This is a green haven. From the verandah you have breathtaking views of densely green mountains; a little trek down and you have the gurgling river. Gyatso and Samsay are the perfect hosts, feeding your body and your soul with their hot nourishing meals and stories of the land.
The homestay is located down on the mountain side, so people who have trouble climbing or walking should be careful... Also there are no attached toilets. Wasn't too much of an issue but it helps if one is mentally prepared.
I would love to go back in different seasons, and strongly recommend this for people who want a quiet, non commercial experience.
