Yangsum Heritage Farm
Reviewed 4 November 2016

We were immediately made to feel at home in this truly excellent homestay. The room was an amazing round wooden chalet like building with views over the whole of the Himalaya mountain range in West Sikkim. It was large, clean, charming and with a perfect bathroom. The food was delicious and very varied, including edible orchids, and a lot of the produce from the farm. Thendup, the owner, couldn't have been nicer. He treated us like royalty, and with huge kindness, especially as we arrived from Delhi with Delhi Belly! We stayed here 6 days before going on a trek to Donzgri, and again two days after. I can but recommend it.

This rustic farm style homestay has beautiful large rooms simply furnished with wood pannelling and traditional charm. My roundhouse room had almost 360 degree views of the surrounding mountain ranges - wake up looking out on Kanchenjunga! Great traditional sikkimese meals served in lovely dining room also wood pannelling. Rate is all inclusive and they will send you a packed lunch for hikes and excursions to nearby attractions.

Room Tip: Roundhouse room with views to Kachenjunga

Far away from the maddening city life and tucked away into the lap of nature lies the Yangsum Heritage Farm near the town of Rinchenpong. Its location enables a clear view of the Mt. Kanchenjunga from its gazebo as well as some good options for nearby village walks over the hills.

Thendup and his team (Manoj, Sayban, Yukila, apologies for not remembering the names of others) ensure that you are given the right information to plan your itinerary around the place as well as making your stay in their farm cottages comfortable. There are four cottage structures in all at the property - one in which the resident team stays in while the remaining three structures accommodate the guests. The cottage rooms are sparsely yet tastefully furnished with attached toilets.

While not offering an 'a la carte' choice, the food during breakfast and meals is very likely to appeal to the taste buds of the guests. It is recommended that the farm is kept as a base location and half day / full day trips or morning / afternoon treks are undertaken to take in the beauty of the nearby surroundings.

Key takeaways are:-
1. West Sikkim is not yet as frequented by tourists as the Eastern part of the state (mainly Gangtok). This offers the required blend of solitude and the feeling of having the nature's bounty all to yourself.
2a. The farm property is located amongst a lot of vegetation and as such one needs to be okay with tolerating the occassional encounters with the wildlife. Over here I am referring to something more scary than the big cats - spiders, insects, leeches et al :-)
2b. The farm property is not a luxury resort - hence no TV, swimming pool or a gym/ club house. However, being in West Sikkim one would hardly want to stay indoors given the inviting outdoors!
3. The terrain being mountainous and the road conditions being what they are, covering more than 15-20 kms in one hour would be highly improbably. Hence planning day trips to nearby places need to be factored in accordingly.
4. Some nearby places for sightseeing include:- the Pemayangtse monastery, Rabdentse ruins & Khechopalri lake near Pelling (approx. 65 kms away); Buddha park, Maenam hill near Ravangla. One can also undertake good walks on the nearby hills in the direction of towns such as Legship.
5. In case of any questions / support needed for deciding on where to go during the stay, seeking Thendup's and his team's advice would considerably help.

Overall, we had a great experience and would love to visit the place again!

This home stay was recommended by a friend of a friend (thank you Pema) I was immediately made welcome and a young lady of the family back on break from University has aleady taken me for a walk around the local homesteads that are a part of this hillside. On return from my walk I was offered filter coffee which I am drinking now and it is yummy. The Octagonal cottage room is huge and smells of the beautiful wood it was built from. Immaculately clean and now time for a shower. A must for any visitor to West Sikkim!

Room Tip: The Octagonal Cottage will have views of kangchenjunga when the cloud clears
