Rangbhang Homestay, Mirik
Mirik Busty No-2, School Dara, P.O-Mirik
Ranked 3 of 24 hotels in Mirik
I stayed there for 1 night while returning from Gangtok to bagdogra skipping Darjeeling which most people will term as a foolish step but I wanted to go to a place which is far far away from city boundaries and where I can relax in the lap of nature.And I got what I was looking for.It took us 1 hr to reach the place after reaching Mirik as the road leading there is a small broken one with steep curves at every corner. It seems like a never ending journey. It's better to travel with a local driver in a small car as a large one can't even turn on such small n curvy road.As for the homestay,it's a lovely place with good rooms and basic facilities.But remember to pack all your basic stuff well in advance coz once u r there , u will not find any shop or any facility of any kind there.The friendly owners (Gurung family)live in a house adjoining the rooms with only one helping hand.All meals are prepared in their kitchen with veggies picked from their organic farm surrounding the homestay by auntie herself and served in their dining room.We actually sat n saw her preparing mouth watering dishes while we chatted with uncle. He gave us gud company and told us a lot of things about the nature, the birds and other local stuff. I'll like to specially mention here that it was one of the best lunches I had ever had in my life. It was like a family affair.After lunch, we strolled down the roads n woods n their farm where all the fresh veggies were picked for ours meals.There are only a few houses scattered in a large area which is great if u want to b wid urself for some time.On our request, they organized a bonfire for us n prepared delicious snacks. Remember,it's strictly vegetarian there.If u wish to be alone to read,write or listen music n want no one to reach u,it's the perfect place to be. Inner peace is guaranteed.
It is just like a home away to home. The road from NJP to Rangbang Homestay is the first thing you will really like. After reaching to Mirik you have go downwards 3-4 km. It is basically a remote village on the lap of the nature. Thank you Weekend Destinations for introducing this place. The Gurung family who look after this place is very friendly and cooperative. The location,front view,peaceful environment,rooms,wooden interiors everything is just excellent. They maintained the property very well,nit and clean.The fresh vegetarian food is the another great attraction of this place.
As I always prefer to be near nature, found this location good enough. Very easy to reach from NJP or Darjeeling. Mr. Gurung is very friendly and helpful. We preferred to reach from Siliguri to Mirik by shear Jeep , we got down near â€œBoudi er Hotelâ€ at Mirik Bazar and took a small car (ZEN-Maruti) for Rs.200/- to reach at Rangbang Homesay within 20 minutes. From Homestay gate , few share Jeep are available to go to Mirik lake ( locally known as Krishna Nagar / Mirik). One share jeep also available in the morning for direct Darjeeling from Homestay gate. Food is very good and fresh. Rooms are airy and clean. You may roam around to experience hill rural life and flowers and birds. Except rainy season, nice place to visit â€“ for couple, family.
