This is a new addition to the tourism map of Sittong. Presently we have only one room cottage here. There is also a separate building for dining with the guests, though we provide room service as well.
The cottage has an attached toilet and a balcony which opens up towards the main road. The entire Sittong valley can be seen from here.
Presently we have only one room cottage here. Although we have plenty of space available and more rooms will be constructed in the future.
Sittong is a large area with a major altitude difference between its upper and lower part. The upper Ghalayter or Toryok area is much cooler than the lower Ryang river area. This property is located somewhere in the middle of Sittong, neither too high making your winter days comfortable nor too low, so that you won't require a ceiling fan during the summer.
Since the host manages their own restaurant, you can get food for your specific order in most cases. In most homestays, the menu is fixed and you have to take the available limited option. Here the options are more and the cooking is much better.
