Mayal Lyang (hidden forest in the lepcha language) is well out of the way. If you want cell phone reception, you have to walk up to the main road. If you want 3G, you have to walk up to the monastery.
Gyatso Lepcha and his family were amazing hosts. The food is delicious, simple and homemade. We had long conversations about the lepcha people of Sikkim and the politics of the area.
There are some great walks away from the property down to the river at the bottom of the valley and up to the monastery.
Things to do nearby include swimming in various streams and waterfalls, short hikes, visit to a natural hot spring.More
