The Yankee Village Retreat at Reshap (altitude 8000 feet) is literally a hidden gem tucked away in a far and cozy corner of Kalimpong.

An easy pleasurable trek or a 30 minute drive from Lava, this small but incredibly beautiful tiny hamlet Reshap, sits amidst the hidden hills of the Neora Valley which boasts of a 300 degree visibility of the Easten Himalayn range of mountains from Mt.Kharg, Kokthang, Rathung, Kabroo (North, South, Dome and Fourth), Talung, Pandim, Khang-Chen-D-Zongha, Simvo, Narsingh, Siniolchu or Sincholu and the mighty Kanchenjungha.

Play and expect yourself to be kissed by the clouds and inhale tons of fresh unadulterated air in this pristine and virginal village.

The deeply forested sorroundings of pine, birch, fir trees as well as wild orchids also offers some fantastic views of some parts of the Nathula and Jelepla passes.

All rooms are carpeted with a view and attached bath. Hot water in buckets are provided. Keeping in mind the rustic and natural sorroundings of this place, we have no Televisions in the rooms. An in-house restaurant with a telescope for viewing the mountain at close range is also available.
