Kalimpong is a land of untold stories, with mild colonial charm and modern Nepali people it is the only city in this region which has been able to keep itself safe from over-commercialization. Kalimpong was a part of the Silk route and was able to attract many Englishman and Scottish missionaries to settle such as Dr. Gram Homes and British. Rev. W. Macfarlane. This ecological hotspot, one of only three among the Ecoregions of India has a rich variety of Flora and Fauna. Located on he hills of Dello, right at the beginning of the forest, our host Rabten will take you around for forest walks.

The most magnificent part of the hills of North Bengal and Sikkim is the view of Mt. Kanchenjunga (second highest peak of the world), and imagine waking up to a view like this every morning. If you are looking for a traditional Tibetan experience like  never before this is the homestay you should choose.

We were planning a trip in January very late, clueless of where to go and how to get on with the bookings. Thanks to Live Away Homes for organising and executing an awesome trip for the 5 of us in no time.

Visited this place in January, I’ve been to kalimpong, but I’ve never encountered such beautifully located place before. Beautiful because the stay is well equipped with all the necessary amenities , the host name: Rabten and his family was really home-like, friendly, warm, very adjusting, the location is peaceful and clam.

Reasons why you should visit them:

1. Great food; served hot and fresh.

2. Happy and homely hosts.

3. You’ll be taken for forest walk. Experience adventure and breath fresh air.

4. You can have an amazing time around the bonfire in the chilly nights, with some deliciously cooked chicken starters.

5. You can have a peaceful time, enjoying the serenity and soaking in the calmness holding a cup of hot coffee in the balcony, overlooking Kanchenjunga peaks.

6. You can also try their home-made organic wine. Flavours available are Pineapple and Plum.

You’d definitely want to go back and visit them again to relive the good times. 😊

A great place to be with your friends or family. You’re going to have a good time. 😊

Honestly I did not have any idea about what is home stay, so was not sure what to expect from the place but the more time I had spent the more my expectations had grown.
Beginning with very first encounter with the host I must acknowledge his wide & warm welcome smile that took our fatigue away. Gradually we had our homely lunch that too on the roof overlooking kanchenjangha ( parden for my spelling) and took some rest by smelling pollution free fresh air. In the evening I experienced my first ever bonfire with chicken and some liquor which just blown my head more than the liquor. The bonfire in that 5 degree temperature was like a glass of water to a man in the middle of a desert where the host gave us a bonus by telling the history of kalimpong. It was truly an amazing experience and I must complement its cleanliness which made me felt like in Switzerland.
We had spent two days along with a trekking experience and bonfire. Every tiny details of this trip made me happy and I would be happy to be happy again by visiting this place again.
