    Borong Nature Camp is one of the most best places to stay in Borong. The view of the Himalayas is marvelous, and the rooms are so clean and cozy. The staff are super kind and caring. They provide food that will remind you of your childhood.

    If you’re looking for a place to feel at peace, this is it. Borong Nature Camp provides all that is there to connect with yourself. I stayed here for a week (staycation due to some unavoidable circumstances), met some of the finest people and experienced some of the most peaceful moments of my life. I will most certainly visit here again when I need to do some soul searching.

    The extra star is solely for the view. Location: It is a remote location and no bones are made about it being otherwise. As predictable in Sikkim, after a point the roads become bad. Someone mentioned Google map not giving the correct location and that is correct information. Property: My lasting impression is that low investment was a priority when putting together the property. The ragged furniture in the dining area, the way the kitchen is kept, the maintenance of the grounds, the material used to put together the rooms...all have given this impression. Rooms and maintenance: The first room we were shown to had bare minimum leg space, no storage space and no basin in the bathroom (It is installed outside the room). The room needed cleaning. The room we finally shifted into (We had the luxury of choosing because the other guests hadn't arrived) had more leg room, storage and basin inside the bathroom (It's funny how relieved such a basic thing made us!). A couple of the rooms we had looked into made us feel bad for whoever would have to be there. Food: On arrival, the lunch was just edible. We were expecting homely food but cooked by someone who knows how to cook. On speaking to the girl employed there, I learnt she was the cook for that meal and it was one of the few times she had ever cooked. At that point, we were searching for a positive spin to our stay at Borong Nature Camp. We found it & were thankful that we had booked for 1 night only! Having said that, dinner and breakfast were better experiences. Not great, just better. Service: The locals employed don't seem to have too long an experience that managing a place like this well, needs. They were dealing with their work in the way their limited experience had taught. During the time we spent there, no one of "manager" stature was there. So, if something needed looking into, there wasn't an experienced person to talk to. We handled what we could. The place is run in the same way many others are where the owner or manager is not present. The only saving grace is the view that is outside the window when one wakes up in the morning.

    Rooms ware not so clean. Toilets were very small and dirty, which is practically not usable, gyser was not working even during in the month of January. After informing the same to management, neither they respond properly, nor arranged hot water for us. Moreover they behaved most rudely.. Food was worst, complete tasteless. The cook, and the local management staff got irritated and became angry after complaining about the food quality. No room service available. Not served required quantity of food also after paying their scheduled charges. Overall service and staff's behavior are very bad, rooms, toiles, foods are also very bad, location is ok
