GREAT FOR

    Couples/ small groups looking to soak in the rich heritage culture of Sikkim while being in the lap of nature will absolutely love this rustic farmstay! This is the perfect place to enjoy all that’s from the region while relaxing under the soothing song of the birds and fresh mountain air.

What we love

  • In a fairly untouched part of West Sikkim, a family that’s lived in the region for generations on, has opened up it’s breathtaking acres of home to guests who’d like to experience the rich traditions, culture, heritage and cuisine of Sikkim. This rustic paradise is beautifully snuggled in the welcoming hills, offering uninterrupted views of the majestic Mt. Khangchendzogna!
  • You can’t help but fall in love with the earth infinity swimming pool cocooned by natural rocks and stones overlooking the valley and mountains beyond. Step into the azure waters and feel your nerves relax while you surrender to the powers of nature. For a bit of hydro-therapy and serious indulgence in the mountains, there’s a beautiful jacuzzi as well!
  • Each wooden suite, constructed away from the other, is an independent one or two bedroom cottage unit named and styled after various local trees and flowers. Each opens up to a an almost private garden area where one can lounge around and relax for hours on. Generous glass windows allow one to get lost in thought while enjoying the beauty of the surroundings while living and lounge areas make for perfect spaces to hang out with your partner, family/ friends.
  • During the peak winter months, the locals in Sikkim would often soak themselves in nearby hot springs, known for their medicinal and healing properties. This experience has now been re-created here in the form of menchu or hot stone bath. Age old secret ingredients known to relax the nerves and calm joint pains are collected from the forests around and released in the water while the stones are heated on fire. Soak yourselves in the hot tub for a beautiful and relaxing local experience.
  • Fresh cheese, unadulterated milk, organic vegetables, healthy and nutritious concoctions - all that and much more is what you get when you stay on this beautiful farm!

What to know

  • The best part about staying at a place managed and run by the local owners is the variety of food that you get to sample and hear all about! With Sikkim, due to its geographical location, you hit double jackpot with 3 different cuisines to sample and savour - Tibetan, Lepcha and Nepalese! Ask for a traditional Lepcha thali and please your belly with dishes such as chhurpi-ningro curry- a dish made of alpine fiddle head fern sauted with cottage cheese, iskus munta - a vegetarian dish made of squash leaves, nakima curry - local mushrooms or gundruk - a soup made from fermented mustard leaves. Wash all of this down with seychhang, a locally prepared millet-beer!
  • Within a walk of 5 to 10 minutes, one can reach the town center where every Sunday, a local market is set up. On other days, during laid back village visits, you can see little school children walk hand in hand, almost wanting to pull their rosy cheeks, while others pass you by with a fleeting smile. The family has donated land to build schools, hospitals and other developments to uplift the region, garnering a tremendous amount of respect amongst the locals.
  • Given that the owners have opened up their homes to discerning travellers, this is really a home-stay and not a hotel or resort. There are some basic house rules which you should be aware of before you book. Food is strictly not allowed in the cottages as creepy crawlies find their way into cottages with every morsel, meals are served at fixed times, water served is fresh spring water, that’s probably more hygienic than the mineral water we’re all used to, to name a few. Be alright to follow these and you’ll have a fabulous stay!
  • Internet is not available but you can tether from your phone or carry an internet dongle if you’ve like to browse the web.
