The word Rangaroon is derived from “Rai Gurung”, which is a Nepali caste. There is a substantial population of Rai and Gurung people in the little village and its neighboring area, giving rise to the name. It is also termed as Rangaroong and Rangeyroong. The region is a tea garden with the adjacent village - it is famous mainly for the Rangaroon tea garden. The Queen of the Hills, Darjeeling, is located only about 20 Kms from here.
The homestay is located next to the factory of Rangaroon tea estate. The structure is fully wooden and has 2 rooms. The ground floor has a balcony at the back and from inside, wooden stairs take you to the upper floor, which has a room on each side. Able to accommodate one family at a time, this place is simple but perfect for a family getaway.
The USP of the homestay is a very pretty sitting area between the 2 rooms, a cosy nook ideal for chatting and spending time with family for hours. Relax here and enjoy some quality time with your loved ones.
Since Rangaroon is a small village and there is no restaurant in the area, if you are in the village, you must have your meal at the Homestay itself.
Situated within the premises of the tea garden, the homestay has a road in front and a spectacular view of the valley from the back. Step onto the balcony to enjoy the panoramic sight of the blue sky meeting the green valley, with the Kanchenjungha range spanning the region.
