Pedong is a picturesque hamlet surrounded by pine forests. It is situated 20 km from Kalimpong in West Bengal. Pedong commands magnificent views of the snow ranges of Mount Kanchenjunga. It falls on the ancient Silk Route that connected Tibet with India through the Jelep La Pass. Several short and thrilling treks originate from Pedong leading to the Damsangdugi Fort, a historically important site that witnessed a long ethnic war between the Lepchas and Bhutias. A 300 year old ruin hidden by dense forest at Damsangudi still holds memories of the reigns of the Lepcha kindom.
