We were overwhelmed with the hospitality of Gen. Jimmy Singh and his staff, as we were the only people staying here. Gurudongma guides are first-class and opened our eyes to the beauty of the area and its wonderful people. We felt privileged and humbled to visit people's homes and were so impressed with the Awake and Shine school and its... More

We spent a week in the area, trekking the beautiful valley and exploring the villages. This included homestay for 2 nights with Charles Lepcha in a... More

Just had my second visit to this great homestay where I once again had my expectations exceeded by the hospitality and accommodations. General Jimmy Singh runs a wonderful location from which to enjoy the culture and beauty of the Darjeeling/West Bengal with no attention to detail too small to be overlooked. The food is amazing and plentiful and the staff... More

Our family (my wife and 2 small children) have been coming to the Samthar Farmhouse yearly for the past four years. The people, the local school and the experience we shared have changed our lives completely. If you are looking for a rural village homestay in the himalayas, this is the place. The food by TARA was amazing and now... More

The "Farm House" provides a very special experience. Accommodation is spacious as well as attractive. All rooms have a beautiful outlook regardless of the season. The day starts with bed tea delivered to your room, with the sound of animals and birds in the background. If you wish to eat inside, you can. If you wish to enjoy the beautiful... More
