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 Book
Eight 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 offer
Take 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.
