Chuikhim is a new destination in the Kalimpong district of West Bengal. Our Homestay here is the home of the Gurung family. The Homestay is located on the upper ridges of the Chuikhim village with a great view of the surrounding hills. The Bangladesh border is also visible from here. You can spot a network of rivers like Chel, Ghish, and many other unnamed streams flowing silently across the valley. The chirping of birds will enchant you and the sunrise is beautiful to wake up to. This fresh destination is drawing more and more visitors of late as guests coming here are recommending it without hesitation to others looking for serene spots.
The nondescript village of Chuikhim in the southern part of Kalimpong district has been included in the tourism map almost a decade back. Growth in tourism has been slow here and only recently a substantial number of tourists have started visiting the village. Our Homestay is located near the top of the hill on which Chuikhim village is located. It is accessible by cars. The hilltop in the vicinity is an excellent place from where you can view the Dooars plains as well as the hills.
This is a basic Homestay. We offer you clean rooms and hygienic food. There is no typical hotel-like amenity here.
Whatever we offer, it comes with a complimentary smile from the host. There is a garden outside the house where flowers bloom almost throughout the year. Plucking of flowers is not allowed though. There are 3 rooms in the main building. The ground floor has 2 rooms and the first floor has 1 room. All the 3 rooms have similar tariffs.
Chuikhim is a hill on the southern fringe of Kalimpong hills. It is located at an altitude of about 2400 feet.
The area is locally also known as Kambal Busty. The hilly village is well known for its peaceful surrounding and hospitable local people.
Food and Dining
Since there is little scope for eating outside in the village, all our bookings are taken on a full board basis which includes Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner, and evening tea and snacks.
Typically, the breakfast consists of Roti sabji or Puri Sabji depending on guests' preference, accompanied with tea. The lunch is mostly with egg, dal, and sabji and for Dinner, we serve you Chicken with Roti or rice. Fresh fish is rarely available in the village and hence we do not serve it normally. In case of advance notice, we can also serve you purely vegetarian food.

This is the place for a village walk, this is the place for sitting under the sun on a cold morning while sipping a cup of tea, this is the place where you search for the unknown bird that calls from the wood, this is the place where you chat with the local villager in the evening and learn about their lifestyle. The village is situated on a hilly slope, the villagers are helpful and welcoming. A popular adventure activity here is trekking.

This unique weather makes Chuikhim a round-the-year destination. Monsoon months of July and August witness heavy to very heavy showers. Rest of the year occasional shower is very common.
