What we love

  • This period hotel has been home to eminent personalities! Each room has splendid views of the surrounding scenery - the mountains, pine tress and tea plantations!
  • We highly recommend a meal here during your stay. One can indulge in a unique variety of cuisines at the dining room, garden gazebo, tea lounge or in the privacy of their rooms. Definitely try the authentic Nepali dishes such as gyako soup, momos, khapsay and tongba.
  • The hospitality extended by the staff is wonderful! The welcome to the hotel is also very special, with a glass of liquor and a Tibetan scarf!
  • The main mall of Darjeeling town is just a 5 minute walk away! Step out and explore the lovely hill station on foot!

What to know

  • The games room has a carrom table, dart board and chess to keep one entertained within the hotel premises. This is great, especially for the kids.
  • There are no lifts in the hotel. For the elderly or people with walking disabilities, we’d recommend opting for a room on the ground level.
  • Free wifi is available in the lobby, just incase you need to check urgent mails.
  • It’s a pleasure to see the wooden cupboards and shelves stocked with lovely old books on every subject imaginable at different parts of the hotel. The books, along with the delightful antiques around the place and colonial decor, make this heritage hotel incredibly charming!

Bokar Monastery

Address: Mirik, District Darjeeling, West Bengal; Phone: +91 354 224 3575

Visit the serene and beautiful ​Bokar Monastery, a thriving monastic centre with nearly five hundred monks participating in a full schedule devoted to studying, practicing and sustaining the teachings of Shakyamuni Buddha. The original intent was to create a small retreat center, but because of requests, Rinpoche (a religious teacher held in high regard), began to accept monks for training.

Sit during their daily prayers and chanting or spin the prayer wheels. Try and go either in the morning or in the evening when the monks pray. Listen to them chant while the drums play in the background, an experience that’s blissfully mesmerizing. If you’re lucky, you could also watch the 7 year old Rinpoche play football with the young monks!

Mirik, Darjeeling

Visit Mirik, a picturesque place nestled in hills of Darjeeling and make a day of it! The name Mirik comes from the Lepcha words Mir-Yok which means ‘place burnt by fire’.

Sumendu Lake is a beautiful place with the gardens on one side and the pine forests on another with the mountains in the distance covered with snow including the gorgeous Mt. Kanchenjunga. The two sides of the lake are linked by an arching footbridge called Indreni Pull or the Rainbow Bridge.

Eat local chaat, go on a horse ride and end the day with a lazy shikaara ride on the lake with your loved ones.

Mirik is also known for its orange orchards and has the best climate for a particular type of orchid called Cymbidium, which fetches one of the highest prices in the world flower markets.
