I loved the locale mainly because if one hiked a little away from the hotel, the trail embraces you with a canopy of rhododendron trees, that douses you in chilly morning sunshine. golden evenings || I spent my first evening at Baker's Cafe, and after enough coffee & cake, I started scouting various travel agencies, talking to local drivers in MG Road in a quest to find the cheapest commute and rates, for the next few days. dreamy winding roads straight out of a Ruskin Bond book a tea-scented daydream Early next morning I left for Namchi, the first stop being Temi....

Weekend Getaways from Temi  

Best time to visit - March,April,May,June,October,November,December
One would assume that Thimphu is still settling into its role as the capital of one of the happiest countries in the world, Bhutan. Simple at heart, grappling with growing commercialisation, Thimphu is bustling with energy and is the heart of the country. Thimphu is a delight to explore if history interests you and also if you want a break from the quiet and serenity of Bhutan. Brimming with cafes, nightclubs and restaurants, the city welcomes people from all over the world with open arms. While here, do check out Changangkha Lhakhang, one of the oldest temples in Bhutan, the National Folk Heritage Museum which offers a peek into the life of the Bhutanese people, especially the rural way of life. There are tons of parks, gardens and galleries in and around Thimpu and you cover most of these in a single day depending on your interests. The exhibits here range from archaic to contemporary and are definitely worth taking a look at.

About Temi

Also interspersed with a multitude of pathways, you would be happy to get lost in, one can start walking to the nearby villages of Doling, Barfung, Bakhin and Mambru to get a modest peak into the pastoral, self-contained way of living, in southern Sikkim. Don't leave without a leisurely stroll and a few too many cups of tea at the Temi tea garden.Straight out of Rudyard Kipling's Jungle BookEight kilometres away from the village lies the Maenam Wildlife Sanctuary, that sustains over 200 species of our winged friends. Some beauties that bird-watchers and curious travellers should keep an eye and camera out for are, the green magpie, brown wood owl and the exquisite fire-tailed myzorni.Cuisine on offerTake a bite or more, of zhero, a deep-fried snack made out of wheat. The lesser known staple of nettle soup or Sishnu, should also be given a try. And then of course, the illustrious flour dumplings or momos, filled with minced meat or vegetables and thukpa, the Tibetan soupy noodles should be gorged upon at the roadside shacks of the Kewzing bazaar.When to go
