Yangsum Heritage Farm
Reviewed 13 May 2017

Yangsum farm homestay in Sikkim is an excellent heartwarming place to stay. The view of the entire range of the Kanchengunga, the lush greenery all around, the delicious meals and helpful host and staff all make it really worthwhile.

We stayed there for 4 days in May 2017 and would go back anytime. All the rooms have their own charm and the owner is terribly helpful in making all arrangements for travel, stay and local sightseeing in Sikkim. The staff work hard, making it seem almost like a hotel and not a homestay. We noticed that some guests with children and regional preferences made difficult demands regarding food, but the staff were kind and helpful.

If I were to change anything, I would say that the food, while being delicious is too oily. Other than this, I would insist that nothing changes in Yangsum farm.

We made an impulsive decision and cut short our stay in Gangtok by a day to visit this farmhouse before heading to Barsey. It was just the right decision! We were awestruck at the simplicity and the beauty of the place. The host , Mr. Thendup, is extremely courteous & very hospitable. The staff, equally hospitable. A very polite staff member took us on an exhilarating 2 hour walk around the farm in the mountains.
The only sound you can hear at the farm is that of nature. The farm, is set against the backdrop of Kanchejunga.

Food is absolutely delicious. We are vegetarians and requested for some local cuisine. Got to devour some very delicious curries and daals.

It was a memorable stay and I would love to visit the place again.

I cannot thank enough Thendup and his family for the amazing time I had at the farm. The place is just beautiful, with plenty of walks and places to visit in the surroundings. The food they serve is out of this world, and they take a lot of pride in presenting local specialties cooked to perfection. So many reasons to stay there, the peace, nature, the food, the welcome, the views, the cabin... I will certainly be back.

We went there in Apr 2017(Just last week). The trip to Rinchenpong is long but it is well worth it. It is a beautiful farm that has been built tastefully by the host Thendup. Other reviewers have mentioned many good things about the farm, so let me talk about the people.

It is the hospitality of Thendup and the team that really set apart this farm stay from our other stays in Sikkim. The host really goes out of his way to ensure that you are well taken care of. I was about to take a couple of local hikes but my shoes were damaged. Thendup offered his shoes and helped me complete the trek. On the last day, the shared taxi from Rinchenpong stood cancelled. Thendup personally drove us to Kaluk and ensured that we got our seats. The food was great too, some if it locally grown in the farm itself. The staff are warm and very welcoming of the guests. The momo making session was great too.

I would wholeheartedly recommend this farm stay to anyone and would go there myself if I ever travelled to Sikkim again.

We made a very quick impromptu decision to visit sikkim and decided on yang sum organic farm as it sounded just what we wanted... And we were not disappointed.. Just feel a little in love with the place.. The area.. Its just perfect... And the good was just Sublime.. Even though we were trekking everyday we were stuffed with the delicious meals that we were served... Wow is a good description.. Very innovative and amazing variety.. The local cheese is superb
and mr thendup is a lovely person and gentleman.. Very helpful thank you..
The room we had the one on the first level with a long verandah had so much character
I could go on and on
So to put it in a nutshell
Is a perfect place for any one to start their sikkim experience
We have fallen in love
With each other
And this place..
Thank you yangsum
