1.Navin Tamang, Owner at Tathagata Farm, Darjeeling
A football enthusiast, Navin left his regular 9-to-6 job and started working on the family farm and built this beautiful property with his brother and their team over a period of time. Navin is actively involved in the Tathagata Farm and Community Homestays initiative that began about 5 years ago to support and sustain economic growth of the village popularly known as ‘Mineral Spring’. They have successfully managed to motivate a number of homes to open their doors for travelers. No wonder most guests feel at home at Tathagata Farm.
Leave the Darjeeling chaos and head to this heaven, if you are in search of great food, comfort and more importantly lovely people. Tathagatha will transport you to a different world and make you feel like living like one among the Darjeeling residents in the hills. Imagine waking up to the tweeting of birds and to a view of a large expanse of green overlooking a valley and Himalayas, drinking hand-brewed tea, walking through a sun flower laden path to an open kitchen for breakfast and hiking to a river-stream for a fresh dip early in the morning. Tathagata Farm has received the Best Homestay Award from Lonely Planet & Multiple Certificate of Excellence Awards over the years from Trip Advisor making it one of the Top Rated Homestay/Farm Stay option in the country.
Navin Tamang is a passionate host and is deeply involved in all activities at the farm. Navin can be seen around the farm chatting and exchanging stories with the guests who feel like being a part of a large family while staying at the Tathagata farm.
