Teedi, a heaven in the foot of the mountains of Darjeeling. The place is not posh like any other hotel rooms, but the experience is way more the worth. Aashna and Utsow are great host. The best part was the home grown veg food prepared by Aashna. Total yum. Utsow was totally helpful in terms of guiding us around the place and helping us roam. We made new friends like Reheman, Kristie, Nadaine & Antonio. We also met a lil chap Minal who was a package of cuteness. We learnt loads of stuff on wastage reuse in a brilliant manner. We trully appreciate the initiative taken by these guys to save the environment. We did activities like local trek with local home made food, farm tour and market shopping. Overall the experience, the place & the food was completely amazing.

Tieedi is a place of pristine beauty, a fresh gush of rejuvenation.
Firstly, the place is well located and the Hosts takes perfect care right from your transport till you get perfectly settled in your own free kingdom. The moment you enter Tieedi, you get cut off from the hustle and bustle of your daily mundane life and enter into a world where you discover your own self.
Utsow and Ashna take utmost care of you in every possible way, right from serving tasty home cook food till lighting up a fire in your room to keep you warm besides serving you bed tea.
The mud hut is a must stay for every nature lover. Sitting on the veranda in a mud hut and listening to the gurgling sound of the river flowing beneath, the deafening silence at times, the murmuring of the wind brushing against the trees will enthrall you. The place will beckon you like a mirage.

Utsow, Ashna, and everybody around them made for an absolutely delightful and inspiring stay in the forest. We went trail running in the mountains, learned a ton about permaculture, and ate delicious food. I would recommend staying here to anybody who wants to connect more deeply with nature and be surrounded by beautiful people.

Hey Alex!

Thank you! It was such a pleasure to meet you. Our morning runs in the forest trails and the evening conversations are something that we will cherish for a long time. Hope our paths cross again.

Take care my friend and May the Forest Be With You Always! :)

It was our first time that we lived in a homestay. It had homely feeling and the surrounding was covered in forest

We stayed in the hut which is 10 minutes of a walk down from the rest of the accommodation in Tieedi. It is between the forest and has a stream passing by near the hut. The soothing sound of the river is experienced everytime of the day. A well served and delicious organic food with the best tea. they have a good variety of tea which has benefits added for the body. They are working on the permaculture project and giving the best to the people and nature.

We are so, grateful to Utsow and Ashana for rejuvenating the place for the travellers.
The hut is made from mud it was a cozy and beautiful stay.
Our overall experience was fantastic, and we enjoyed the hospitality of the family of Tieedi.

Thank you Ankita!

It was such a joy to meet and interact with your wonderful family. The enthusiasm of your Mom and Dad at their age is an inspiration for all of us. We hope to see you guys again sometime soon. Take care and May the Forest Be with You!

Sometimes in life, we come across a spark which works to transform you. Staying at TIEEDI with Aashna and Utsao along with their extended family of volunteers and pets is one such sparkling and alchemy experience.

Here, they are not just talking about big ideas/activism, they are leading by example and we are fortunate to help sustain and grow that idea.

Living in/with nature almost completely cut off from surroundings is also a profound spiritual experience. The warmth and hospitality is infectious.

Keep up with the good work and slowly the world will notice its bigger results !

PS: Rocket mass heater needs to go live from its experimental stage :) Also, it would be better to have a wider bed for couples.
If blankets were not around, it would have been very difficult.

Room tip: Go for mud dwelling to experience nature !

Thank you Nilesh!

It was a pleasure to host you and we cherish the conversations that we shared.

P.S.: Thank you for your feedback on the rocket mass heater and the bed size. We will work on setting them right.
