We had booked a family trip with some bird watching plans in kewzing. After reading very very good reviews in their own website we called Mr Sonam over phone and talked over. He is not a bird watcher himself but acknowledged our interest and decide to book a local guide to help us in choosing the right spots for birding. My personal interest here was to spend some good time recording some rare birds like the brown-wood owl and the myzornis. The booking was done by bank transfer for a package for 1 room with breakfast and dinner. We had our daughter aged 5 so she was not charged. Reaching the place was a really really long journey after the night train from Calcutta. We had to stop for lunch and some tea-stops on the way. We finally arrived just before evening with a hired car. Specially towards the end of the journey there were not direction boards and google-map directions showed a way which did not seem to exist (this is much common in the hills I know). After several calls to Mr Sonam we finally could locate the spot. We were greeted by some juice. The rooms were very good I would say (the cost was 5000 for 2 for stay+breakfast+lunch). We settled down and waited for dinner. Dinner started at 8:30 with the basics of rice/roti, curry, fries and a little quantity of chicken. The next day we roamed around for a while around the farmhouse to spot the common birds. There was a guide called Urgen who helped me locate the spotted elachur (which was a treat). Due to bad/foggy weather the shots were not decent but I would take it for a wren babbler. Later in the day again we had to leave and travel using a hired vehicle to Ravangla for lunch. The cost of hired vehicle here is quite a bit compared to elsewhere in Sikkim (perhaps due to the remote location). That evening there was a sudden scarcity of food. Dinner started late and there were not chicken. They served us some eggs which again were very limited (I think they expected us to have 2 eggs for 3 persons). The food that day left us taken aback as we thought the package price we paid was good enough to have unlimited staple meals with some decent quantity of chicken or whatever. On complaining we were informed that food is not something we should complain about here as its not a hotel and a homestay is at liberty to serve whatever they feel like. No wonder it was fresh and healthy food but the quantity was far below what a normal person would want to eat (specially on a holiday). The next day's breakfast was also below optimal. There were no fruits, no eggs. Only some bread and butter/jam with some milk and cornflakes. That day we had to leave early for a second round of breakfast. The worst is yet to come. The next day when we enquired about our guide for birding they said he is not well and would not be able to guide us. We were taken aback again as our main motto to come and live here was to have some good birding time and without someone local to show us a place it is just not worth it to roam around. I explained that we have come a long way here in hope of this guide's help but Mr Sonam just couldn't arrange for anyone. So I considered my trip sabotaged with less to scarce food served and then no birding. I would recommend if someone is going to Kewzing to book eco-stay which is far cheaper (I later found out but also less professional and less communication) and book someone more professional for birding (though it is perhaps not possible to bring in an independent guide here). Perhaps it is not possible to watch birds for an outsider with such below par quality of interest among the local folks. But thats where your luck could help you (mine did not help).

The quaint farmhouse is located 10kms downhill from Ravangla in the Village Kewzing set amidst natural environs and an impressive backdrop of mountain ranges. Below are some crucial facts about the homestay we came to know about during our 3nights stay predominantly for birding. 1) It took us nearly 5 hrs. to reach the farmhouse by WagonR from NJP Rly. Stn. Costing 3600 bucks prearranged by the Manger Mr. Sonam Bonpo , who was warm and interactive all through our stay. 2) We took the villa suite in the main building 1st floor with a open balcony with mountain views costing 4500 bucks per night including breakfast & dinner ,priced on the higher side.You will get all the necessary details about the rates etc. in their website. 3) Food was freshly prepared and limited to local farm grown products understandable for the remote village location.They serve only in the restaurant located at the ground floor of the main building. 4) The place is a paradise for avid bird lovers. For birdwatching taking a guide is compulsory but there are only two guides available.We took Urgen the local village boy for three morning birding sessions as the more renowned Mr. Chewang Bonpo , the proprietor and elder brother of Sonam, was committed with other group.Each morning session cost us about 800 to 1000 bucks, excluding the cab cost of 1000 bucks for birding in the outskirts of Maenam WLS and downhill near Dolling monastery. Among the disadvantages, the homestay doesn't generally arrange lunch due to their firming commitments and you have to press them hard doing so. Look out for their supplied tea,coffee sachets in the room ,which mostly are outdated ,as was in our case. Nevertheless it was a relief for us from the drudgery of city life as we thoroughly enjoyed our outing in the charming village surroundings with the Bonpo family and the cacophony of our beautiful feathered friends every now and then , accompanied by the everpresent and enchanting presence of the Sikkim Himalayas.

The room we stayed in was very comfortable and the electricity was on so we had warm showers which was not always true in Sikkim. The host is very helpful and the food was extremely good being very healthy with nettle soups and an emphasis on vegetables.. The only suggestion I would make is that Sikkim Dogs can be loud at night so you might want to bring ear plugs. Did not affect our birding in the daytime. Once again the lady host was extremely welcoming and wanted to share Sikkim culture with you......

Had an excellent 4 days stay watching the beautiful ice capped Himalayas from the rooms neatly furnished, enjoying home cooked food grown in the home farm with birding trips with Mr. Chewang who has excellent knowledge of the bird species and its habitats..

The warmth and hospitality of the entire bonpo family combined with bedroom views of thethe Kanchendzonga range, the home cooked food , the early morning symphony of bird songs , the eco friendly ambience of the farm, - all made for an unforgetabble experience. Would definitely like to make it an annual pilgrimage if possible. ( there are great trekking options also - our guide Urgen was very knowledgable) Dr M.k.Barooah --Guwahati 781003
