I had been planning for Tathagatha Farm Stay since the last 2 years and finally I made it this year.In the beginning I was a little skeptical about the idea because my visit happened to fall in July which is Monsoon in Darjeeling and the season is an absolute discouragement for anyone to travel in the region. But I was wrong. When we reached the farm I felt that what on the earth was preventing me from coming to this wonderful place for so long. Beautifully set in the huge plot of land with lofty trees, flowers and various plants, the property flaunts the beauty of simplicity. Blessed by the nature in bountiful you could spot birds all over around, butterflies unimaginatively variant in size and the color. The moment I reached this place I was so overwhelmed with the excitement, thrill in my heart. A warm welcome by Mr Nabin, the co-owner of the property, and his cheerful and amicable staffs followed by lunch prepared in local style and then later a ramble to the village with him investigating the local life were the activities we started with. Every little or big activities I could witness or get engaged in , from village tour to hike to the river or drinking in the pool sharing with Mr Nabin his extensive knowledge on the plants, and the locals was remarkable and exhilarating experience for me. Starting with a cup of tea and ending with the local Rakshi in three days two nights I could savor real fresh, healthy organic food, get educated on organic farming and permaculture, and foremostly enjoy my stay. Overall I had a full fun time at Tathagatha farm.
In sum I would say if one is looking for a getaway from the hectic city life for a replenishing trip then Tathagatha is an ideal place to be considered of and moreover with Navin, Mr. Fabulous your stay experience cannot be unenjoyable and without memories.
