This was the first homestay I visited in Lingee Payong and I was immediately captivated by how simple yet beautiful it was. Surrounded by terraced farms on all sides, its location is stunning and the host, Mr. Kuber, is extremely friendly and chatty too. His little kids were very inquisitive and kept me company even when I hiked further. This is a great place for backpackers who are looking to explore rural Sikkim and learn about the local culture.
