Netuk House, Gangtok is more than just a palatial home stay. Perched on an elevated part of Tibet Road, Netuk House is an edifice of an architecturally chanting complex with a riveting account of history and tradition. Built in the late 1950's, the house belonged to Gellong Netuk Lama, an executive counselor to the then Chogyal (Monarch). Tibet Road, as the name suggests was the principal route for travellers and traders heading up to Tibet. Most of the commuters were silk traders involved in the historic Silk Route Trade. Netuk House began offering hospitality and provided a transit point for these travellers. That marked the beginning. Even with the inevitable changes in geography, history and politics, Netuk House still stands today as a home-stay for those seeking the traditional hospitality with an opulent accommodation and food. The distinctive feature of Netuk House is perhaps the proximity to the market place, which serves an advantage for the tourists and guests.
