Perched at the hilltop in the Neora Valley National Park are two picturesque hamlets named Todey and Tangta which was famous for its cardamom plantation. These two villages Todey and Tangta are still hidden from most of the travelers since Tourism infrastructure is just getting developed here and there are limited tourist accommodations available. However Todey Tangta can be visited based in Bindu or Jhalong from where Todey village is about an hour drive through Paren and 3hrs treks towards Tangta from Todey.
Located at the extreme end of Indian border, adjoining the neighboring kingdom of Bhutan Todey Tangta was primarily important for large yields of cardamom. But in the recent years, the yield has declined heavily, due to some widespread fungal disease to the plants. Tangta is also well known as the gateway to the beautiful Rochelle peak. Further venture can take you to Rachella peak, which is six to eight hours climb from Tangta. Load carrying horses are available at Tangta. In Rachella there are many natural lakes. There is a quaint monastery perched at the hilltop of Todey and it consists of about 30 households. The area is also known for medicinal plants with a large medicinal garden known as Chamelidevi Ayurvedic Garden near the Village. The trek towards Tangta has the most astounding view of the adjacent valley and once you reach to this quaint hamlet the serene ambiance and the mesmerizing view will leave you spell bind. If you are feeling more adventurous you can further carry on with your trek towards the Rachelle peak or head back towards Todey while taking a dip in the natural hot water spring Dabai khola which is known for its medicinal purpose.
Bust your stress and isolate yourself from the blustering city noise while seeing the decade old church with the most astounding view of the hills in Bhutan at Todey and feel more alive and close to nature by venturing towards Tangta and rejuvenate yourself by taking a dip in the medicinal water. If you want to enjoy the beauty and serene life of a quaint place than Todey and Tangta are sure to woo your mind with the most wondrous sight of nature in its purest form.
