The homestay is a gem of a place located strategically on the Kalimpong ridge leading to Durpin Monastery. You will fall in love with the place as you enter. The beautiful garden, thoughtfully decorated rooms and spaces, the dream catchers on the walls, choice of books, and exotic plants collection including Maples, Orchids and Bonsai!

 

The hosts are genuinely great — Gurung uncle and aunty. Mr. Gurung who is an old timer and has a treasure trove of stories about Kalimpong and its surroundings. Mrs Gurung is a fantastic cook and we enjoyed lovely home cooked meals. This place is great if you are looking to stay with a family instead of a hotel. The effort and hospitality of the Gurung’s and their personal touch highly enhances the experience.

 

The homestay is situated about 5/6 kilometres uphill from the main marketplace in Kalimpong. You can take a shuttle cab to drop you at the homestay. (Per person cost : Rs20/- for Drop at Homestay and Rs10/- for drop at Kalimpong Bazar). The road via Elgin group of Hotels to SIB Chandralok will take you to this place.
All the rooms are beautifully decorated with not so expensive items but with nice aesthetic and artistic things.

Places of Interest

  • Village walk around the property:  We have identified few village walks originating from the homestay. These walks will take you through the adjoining villages and introduce you to the rural, rustic and peaceful life beyond the hustle-bustle of cities.
  • Hiking through hotspots of Kalimpong: This first part of the hike will begin from the property and will take you uphill through villages and rural landscapes passing through an upcoming monastery and a local school. From there on we will take a short drive to Dealo, the highest point of Kalimpong.On reaching Dealo, we can walk across the ridge and if the weather is favourable, one can get a view of the majestic Kanchenjunga ranges.
  • Hike to Relli River:  Post breakfast you will be taken on a hike passing through rural landscape, forest areas and beautiful Himalayan villages. The first half of the walk would be downhill and you can get wonderful views of the hills and valley. Along the way you will get the chance to interact with local villages and enjoy the flora and
    fauna. On reaching the Relli river, you will then start to walk upstream and may wish to
    take a plunge in the numerous natural dip spots. If you come across any of the
    local people fishing using nets, you could also give that a try. After walking for a
    while, you reach Bidhyang where lunch will be served. Post lunch, you will cross a wooden hanging bridge and meet up with your vehicle which will get you back to the property.
  • Cooking lessons:  Apart from the lovely memories we bring back from each holiday, we are aware that many of us get hooked to the local cuisines and often painstakingly try YouTube videos at home. Nepali cuisines are known for their simplicity yet unique taste that lingers on for a long while. Since, Kalimpong hosts multi-cultural communities, our cuisines are a mix of Tibetan, Chinese, Indian along with the specialties of various sects of the Nepali community. At this homestay we invite our guests to join us to learn the secret recipes to authentic Nepali food that will be served. You could take no better souvenir to remind yourself of your visit to Kalimpong
