Hello, I haven't see any recent threads on Dzongu home-stays, hence I'm starting this new one. I spoke to Mr. Choden Lepcha and Mr. Dupden Lepcha and both have quoted Rs 1200 for food and accommodation. Has anyone been there recently. I also want to stay in a place where the host can tell me about their culture. I would appreciate inputs. I'm planning to visit in April. Thanks in advance.

I am all set to be at Dzongu for three days from 19th to 22nd Jan, 2018. I have finalized my stay in Tingvong Village in a lesser known homestay called Rumlyang. Hopefully I would be able to give you more details once I come back.

Look forward to your thoughts.

That's one of 3 in the area we are looking at.

Mayal Llang and Dnozgu Depden which is right next to the one you are in.

Got back from the trip. Dzongu was magnificent. I stayed at Karma's Rumlyang Homestay and he charged 1k per person. Just uphill to his home there is his brother's home who runs a home stay as well. I went and saw around and honestly this one is a tad better in its location and interiors. However Karma's efforts to make us comfortable at all times was noteworthy. He tried his best and even beyond to fulfill our requirements even when we did not really ask for it. On a clear day the majestic snow-capped peaks are visible right out of his porch. The evening bonfires were complimentary as was the local liquors 'chee' and 'Aarak'.
The food was awesome and so were the gestures of everyone we met.

PM me if anyone needs any contacts or other details.

Yes it was pretty clean. The toilet was separate and can't be called top notct. But I've heard almost all other homestays are alike in this regard. However much I would like to but for a solo girl, I just cannot recommend this property. One of the reason for which is the absence of any other lady in the homestay. For that matter, I feel inclined to recommend his brother's homestay who stays with his wife and the loo's too are better. If you need his number tell me.

And you can PM anyone in this forum only after your 10th post probably.

Hi Polzi,
I'm travelling to Dzongu in april end. Can you please tell me how to reach from Siliguri via Singtam and Mangan? From where do I get the shared taxi from Siliguri for Singtam, and when does the share taxi leave in the morning? Also how can one get a cab from Singtam to Mangan?
Also I will staying with Karma at Rumlyang, he quoted me 700 for pick up from Mangan, is that right?
Thanks in advance for all the help.

@Aritri, Hello.

You can get shared jeeps to Singtam from right outside NJP station itself. All the Gangtok going vehicles go via Singtam so you can hop on to one of those as well. The fare is 250 per seat. Alternatively you can take an auto to SNT bus stand Siliguri, from where jeeps ply to Singtam at regular intervals as they get filled. the fare from here will be 200. You will get jeeps from 6 in the morning.
The jeep stand at Singtam for Mangan is right at the centre of the Singtam Bazaar. Anyone would readily show you up.
700 for pickup from Mangan is exactly what he charged me so that is alright too.
Karma is a wonderful person, as wonderful as Dzongu itself is. Tell him 'Hi' from me if possible.

Have a pleasant trip.
