What a time we had! My partner and I were looking to have a relaxed holiday where we could simply absorb the beauty of SIkkim. And that's exactly what we got!

The hospitality at Yangsum farms was simpy perfect. The staff makes sure to pay attention to your every need. We were fed some really amazing and authentic sikkimese cuisine. The room was lovely, and since we visited in the winter (7 to 10 degrees!), the in-room heater and water heater were a boon :-)

Thendup, fondly known as Tashi, was an incredible host! He showed us around the gorgeous heritage property, full of trees and cardamom plantations, told us stories of the days gone by and introduced to us the Sikkim of today, He organised a vilage walk for us, which really opened our eyes to this distant world. And besides being a great host, Tashi turned out to be a really wonderful friend too, ensuring that we felt right at home even when we left his farm and travelled to Gangtok! We were invited into his home and family. That was an experience that we would never forget and will always forever cherish!

This is without a doubt one of the best places to stay at in SIkkim! Not to mention... on our last day in Yangsum, in spite of the cold weather, we were blessed by the sight of the mighty Kanchenjunga mountain range, which is a stunning view from Yangsum Farms!

We spent four nights at Yangsum Heritage farm and enjoyed every moment. We love being in nature and you can't get much better than this. The scenery around the farm is stupendous. It is really well organised and the cottages designed and furnished with great taste. Thendup and his staff are always around to provide tea, coffee and advice on walking and hot water bottles at night! A lovely touch and necessary for us as it was quite cool when we were there.

We wanted peace and quiet and great walking and that is exactly what we got. On our second day Thendup recommended a walking guide and he (Kishen) took us on a four hour amazing walk through the forest past an active Buddhist monastery and through a delightful village. We passed near by some lovely homesteads and got an insight into how people live in the region.

The food was plentiful and delicious, all of it home-cooked and organic. We loved it! It was fun trying our local specialities like Momos which we had not eaten before.

The journey from the airport in Bagdogra to the farm is a long one (over 5 hours) and some of the time the roads are in poor condition so it is not for the faint-hearted. However, we felt that the destination more than compensated for the long journey. If you want magnificent scenery, great walking and total peace and quiet with excellent food thrown into the mix then this is the place for you. We visited in February and were glad of our warm sweaters and coats. You do need to note that it is chilly especially early in the morning and in the evenings.

Room tip: All the cottages are beautiful.

Thendup is an excellent organizer, he helped us with everything we needed. He arranged a guide, advised us on transport, helped us with a very special request. He went above and beyond his call of duty. The property is beautiful, we stayed in a wooden yurt, it was spacious, had lovely views, a nice washroom. The building was spotlessly clean and in great condition. The scenery speaks for itself, it's beautiful. Perfect views of the Himalayas on a clear day. We fell asleep listening to sounds of nature, it was really peaceful and relaxing. The staff are attentive but also laid back, they are there if you need them but they give you privacy and allow you to roam without interruption. Hot water bags each night , a lovely touch. The food is fresh, home made , tasty and presented well. Overall it is a great place for a nature lover who wants to get away from a fast pace life. A perfect place to read your book in the individualized balcony attached to the yurt. It's a really special place.

Staying at Yangsum Heritage farm was a wonderful experience ! The place is beautiful, food is excellent and the owner will organize you some walks in the mountains. I will definitely go back ! C'est un petit paradis, loin de la civilisation!
