We had a very pleasant stay at The Shire, where we were looked after by Karma and his lovely mother. Before we arrived and during our stay, Karma was very helpful, booking us cars and offering sightseeing tips and advice. On our first evening we had a home cooked meal, organically sourced from the garden and local area, and it was delicious. The room and bathroom were large and clean.
Worth noting that to get to MG Marg, the main strip in Gangtok, involves a very steep 10 minute walk. It’s perfectly do-able but hard work if you're lazy!
The only downside to our stay - which had nothing to do with The Shire itself - was the cloudy weather which meant we were unable to see the mountain views. Apparently the mists can set in for weeks at a time, so good luck if you're going!More
