We came to Tathagata farmstay straight from Varanasi and 3 months travelling India. It was exactly what we needed before heading on to Delhi. We were lucky enough to be sharing the farm with two families from Darjeeling who we later met in the town and shared some fond memories. Navin is fantastic. His knowledge of organic farming and the mineral springs tea co-operative he helped to set up around his farm is so interesting. He is a great host. He tunes into your needs. If you want to relax and explore alone, he somehow knows. If you feel like something more organised he'll arrange a guide to take you on a tour of the local area and after a swim in the river, you'll end up at a neighbour's house sipping the local brew. He'll keep you on your toes. One lazy afternoon we were collected by his farmers to help them milk the cows. It really is a must do. Our four days at the farm were worth EVERY rupee. Thanks Navin!!!!
