When we decided we need a small break from our daily suffocating city life to inhale some fresh oxygen and to get rejuvenated , we decided to go to the mountains…where freshness in all forms are in abundance. Right at that time we came across a place in a magazine called “ Tathagata Home Stay “ in a small village... More

Staff were helpful and carried our backpacks down to the farm from the road. Each morning a delightful pot of fresh Darjeeling tea was brought to our door once we woke up. Naveen was an excellent host with many specialties for us to try. He showed us around the farm, and we harvested some fresh ginger and mandarins.The young men... More

Rather than stay in one of the colonial hotels in Darjeeling, which seem to have very mixed reviews, we wanted a rustic and authentic Indian experience and chose Tathagata Farm. This is eco tourism at its very best and the owner, Navin, clearly values each customer, investing considerable time with each one. His customer care extends to arranging treks, tours... More

After experiencing a wonderful, well organised 5 day hike, viewing amazing vistas from Mane bhanjang to RimTek, organised by Navin Tamang, we arrived at Tathagata Farm for a few days well deserved rest. What a reward it was. Navin and his team were brilliant, they were attentive without being obtrusive. We were fortunate to stay in the exotic tent accommodation,... More

We had a wonderful experience at Tathagata farm. We were six (three couples) and because of time constraints spent only one day there. But we liked the place, food, tea, and wandering in nearby places. If you are found of tracking, wheat beer(local drink made of wheat) or want to buy darjeeling tea then farm owner(Praveen Ji) can arrange it... More

Navin and his crew applies personal touch to hospitality. They brought hospitality to the next level. everything you eat and taste is source locally from his or surrounding farms. Expect 100% organic food, herbs and tea. The day trip to hike up the farms, visiting different farmers and hiking trips are just out of this world. If you are looking... More

Brilliant hospitality, the most delicious food, the best hand-made 100% organic tea, serene location in the outskirts of Darjeeling are only some reasons why one should make it a point to spend a couple of nights in this beautiful place. Navin & his team are the most charming and hospitable you'll ever come across. No wonder I've asked everyone I've... More

My friends and I had the pleasure of staying at Tathagata farm for three nights in late June. This small organic farm/tea estate provided us with a tranquil atmosphere for us to relax and take in the boundless greenery and stunning vistas. At times when we felt more adventurous the farm was ideally located for day trekking of variable difficulty.... More

I had the pleasure of spending a few short days at the ultimate relaxation retreat. It's not pretentious, but offers what you want, comfort, tranquility and good service. I found Navin and staff friendly, interested and helpful. To get but a few days away from India's bustling towns in a neat package of hills, prayer flags, tea gardens, local produce,... More
