My evenings at the Dhungay homestay sitting by the fire in the traditional kitchen of Ganesh and his family was a highlight of my visit to Sikkim. I really enjoyed their amazing food along with the magnifiecient view of their rooms.

DO plan a trip with him and also in his farm to experience the village lifestyle first hand The homestay is at a 200 meter distance from the road so be prepared for some steep but scenic climb from the road. Sikkim is very wet, so carrying raingear is essential or even a flodable umbrella.
