Mr.Ongden Molomu is a young local villager whose initial source of income was his shop, which he still owns. 5 years ago, seeing the development of tourism in the area, he decided to convert his residence into a homestay, which he now runs successfully along with his wife Pramila. Being a local, he takes interest in escorting his guests around the village to show them the places of attraction.
His father, a retired gentleman aged 70 years, is a soft-spoken person who enjoys talking to guests about the old days and the history of his village. Bengali guests will be pleasantly surprised at his fluency in their language! Personal touches have enabled the couple to become popular, more so because Gorubathan Tar itself has a limited number of homestays.Even More...
