Tarey Bhir is located near the small beautiful village called Sadam which falls on the route between Melli( Sikkim) and Namchi, It is 14 km from Melli which takes about an hour drive. The place is a natural wonder, a perfect place for the people who love adventure. Bhir in a local Nepali language means cliff, and as the name depicts is 3500 feet cliff into the abyss.
The pathway is constructed over the edge of the ridge which is about 4 km long which makes it looks like the great wall of China. It is a thrilling experience to walk along the ridge but should be very careful walking down the steep staircases, the walkways are thankfully guarded with the metal railings for the safety of the visitors.
It is worth walking all the way down to the small temple dedicated to Lord Shiva at the end, but save your breath for the uphill trekking while returning back. It is therefore not advisable to go beyond the temple for the ridges are unguarded from this point.
The pathway offers the magnificent panoramic views of the mountains, rivers and small villages. The pine forest on the other side of the walkways makes the place more interesting. The dense forest around Tarey Bhir is also a house for some wild animals and birds, the visitors can often spot the rare wild mountain goats, Bharals grazing on the steep cliff face.
There are some small tea stalls near the entrance where visitors can enjoy tea, coffee and momos. Very nominal entry fee is collected at the counter, the fund raised is used for beautification and the maintenance of the place.
There are few homestays at a nearby village Sadam for the visitors who wish to stay overnight. Tarey Bhir is among the least visited places in Sikkim, the government should take an initiative in order to boost up the tourism of the place.
