This rustic homestay lies on the outskirts of West Sikkim. A panoramic view of the Kanchendzonga range will greet your eyes as you step into the threshold of this property. It is cozy, charming and almost other-worldly and the only way to experience it is to immerse yourself into the scenic beauty it has to offer.
Activities like bird-watching and exploring the flora and fauna in the vicinity add to the place. For travelers, nature-lovers, writers and people looking for off-beat, rustic charm, this particular homestay offers a tranquil respite to everyone.
It goes without saying that we have a farm where we grow our own vegetables and fruits and serve special organic food only. It is an expansive ancestral property which has been tended with care as it houses a large orchard with about 100 different breed of oranges, 4 different types of avocados, guava trees, kiwis and strawberries across the land.
During season, one can even indulge in activities like fruit plucking, plantations, harvests etc. The guests are encouraged to try new things and participate as per their interest.
Be our guest and experience a one of a kind vibe at this rustic homestay.
