One of the main reasons to check in to Greendale Residency as it was at a walking distance to the market area. I was greeted by courteous staff at the reception. The highlight of the experience was of course the room with a view of Mt. Kanchenjunga, the third highest mountain peak in the world!
The room was very clean and nicely decorated. The bathroom was spacious with hot shower. To my surprise I had wifi connectivity right in my room! The room had art works of local traditions and Buddha which gave it a nice aesthetic touch. What I did notice particularly in the room was the attention given to environment friendly practices like conservation of water, protecting the mountain environment etc. It was indeed good to know that some people actually walk the talk.
The restaurant is pure vegetarian and had some interesting veg options. The ‘jalebi’ as a desert for dinner was indeed a delight to savor. It also has a cute little bar called “TaatoPaani”, apparently it means hot water in the local language.
They played Buddhist chants in the evening which was almost meditative with the Buddha paintings and incense sticks burning.
The travel desk provide local sight seeing packages which was plus for me.
