Darjeeling and Sikkim Trips
Below are the highlights for some of our trips we have designed for you :
DARJEELING, KALIMPONG & SIKKIM
India's forgotten Northeast - Come on a cultural journey to discover a region which has remained silent for almost a century. A region which has somewhat remained secluded from the rest of India. A region where people have developed their own brand of culture, religion and way of life.
The Singalila (Sandakphu-Phalut) trek is the most popular trek in the Darjeeling region and is also the most rewarding. The trek offers the most enthralling views along with a rich collection of flora and fauna that goes on to be an occasion for celebration to every trekker.
The most popular trekking route in Sikkim famed for superb views, floral spectacles, birds and pristine forests. The panoramic views of Mt. Kanchenjunga with other lesser known Himalayan peaks is simply spectacular !
Pick tea from the finest gardens in the World....celebrate the excitement of trekking in the Himalayas, test the rapids of the Teesta and stay in orange counties and organic farms. On the spiritual side, visit old monasteries and learn more about your past life....there is more that we add....you have to live to believe it….!!!
This trip takes you from the heartland of India to the high mountains and tea gardens of Darjeeling. It combines Sikkim which is a tiny piece of Paradise blessed with the bounties of nature and leads you further to the ‘Land of the Thunder Dragon’ perhaps, the Last Shangrila in the World !

In & Around Retreat
For those who enjoy "the sweetness of doing nothing there are several sit outs in the farm where you can easily spend your day read a book or simply just listening to the sound of streams, or the chirping of birds.
Guests are encouraged to help out in the farm, either in our organic vegetable field or herbal gardens. Take cooking lessons, undertake bamboo craft and attend meditation and yoga workshops.
There are several walks available around the farm to explore the bounty of nature or undertake moderate treks to remote mountain villages and stay with host families.
