About the Location
Located in the Melli subdivision of South Sikkim, the area boasts of pleasant climes throughout the year. In true Ourguest fashion, this heritage property is a standalone property but completely self-reliant with lip smacking comfort food out by the kitchen hearth and warm cozy hospitality from the host and his family!
How to Reach
The town of Melli is one of the very few places in India which is in the cusp of two States – Sikkim and West Bengal. It lies on the main National Highway 10 that connects the whole state of Sikkim with the rest of India. The farmstay is a 30 minute drive from the main highway and hence enjoys superb connectivity throughout the year to the airport/train station ( merely 70 kms) and the rest of the country.
Things to do
- ‘Tarey Bhir’
‘Bhir’ is the nepali term for cliff, and the viewing deck from here boasts of panoramic views of the confluence of the two major rivers rivers of the region -the Teesta and Rangeet. On a clear day one is able to catch the green slopes of the tea gardens of Darjeeling and the wide beautiful valley bordering Sikkim and Bengal.
- Kitam Bird Sanctuary
Kitam is a designated Bird sanctuary, and is located an hour’s drive from the Farmstay. True to its name, this is a hotspot for birding enthusiasts and one can take a tour with a guide to enjoy the diverse birdlife and ecosystem. For general visitors also, the sanctuary has some lovely walks and old temples near the river Rangeet. All these are day excursions and can make for a relaxed de-stressful day out!
- River Rafting
River rafting is always a fun and exciting activity to enjoy with friends or family and this can be experienced at the river Teesta, an hour’s drive from the Farmstay. Lying in the lower valleys, the rafting here is more calm and hence can be enjoyed by those not seeking too much of an extreme experience!
