Guiding Monk Homestay In Darjeeling

The Guiding Monk Homestay is located away from the rush of the Darjeeling Mall Road. The homestay is perched at a height from which you can get beautiful panoramic views of the entire Darjeeling city. The guests are welcomed in the traditional style of Nepal by putting the generous Nepali scarf called Khada around their neck. They have various categories of rooms for you to choose from based on the number of people and your preferences.

The best part is that you can get a mesmerising view of the Kanchenjunga ranges right from your room. The homestay is made completely out of wood, giving it a traditional rustic feel.
