Gorkhey, a beautiful valley in the border of West Bengal and Sikkim. 18 km from Phalut. In the trek route of Sandakphu you have to trek 26 km for Phalut. It is end of himalayan rhododendron sanctuary which starts from Gairibas in this trek route. You can end your trek through Rammam - Srikhola to Rimbik. Another route is there to leave Gorkhey, you can take a small route of 8 km and reach Sikkim's Ribdhi.
Gorkhey is a nice valley. You can find Gorkhey khola (river stream) in this nice valley. You can capture so many photos in this valley. Unfortunately I have all my batteries exhausted in this place, and I have only one photo of this pleasant place. In this shot you can see the green valley with the huts with the backdrop of green trees. I have fallen in love with this valley. Now I am sharing this shot with you. Hope you'll like it.

Hi Subhendu, This looks more like the Alps in Switzerland than nr Bengal.. This is what I like about TE- It opens your eyes to different parts of the world. Great image and TFS Rich

That's why I love TE. We have thousands of travellers, a lot of images and good information about places we don't know. The image you present is very nice. It shows a beautiful valley, from a good point of view with attractive colors. Well done and TFS!

A beautiful place,
Good frame and strong colors.

That really is a treasure of India, so idyllic and peaceful and green. It must not be easy to visit this place, you will have to walk for some time. The accessibility most probably is one of the key reason why this place still has kept its charm. Excellent composition and execution. Well done. Thanks for your critique of my shot from Murni beach in Yan. The clouds fascinated me, so I composed the picture around them.

very picturesque and excellently composed impression of this fascinating valley. The colors are very pleasant and harmonious. Most of all I like how the houses are spread around! TFS!
josepmarin (58031) 2010-04-26 8:28
the presence of the traditional architecture warns us that this is not an Alpine European valley, but we can enjoy his great natural beauty.
The good high POV gives us a good depth of image in a composition full of very attractive details.
A nice work, my friend.

Hi Subhendu ,
a very lovely forest well shown in good vantage point. the place must be very peaceful and exciting.
good aerial view with houses and farm in great details and features.
Well presented shot in a nice light.
Longroute (19396) 2010-04-27 8:56
Actually it looks like an Alpin Valley and not India at all! (at least the India I have known).
The intense light gave you a strong contrast but anyway the whole image is quite enjoyable, there is a good sense of depth and the whole scenery is first class.
Angshu (56666) 2010-04-28 8:58
Thanks for introducing this place I've never heard before...Very nice valley with your high POV allowing us to see the depth, with the houses contrasting with the green. Must be a wonderful place...asha kori arekbar giye aro bhalo chhobi upohar debe amader
