Tinchuley means three ‘Chullas’ or ovens. Tinchuley is a small village near Darjeeling which has become famous in recent years due to the effort of local people in developing community tourism.

the improvement of the environment of Darjeeling and its adjoining areas with active participation from the local people. The people of Tinchuley have undertaken several eco-friendly projects including the building of forest nursery, floriculture project, bio-compost manure projects, vermicompost projects, and many other such projects.
