Location- Beautiful you are on a foothill and Can see Darjeeling lights from there. Amid nature its just serene. Approach road to the place is not great. But its developing. Hospitality at the farm is great complete personal service and food made to order and fresh. The walking tour arranged by them is great.

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

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.
