the space

Like many people disillusioned by city life and city schedules, the hosts of this country farm in Sikkim were itching to move back home and slow down. Luckily, they decided to share their space with you and me, and have opened a charming farm stay a little outside Gangtok in order to welcome you to one of the most beautiful parts of the country. The accommodations are built in Nepali style, with materials like wood and bamboo from the surrounding forest. Like most of our other properties, this forest home doesn’t just exist for holiday comforts but is also a fully operational organic farm bustling with activity. However, you can unwind if you so choose, and explore the mountainous landscape covered with trees and get panoramic views of Gangtok town. The cottages are built with materials from the surrounding areas, inspired by traditional Sikkimese and Nepali vernacular, and are made from local wood, bamboo, rock, dung, and mud keeping them warm in the winters and cool in the summers. Most of the materials of the home are reclaimed from the surrounding areas. Everyone at the farm stay is locally employed. The hosts are also very focused on waste management. The compost from waste generated is sent directly back to the ground, or given to a local piggery farm.

comforts

Choose between a cottage with your own private lawn, or two suites to accommodate four people at a time. Every suite has views of the surrounding foliage, mountains, forest, and more, but if you like staring at the night lights of the faraway city, we recommend taking the cottage. All rooms come with attached baths, hot water, WiFi, and basic power back up. This farm stay is operational throughout the year.

food

Congratulations, you found yourself on an organic farm. Now you get to eat super healthy meals three times a day while enjoying local recipes and ways of preparation. There is no fixed menu, but the hosts are open to accommodate you if you have any food specifications. Meals are based on seasonal produce, but 80% of the food you eat is grown right here. Sikkim is the first state in India that is fully organic as well.

ideal for

Peace and quiet amongst nature and people interested in the basics of farming. Hikers, birdwatchers, and yoga-doers will find a lot to enjoy. The property may not be ideal for people with issues of mobility, and for infants and toddlers. We don’t advise children below the age of 5 to visit.

getting there

The property is located approximately 20 kilometers from Gangtok. To get here, it involves a 20-minute hike on cobblestone/muddy paths. A locally-employed porter will receive you from the beginning of the trail and assist you with your bags till you reach the property.

things to do

Explore the farm on a specialized walk designed to showcase the abundance of produce that has been grown with so much love by the locals and the hosts. Get involved and learn how to farm as well. Other things to do: picnic by a waterfall, go birdwatching, or take long walks.

price

Prices begin at INR 4000 for two adults, inclusive of breakfast and in-house amenities.
