Tinchuley is a small mountain village in Darjeeling district. Tinchuley is an offbeat hamlet situated close to the West Bengal-Sikkim border. The word Tinchuley means Three Ovens (Tin Chullas). This such name to the village has been given because of the three prominent hilltops that surround the place and which from far look like Ovens or Chullas.
