A scenic countryside farm-stay, PaliGhar is situated at Echhey, about a 30 minute drive from Kalimpong town. It’s has two wonderful separate cottages/rooms surrounded by a lush green farm, overlooking the mountains. Guests can have access to wonderful walks, treks and village visits in this amazing region of Northeast India. It offers the discerning traveler offering an authentic, rustic and comfortable experience of Nepali culture, heritage and cuisine. With a mission to safe guard the rapidly dying art of traditional buildings, the cottages of Palighar was inspired as well as executed with locally available materials. Each mud brick to beams were hand-made by local craftsmen.

The two rooms have been beautifully decorated with a genuine understanding of the rural life yet thoroughly keeping in mind comfort and quality service. We also aspire to provide utmost attention to our guests whilst keeping in mind the sustainability of the local resources. If you want to get away from it all, enjoy walking and more immersive experiences – then this is the place for you. Highly recommended to anyone who prefers nature and unique experiences.

Places of Interest

  • Village walk around the property:  We have identified few village walks originating from PaliGhar. 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 PaliGhar 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
