Tathagata offers a truly "Experiential Learning". The cottages are nestled right amidst the mountains with a beautifully scenic view. Let's not miss the hazardous walk which brings you to the cottage.... Though a bit daunting at the start, one gets used to this daily ascent and descent. Apart from being really healthy, it surely sets one thinking (a little deeper... More

Imagine waking up to the tweeting of birds and to a view of a large expanse of green overlooking a valley and Himalayas ,drinking hand brewed tea ,walking through a sun flower laden path to an open kitchen for breakfast and hiking to a river stream for a fresh dip early in the morning. There are snake like paths for... More

What do I say about this Farm ? Had been to this place with my wife in Feb 2015, and just loved it. You really need the guts to reach to this place, but once you are there, you will feel the worth of it. Navin (owner) is an adventurous person like me, and we both had good times sharing... More

We were stranded in between darjeeling n tathagata farm due to some technical defect in our car but Navin came all the way to help us with his friends.. The rooms... More

I have not seen such care for details in any hotels and home stays in India and abroad. Naveen and his team is truly dedicated, passionate and devoted to what they do. Leave the Darjeeling chaos and head to this heaven if you are in search for good food, comfort and more importantly lovely people. Tathagatha will transport you to... More

Navin Tamang is the ultimate entrepreneur - he should add master classes in the subject, to his lengthy string of talents. We were a 3 generation group of 6, searching the heritage of my grandfather, who managed the Mineral Springs Tea Estate around 1890's - 1920's. Navin was supportive, welcoming, interested and very helpful. We had a wonderful locally cooked... More

Tathagata farm located 19 kms from Darjeeling is a heavenly abode created by Mr. Navin Tamang and his brother. On getting to the place one feels close to nature from the chirping of different birds to the gentle breeze carrying aroma of fresh tea leaves from the neighboring Tukdah Tea estate. The cottage / tents are very tastefully done keeping... More

Having read the previous reviews there is not much to add that has not already been said about this gem of a place! We loved its peaceful beauty and simplicity, our gentle hardworking hosts, and the incredible insight we were given into local culture, community, ecological farming, and arguably the worlds' finest tea! Tourism at its best: interactive, educational, environmentally... More
