A two-hour flight from Delhi and a pleasant drive through lush bamboo groves is going to bring you to a pretty, rustic farmhouse, built way back in 1833. This place, called Yangsum Heritage Farm, in Sikkim, should be your destination for at least five days, for that much-needed time away from your hectic, wearisome lives. The homestay is run by a couple who not only take care of this pretty mountain farm, but also act as guardians of the pine and chestnut forests surrounding the property.
Vacay The Sikkimese Way | The five wood paneled rooms, made in typical Tibetan style, will give you all them rustic feels and are perfect for cuddling in with a racy book and some piping hot coffee. And here’s the best part about this heritage farmhouse - in addition to lush green forests, a number of plants are grown here, like paddy, maize, potatoes, ginger and turmeric. You’ll also find seasonal veggies being grown, like cauliflower, cabbage and peas. So if you love gardening or have the proverbial green thumbs, this place is a must-visit!
Once here, you’ll get a chance to explore Buddhist culture and dig into local food, like Sikkim cheese and nettle soup, that are delicacies here. And after you’ve had a filling Sikkimese lunch, head over for a nature walk, a long, winding trek, a session of serene bird watching or even an adventurous bout of white water rafting!
Basically, go get your bookings done, pack your bags and make your way to paradise!
