I gifted my in-laws with a Lamahatta Tour Package on their 25 wedding anniversary and left the rest upon NatureWings to make the necessary arrangements. Neither the destination nor Mr. Arpan Adhikari let me down, and they had an awesome trip to cherish forever. The choice of home stay, driver, and food was very good, and Lamahatta, in nutshell, is a nature lover hotspot and a true wonder to visit once in a lifetime.
Our Lamahatta Tour was the result of our missed toy train ride, and a quick suggestion from Mr. Arpan Adhikari to explore this place with a day visit. Lamahatta is a small village enclosed by greens on all sides and has well equipped decent home stays serving good food. We had a great time visiting Chota Mangwa, and Lamahatta eco-park, where we trekked and snapped the beauty of nature.
Our Lamahatta Darjeeling Trip was like finding a hidden gem within the magnificent hills of Darjeeling. Set in the backdrop of Mt. Kanchenjunga, this wonderful place was suggested to me by Mr. Sandip Raha, and trusting his choice made way for a great holiday. Lamahatta eco-park, Chota mangwa, and the nearby tea estates were our sightseeing points, and we trekked to the top to see the sacred pond at the eco-park covered with tall pine trees and secluded from the busy areas.
Being an old customer, I reached Mrs. Mousumi Raha, a specialist in this sector, to organize my Darjeeling and Lamahatta Tour from Mumbai Mrs. Raha planned and executed my trip very well, and we had a good time in the lap of nature at Lamahatta, where we did trekking, photo-op amongst the tall pine forest, and stayed at comfortable view rooms before moving on to the queen of hills, Darjeeling. Thanks to Naturewings, our vacation was worth every penny.
Darjeeling was my honeymoon destination, but Lamahatta Tour stood out as the winner with its beautiful location and serine environment amidst the greenery with a mesmerizing view of the breathtaking Mt. Kanchenjunga, and away from madding crowd, this place has its uniqueness. We recommended everyone to add this place to their wish list.
I highly recommend every tourist to give a visit to this place. As this is a newly recognized visiting place, it is free from pollution and crowd. You can take a cab from New Jalpaiguri. Lamahatta is closer than Darjeeling from NGP. Weather in Lamahatta is very comfortable, not so hot or cold and most importantly free from pollution. Lamahatta is a heavenly place with a full view of Kanchenjunga range. The beautiful park on the lap of hill is another attraction. As this is a newly recognized visiting place there are few hotels and restaurants mainly Home stays.
We recently had this wonderful opportunity to visit to Lamahatta. It is a perfect holiday destination if you are a nature freak and want to break away from your day to day busy, noisy, hustle-bustle life. You will have a lifetime of pleasant and healthy experience during your stay in Lamahatta. The breath-taking view of Mt. Kanchenjunga outside your room, the surrounding ecstasy of calm nature. Lamahatta Eco Park is really a spot that will make you forget all glooms and sulks of past life.
Hailing from humid Kolkata, Sikkim, and Darjeeling occupies a special place inside us apart from being the nearest hill station. NatureWings was recommended to me by my brother in law who went to the Silk Route and Zuluk Tour with them. I booked my trip for December 2019, and Mr. Akash from NatureWings actively took my call and provided me with a personalized itinerary. Their service was swift and even allowed me to make some changes on the trip. Our driver Mr. Tamang was a friendly person who treated and guided us very well, and his car was comfortable and well maintained. We got good view rooms, and the food served at both the places was fresh and hot. My trip went flawlessly, and thanks to the NatureWings team for their effort to make our trip a memorable one.
Being a solo woman traveler, it is not easy to find a trusted travel agency, and as I had previously gone for a Bhutan Package Tour with NatureWings so thought of visiting the Silk route with them. NatureWings Silk Route specialist Mr. Akash provided me with an excellent budget-friendly itinerary covering the best sightseeing places and also allowed me to make the changes I urged. All my queries were answered patiently by him, and as I was traveling alone, so he provided me a good driver who guided me well and followed my custom itinerary. The wooden cottages booked for me in the green valley of Kolakham was beautiful, and the view from my room was like a dream come true, as I saw Mt. Kanchenjunga standing head up high from my balcony with floating clouds passing by. Mr. Indrajeet booked good, safe rooms near to the reception and made sure to make comfort calls every day. Kolakham and Charkhole have a charm of its own, smiling people, far from the crowded cities, in the lap of untouched nature with picturesque views of the mountains that we could only dream. I would love to explore other destinations with NatureWings and recommend others also.
We visited Chota Mangwa in the first week of October last year. It is an Eco-friendly village with friendly and down-to-earth people to welcome you. You can get wonderful views of magnificent Kanchenjunga on a clear sunny day. The serenity and tranquility of this place overwhelmed us. The scenic beauty and the tranquility of the place and the whistling of the birds will surely give you a heavenly feeling... One of the best places we have ever explored...!!!
We recently had this wonderful opportunity for Chotta Mangwa Tour. It is a perfect holiday home if you are a nature freak and want to break away from your day to day busy, noisy, hustle-bustle life. You will have a lifetime of pleasant and healthy experience during your stay in Chotta Mangwa. The breath-taking view of Mt. Kanchenjunga outside your room, the surrounding ecstasy of calm nature, and early morning birds chirping will give you a wonderful experience for a lifetime.
We visited Tinchuley, which included in our itinerary and one of the offbeat destinations in Darjeeling. It is a calm village with tea gardens and orange orchards offering the tranquillity and nature makes it the most promising eco-village and a must-visit destination if you are planning to visit North-Bengal. Overall, we enjoyed our stay in Tinchuley with the warm hospitality of the home stay owners and the good service from our travel agent NatureWings.
We visited Tinchuley along with Chatkatpur destinations mentioned in our itinerary. After visiting this place, it overwhelmed us with replenishing views of sweeping valleys and majestic mountains jutting out against the sky, the arresting contours of Kanchenjunga, the rushing Rangeet River that slithers below. Overall, it is a journey worth taking.
