Humro Home Chatakpur is located at Upper Chatakpur in Sonada area of Darjeeling. This is a homestay in the Senchal forest with a grand view of Kanchenjunga and surrounding mountains.

The Property

Our Home Stay here is inside the Senchal Wildlife Sanctuary. There are several homestays in the village, the Humro Home Chatakpur is the topmost homestay in the village. Mr. Norbu Sherpa is your host here. The Homestay was started in 2012 and presently offers 4 rooms for guest accommodation. The location of our homestay is advantageous as you get the best view of the surrounding mountains due to your stay at the top of the hill. Kanchenjunga can be seen from almost every room and corner of this Home Stay.
Guests must note that you will need to walk uphill about 200 meters from the car stand to reach Humro Home Chatakpur. There is a short cut route through which the distance is reduced to about a hundred meters. Elderly and sick visitors must keep this in mind while booking. The path is also not suitable for the disabled visitor using a wheelchair. You can consider the uphill walk akin to climbing a four-story building by stairs and you should be ready for the same.
The main viewpoint of the village located at the top of the hill is less than 100 meters from our Home Stay. This viewpoint offers a 360-degree panoramic view of the hills on a clear day.

Resort Amenities

Most tourists spend their day walking around the village or enjoying the grand mountain views from here. Just a few minutes’ walks will take you inside the forest, you may visit the small lake inside which is worshipped by the locals.

However, avoid going deep inside the forest especially during dawn and dusk. There is wildlife in the forest including Himalayan Bear which has a history of attacking human on some occasions.
The best viewing spot is the viewpoint at the top of the village which has a watchtower. With a 360 degrees view of the surrounding hills. You will end up spending a substantial time here.


Chatakpur is a very small village there is no restaurant in the village, so all our bookings are in AP plan, which means all your meals will be served at our homestay. The basic meal plan food includes bed tea, breakfast, lunch, evening tea, and dinner.

Local food is served with limited choice. Breakfast includes roti Sabji or Puri-Bhaji. Lunch includes dal, rice, vegetable, and egg. Dinner consists of Roti or rice with dal, vegetables, and chicken, additional food if available will be charged extra on the spot. If you have any special request about food, you need to reconfirm the same in advance. Please note the nearest market is about 45 minutes drive away and the option of food in the village is limited. However, the food is hygienic and sumptuous.

The exterior/interior


Humro Home Chatakpur is our Home Stay at Chatakpur forest village near Darjeeling. Chatakpur has come into prominence in recent years due to the grand view of surrounding mountains from here including a view of Mt. Kanchenjunga. Chatakpur is the hilltop next to the famous Tiger hill sunrise point. It is a small forest village with less than two dozen huts and its total inhabitants number less than a hundred. This makes Chatakpur one of the most exclusive and secluded tourist destinations of the region. Since you will be traveling through the forests, you will need permission and pay the entry fee. We will organize the same for our guests. Also, note the road through the forest may be quite tricky for drivers who are not familiar with the terrain. So we do not recommend self-driving. High ground clearance of the vehicle is also a must.

Bagora is an Indian Air force base located on the Old Cart road. The old cart road is the original road to Darjeeling from Siliguri. From Bagora you will travel to Chatakpur via the old cart road. The distance is about 14 km, but the road is unpaved and full of gravel. You may also travel from Jorebunglow through the Jorebunglow Chatakpur road. This road reaches Chatakpur just 14 km away. The third option is to travel from 3rd-mile area on the Darjeeling Kalimpong Peshok road. From 3rd-mile forest check post, you will be traveling about 11 km to reach Chatakpur.
