Very sadly our flights from the UK were delayed so we arrived 2 days later than planned - Navin, the owner is amazingly accommodating and did his best to rearrange all our activities so we managed to do what we'd originally planned but in half the time. All the same I want to return to do them again without being in such a rush .... The farm has the best food in India (after staying at Tathagata we went to some of the top, most expensive restaurants in Calcutta and Tathagata Farm is better) - it's all 100% fresh and cooked in front of you. We were given a huge selection of delicious dishes brought to the table to share - no decisions to make, we were given what would normally amount to a whole menu. Different every day for every meal. The fabulous dishes keep on coming at both breakfast and dinner - and even lunch, if required. Navin could easily be a celebrity chef; there's a best seller cook book waiting to be written. If we had had longer, he would have given us a cooking demo/lesson. The activities are fab. The walks are amazing - we went to the border of Sikkim which took about 4 and a half hours and with quite a challenging uphill part, wonderful views, wonderful wild flowers even in December. When we got there the border patrol gave us lunch - very simple, cooked on gas stove but charming (normally lunch comes from over the bridge in Sikkim but the place was closed). We had to do a shortened version of the village walk but that would be incredible too - must return to finish it. The fishing trip is lovely - a lovely walk down to the river which is beautiful with lots of rocks so you can walk to the other side and lie on them while listening to the water flow and (in my case) watching the others fish. Very relaxing. December weather was T shirts in the middle of the day, especially when walking, and cold at night. Before and after dinner we sat round the blazing camp fire playing charades - take lots of layers for the evening and definitely pyjamas for bed! The rooms are very clean and have all you need. Simple and basic but perfect. Taking a shower with a bucket of nearly boiling water is an invigorating experience, very quick and certainly warms you up. Navin is a generous host, a natural storyteller and mine of information. He will accommodate you in whatever you want to do. The tea tasting was super informative.... I cannot recommend Tathagata farm highly enough.

We were greeted by the wonderful staff Rajesh and Srijana for our whole stay. Hospitality by the two staff was excellant and went beyond forth to stay till mid-night serving us good food and drinks as we had arrived late. Its the perfect getaway from city life and perfect for soul enrichment. Very happy with my stay and staff

This is a hidden gem in the middle of the jungle. feels like heaven once you reach there. Road is pretty steep and advised not to do a self-drive. The farm owners are very friendly and helpful and they will arrange a pick-up (at cost) through their regular cab drivers network who are expert in driving in this roads. Also GPS stops working from almost 10 kms ahead so ensure that you reach there early during the day. Great rooms and super arrangement.

We had a lovely time at this fine farm; We never felt that we would come to harm! A tea estate down in a valley, From B'dogra Airport you must rally! By driving through the mountain mists And down again with twist on twist. You wake up to the sound of birds And foggy vistas clouding words. A tray of tea and lounging chair A lowing cow without a care. Now we know it's the Gurkhas who Possess the fabled Xanadu!

The place is a heaven. It is nestled in the hills, away from the crowd of the city. Naveen and Praveen are the perfect host, they not only take immense care of the property so that the rooms & cleanliness meets your expectations but they also ensure that you feel at home in their abode. For Nature lovers this is a paradise, the Deck that they have offers amazing views and complete serenity. My family spent an entire day reading , talking and gazing into infinity on that deck. They serve home cooked and home grown food, which is a relief from the oily & spicy hotel food that you usually get. The staff is courteous and will ensure you have a nice time. Activities There is a small stream close to their property, about 10 min walk in the hills. They also have a Swimming pond (yes, not pool ! Naveen insists :) ) You can go for walks around the farm or to the nearby villages. All in all a perfect place to spend quality time with your loved ones or alone just enjoying the tranquility. We were there for 2 nights and wished we had stayed longer. Definitely a place we'd like to visit again.
