastery at Todey. The beautiful Rachella Peak is situated close to Tangta and is worth a visit. One can reach Rachella after six to eight hours of climbing from Tangta.
