Arrival in Bagdogra - Kalimpong

On arrival in Bagdogra you will be picked up by our driver and will commence driving to Kalimpong. It is important to know that the road conditions in the hills are not very friendly so it is best to break the journey in Kalimpong on your way to Gangtok. Enjoy an evening with the view of the Kanchenjunga range (on clear evenings).


Kalimpong - Gangtok - Agapi Farms (North Sikkim)

The drive after bypassing Gangtok gets both very scenic and peaceful, leaving the crowds of Gangtok behind, with the conifer and the fern trees lining up the road with small monasteries. Our homestay here is in the historic village of Kabi and the family would be more than happy to guide you in your stay here.


Agapi Farm Stay - Local experiences

Spend an entire day away from the crowds, visiting local villages and monasteries and taking a nature walk in the evening. Enjoy a traditional North Sikkim dinner cooked by your hosts.


Agapi Farms - Nettle and Fern (Pelling)

After a leisurely breakfast drive towards West Sikkim and to its scenic town Pelling. Your stay here overlooking the Kanchenjunga range is run by Naresh and his able team. Enjoy a drink in the evening in its cozy restaurant.


Nettle and Fern - Local experiences

Explore the town and indulge in some local lunch on your stroll. Later in the evening enjoy a leisure hike in the vicinity of Nettle and Fern.


Nettle and Fern - Kaleege House (Takdah)

From one mountain ridge to another, our journey today will take us back to the hills of Bengal, and to Takdah, called the land of fog in the local Lepcha language. Kaleege House would be your last homestay on this trip so make the most of the Hospitality extended by your caring hosts.


Kaleege House - Local Experiences

There are multiple activities you can enjoy in and around the property. An early morning forest trail is best to enjoy the views of the surrounding. Dinner and overnight in Kaleege house.
