West Sikkim homestay
on Nov 11, 2019
Had an incredibly refreshing stay at Dhungay homestay during our visit to the relatively unexplored West of Sikkim! The homestay is a local farmhouse with a cowshed and flourishing fields, with a fantastic view of the Himalayas and a lovely family living in traditional settings. The food is delicious local fare with vegetables straight from the garden and fresh dairy produce-handprocessed from the milk milked from the farm cows. The guestrooms are cosy and comfortable with all modern amneties available. The young host is resourceful and accommodating and ensures that your stay is memorable and worthwhile. Truly a wonderful getaway!

I stayed in this place for one week.
Climate you have to experience.
Very very loving family.
Never said no for any thing.
Best part is organic food prepared with extra careful hands.
Ganesh chettri is super host.
My plans visit every year.
We parted this home stay with strong family bonds with chhetri family.
Best place to stay in Martam

Run by Ganesh, an amazing person. He is so awesome and take care of his guests, just nothing like anything. To access this place you need to park your car at downhills (if you have) and take the stairs (3-4min). Aged people may have some issue as there is no Car access to it. One thing I must say if you stay at here for a night, your will understand the worth of staying. One more thing I will suggest to taste their home made Tongba and Guava wine. They have power backup in case of load shading. In a whole it was an awesome stay I can say.
Try to book the room on the front side in 1st floor as you will get the best view.
For booking you can directly call - 9733269413
The cost includes folding (Breakfast and Dinner) and lodging per person basis.
The best Homestay to be in West Sikkim
on Nov 4, 2018
Hi everyone. The beauty of India is that it offers you so many different cultures to enjoy under one roof. And this time I decided to be in the North East.I chose Sikkim and I'm already feeling nostalgic about my stay at Dhungay Homestay even though its just one day after I have left. Trust me.... if you are seeking tranquility, silence, want to hear the crickets at the same time experience touching hospitality, you need to be at Dhungay. The host Ganesh and his family are excellent hosts and their warmth will definitely melt you. The house overlooks beautiful cascading valleys and you will really enjoy sitting in the verandah having a sip of tea while staring into the abyss. There will be a small trek of approx 9 minutes to the Homestay from the main road and it is a priceless experience. Sikkimese people are extremely polite and tourist friendly which every Indian must experience. I had travelled in my personal vehicle from Mumbai by road and parked the vehicle away from the property. And trust me , I never even worried once about its safety. Mr Ganesh also arranges for village walks which is a learning experience. The food at the Homestay is top notch and a treat in itself. I would like to go on but I always want the reader to discover things for himself and would not want to reveal every thing, of course everything is only positive about Dhungay... Finally before I end I must admit that I'm already considering visiting Dhungay again..... Me and my family are deeply humbled by Mr Ganesh's and his family's hospitality.
A REAL HOMESTAY !!!

stayed in august 2018.
this place is a homestay in a real sense. each member of the family tries to make your stay more comfortable while going about their daily chores. the rooms are clean with a local feel to it. toilets are clean with geyser. and the view overlooking the valley infront is superb. the food is very local, made from organic stuff produced in their own farm, and really tasty. the stay is a little 10mins hike up from the main road, but my parents made it and they are past 60. also this makes the place even more special if someone is looking for peace and no crowds. absolutely non touristy stuff. what makes this place even more special is the honest connect the family members have with their guests. absolute value for money.
*don't expect intercom room service
*don't expect tv
*expect to hike a bit from the road
*they can arrange for car
AMAZING HOMESTAY. AMAZING FAMILY. AMAZING GANESH
