Organic Farmstay near Darjeeling

Description

Our tranquil Darjeeling farmstay is located on 6 acres in a small village outside of Darjeeling and surrounded by farmlands, wild forests, and beautiful village scenery. We are overlooking the Relli River and the Hills of Lava, an area that is one of the most popular birding destinations in Darjeeling.

Our farmstay offers a great way to relax, unwind and enjoy the small pleasures of slow-paced country life. And a few days exploring the massive arc of mountains astride the Relli Valley can be such a rewarding experience for travelers. The vast virgin forests, which rise along the wild and uninhabited Neora Valley to the trijunction with Bhutan and Sikkim, also offer many florae from the subtropical to the near Alpine at 3100 meters.

We aim to develop the land in an eco-conscious way, using permaculture techniques, natural building techniques, growing our produce sustainably, and respecting the local culture and traditions. We also recently installed wifi and electricity to create a self-reliant communication hub from up here.

We are looking to bring people together from diverse backgrounds interested in or have experience in sustainable practices. Join us and help create an ecotourism village that imparts knowledge and experience to people, regardless of background, faith, and religion.

We have five cottages built in indigenous technique using ecofriendly materials like mud blocks, bamboo, and mud plasters, all with private balconies overlooking the serene mountain view. All our cottages have electricity and attached toilets with hot shower. We also have our natural water spring, organic vegetables, and a herb garden.

We serve dishes prepared from homegrown vegetables right out of our field, locally delivered fresh meat, and dairy products proudly produced by our cows and chicken coop.

Our ecovillage principles – self-sufficiency, zero waste, renewable power generation, organic growing, sharing, and connection to nature – have been practiced by humanity for thousands of years.

About Me

We are Sid and Vipul, and since 2015 we have been running an organic farm in Darjeeling. Both of us were lifelong city dwellers and eventually decided to live a more sustainable lifestyle closer to nature. So we finally decided to buy this farmland nearly ten years ago and learned about traditional organic farming practices. We're looking forward to welcoming guests who wish to experience a non-commercialized stay, enjoy nature, and learn about the traditional village lifestyle in this remote Himalayan region.
