We recently visited this place during Christmas 2016 and this has been one of the most amazing places we have ever visited.

If you want to truely experience Sikkim, this is the place to visit. This is the essence of Sikkim packed in one place. Rest of the hotels and places we visited though beautiful, were tourist places. This felt like experiencing true Sikkim. Apart from natural beauty of the thick wall of forest as you look out of your room window, beautiful oranges hanging on the farm tree, mountains and sound of flowing river which is mesmerizing, true friendship we developed with Gyatso and Samsay was very very special.

Food made by Samsay everyday, along with variety of pickles she makes, was very tasty. Every evening we used to sit outside around bonfire with Chi and different guests and Gyatso and talk on various topics. It is an experience I would like to get every year!

If you are vising Sikkim mark this place as "must visit".

The mystical Land of Dzongu should not be missed on any trip to sikkim.
This is a laid back place with some amazing locales.
Down flows the mighty rongyoung river whose sound is therapeutic.
Want to see Kanchenjunga, forget pelling dzongu fulfills it.
There's a hot spring in the vicinity and yu get a steam bath for ₹20.
The biodiversity mesmerises yu everytime yu look at nature as far yu can see alpine forests and snow capped mountains but yu are staying in subtropical forests with orange trees all around.
And Also yu get to know about the indigenous people of the region - the Lepchas.
Gyotso doesnt fail to impress. He ignites a bonfire daily and also many conversations.
His wife, Samsey makes some amazing local foods and is a very sweet woman.
Their kids and pets also lighten up the place.
Special thanks to his 14 year old nephew Samdup for being our guide and companion and cheering us up all through our walks and hikes.
Land of Dzongu is an undiscovered heaven which should be there in your itinerary if yu are coming this side of the country.

While the natural beauty is amazing it is the hospitality of Gyatso & Samsay & the insight of the Lepcha culture that makes this so special. The rooms are comfortable, bathroom not ensuite but fine. If you want a true cultural experience that very few travelers to Indai experience, highly recommend.

Room Tip: end room by deck

Mayal lyang,as the name suggests in Lepcha Is a truly hidden gem. We stayed here for 2 nights and it was an amazing experience,almost surreal and dreamlike. The sound of the Rongyung river flowing below is so soothing and makes for a great sleeping drug. The views of Virgin mountains all around gives one a sense of how small and insignificant we are in comparison. Here is where one finds the true meaning of living with nature and living off the land. All the modern rage to go organic at a heavy price seems so fake when one truly tastes the produce grown here. Gyatso and his ever charming wife Samsay are truly wonderful hosts and Samsay has magic in her hands when it comes to cooking. Wild orchid stir fry,Buckwheat pancakes and pork to name a few of her dishes. Their two adorable children Adon and Deejon along with their pets Sweetie,City and Teetu make the stay so much more endearing. Suraj and Gamy add true value to the place in terms of service and company. I would certainly love to go back for a longer stay.

Room Tip: Ask for rooms at the front of the house near the sit out.
