Ideal for people looking to experience a typical rural community life with nature, peace and wellness. Ecological sustainability vis a vis permaculture is our primary focus and as our tribe grows, we want to see that ideal take shape. We conduct natural building, soap making, yoga & slow food workshops. Please note that a 15 minute uphill walk from the main road is required to reach us. While this may be a pleasure for some, it might not be for others. Please make your decision based on that.
“What started as a hunt for an anniversary getaway, ended up being the most delightful experience amidst unadulterated nature. At Petrichor, my husband and I spent such quality time with each other which few places without commercial activity can claim to offer. The first thing that strikes you is the spectacular view. It takes a little effort to deserve it, but once you have hiked uphill for about 15 minutes from the road to reach Petrichor, you stand stunned to see a beautiful mountain view on one side and lush forested hills on all others. The hut we stayed in was beautifully and creatively decorated, was spacious and comfortable. The fresh water pool was a huge plus specially since we visited during warm season. There is nothing better than dipping in a pool overlooking blue mountain peaks and floating white clouds. While the natural beauty around us satisfied the soul, simple, farm grown, organic food satisfied our tummies, which were often empty from the various hikes we took in the hills all around us. The hosts, Sweta and Siddhartha met us on the last day of our trip. They are both such interesting people and conversation with them was great. In their absence their staff took good care of us, guiding us on longer trails, preparing food, bringing local beer and even providing interesting company. The phone network comes and goes, but is enough for important and emergency communication. If you want to go on excursions, there is facility to hire a car and a driver but there is enough to explore within the property, the artist's hut, the mud fireplace, the beautiful open kitchen, the open deck with a hammock, the pool, the kitchen garden, it goes on. There couldn't be a better and more comfortable way for us city folk to start experiencing nature in its real form at the beautiful Petrichor.”
A place where you can just be yourself, where you can pause and reflect your inner-self in its purest form and just go for a walk in our farm area, meet the sincere and simple villagers, play with or can just observe our pet animals, be with the most oldest tribal community "The Lepchas", or just find peace with your favourite book in our peaceful verandas, learn more about farming in a most friendly environment, learn to live sustainably and instead of going too advanced, we prefer our roots.
“wonderful stay away from it all - lovely family - we truely felt like home! definitly a place to come back!”
You’ll love my place because of the ambiance, the outdoors space, and the comfy bed. My place is good for couples, solo adventurers, and families (with kids).
“Home away from home, Picturesque view from the room, this is perfect place for those who are looking for some ideal time to relax, revive and rejuvenate.. We were hosted by Tenzing, who was really warm and helped us through everything while owner Karma kept in touch over phone helped us as he was out of town.I would emphasize on Tenzing as he took time to tell us about the history of aritar and silk route and made his brother sing for us (which was amazing)..and if you are a pet lover, you will find Lucky, who will guide you to grocery nearby and roll over the grass for you. I would rate this place a 10 on 10 and would visit it everytime I visit east sikkim.”
