The Jaldhaka river originates in East Sikkim and crosses Bhutan to enter into Bengal. As the Jaldhaka river flows down through the hills of Bengal, it forms the border of Bhutan and India. On the Indian side, there are small villages Bindu, Jhalong, Paren, and others. Our Homestay is located at Jhalong just above the riverbed.
Jaldhaka is one of the first Hydro electrical projects in the region. The Bindu Dam, located about 8 km from our Homestay, is a popular attraction in the area. The Paren – Bindu – Jhalong area was the site for construction of this large project. Our Homestay is situated in an area known as Stage 1.
