    We stayed one night here and I would love to have stayed longer. The family were very kind, and it was very inspiring to see such a beautiful home and small farm created by their love and care and hard work. The facilities are all very typical of the area, and beautiful food, hospitality, vegetable garden, flowers etc. Our favourite place to stay in all of out trip to India and Sikkim.

    Lovely family, quiet homestay, excellent food and super clean room. Being able to share a few days here is totally recommended if you want to live an authentic experience. Possibility of trekking to the surroundings, enjoy the sunrise, rest, learn from the collaborative village and walk to the lake.

    Sonam & Kinjan have got such a wonderful family that makes you feel so welcome. We learnt loads from them, particularly about Sikkim. The location is up on a hill above the lake within a small tight-knit community and is super picturesque! Kinjan’s food was also unbelievably good! Every meal was different, organic and delicious. I couldn’t recommend this place highly enough!

    My stay at Sonam's was amazing! A quiet location in a small village on the hill, wonderful hosts and one of the best cools of India made the experience perfect ^^ The rooms are a bit barebone, but that didn't bother me at all. A great place to come to relax in peace and quiet 🏔️
