Bara Mangwa Farmhouse, Takdah, Kalimpong

Bara Mangwa Far­mhouse is designed like a colonial-era British bungalow with sloping red roofs, scalloped shades built with wood and stone. It has three types of room. Deluxe category is spacious with attached hanging terrace and westerns style bathroom. They have the view of Kalimpong hills. Premium category rooms are spacious but cozy room with attached balcony and western style bathroom. The standard rooms are compact yet comfortable room, attached with good quality western style bathroom. Both the premium and standard rooms have its panoramic view of river Teesta and Kalimpong hills.


Kesar (Kesar Rai, proprietor) leads us to our warm, cavernous duplex suite, complete with a lovely fireplace and rock-inlay walls on the ground floor. A woo­den, spiral staircase leads to the floor above, with a large octagonal ceiling, stripped wood and bamboo walls, well-crafted glass windows and a king-sized bed. Most inviting, though, is the plush balcony overlooking the mig­hty Kalimpong to the north, Delo Mountain to the west and, further on, the temperamental Kanche­nju­nga. This is the highlight of the house.-PRIYADARSHINI SEN (Outlook India)
