A Home Stay close to the Suntalekhola River. This is the last accommodation in the Samsing faribasty area before you reach Suntalekhola. The Homestay is managed by experienced owners who will make your stay memorable.
The name Suntalekhola is formed of two words, Suntale meaning oranges and khola meaning small hill stream in Nepali. The small stream nearby named after the popular oranges produced here is quite a popular destination for tourists visiting western Dooars. There is Suntalekhola Resort of WBFDC located in the vicinity. This accommodation is popularly also known as Suntalekhola River Camp. Our Homestay is the last private residence before you enter the forest area near WBFDC resort. We have two well-furnished rooms with attached washrooms installed with geysers and 24hr running water.
Humro Home here is a Suntalekhola Homestay located at Samsing in the Dooars area within the Darjeeling district. The Homestay is situated at a unique location where the mighty Himalayas begins to raise their head from Dooars Plain. The area is surrounded by forest and a local village Faribusty.
Food and Dining
Hosts here are well-groomed in hospitality and they have been managing the affairs of the Forest Resort for quite some time. Food as in all the homestays around is sumptuous and hygienic but basic. If you are very specific about your food, you should discuss your requirement with our helpdesk before confirming the booking. Last-moment requests on the spot may not be served as the nearest market is at Mateli about 12 km away. Standard food consists of Rice, Roti, Chicken, Fish, Egg, vegetables etc. A menu can be found in the Homestay room where further details about the food are mentioned.
Location / Accessibility
Our Homestay offers a bird's view of the valley down below. You may end up spending a lot of time in your room and the veranda around. If you feel like walking, walk down to the Suntalekhola River hardly a few minutes walk away. This is a common tourist attraction that brings tourists from all around and you will find it a privilege to stay so close to the attraction. About a 5 km uphill trek will take you to the Mouchaki beat of Neora Valley National Park. A point worth visiting for the views even if you are not a wildlife or birding enthusiast. The Rocky Island is just 4 km away and can be reached in less than 10 minutes by vehicle. If you want to travel further, the entire Western Dooars can be visited by making your base here. Gorumara forests are 45 minute's drive, the Chilapata forests are not much further either. The Jaldhaka Paren Bindu is about an hour through a shortcut road that not every driver is aware of. Even the Jaldapara forests can be part of your day visit itinerary from here.

From the Samsing bus stand, our resort is another 4.5 km away. Shared vehicles are available from all over the region to reach Chalsa and from Chalsa to Samsing. But for the last 4.5 km, it is a little difficult to arrange a vehicle unless pre-booked. We do arrange for vehicles on request by our guests. The Distance and expected travel time from places around are given below. Siliguri – 85 km, 2.5 Hours Jalpaiguri – 65 km, 2 hours Lataguri – 40 km, 1.25 hours Jaldapara – 80 km, 2 hours Kalimpong – 100 km, 3 hours Darjeeling – 110 km, 3.5 hours Gangtok – 150 km, 4.5 hours.
The road to Samsing from Chalsa / Meteli is a south-northbound road. The road continues further beyond Samsing and leads to Suntalekhola. So basically you will have to continue to drive on the same road after crossing Samsing market. About 4 km from the market you will reach Suntalekhola where you will find the road blocked and further travel is not allowed on vehicles. This is for general tourists, tell the guard you are going to Humro Home or to Nriprajs home and they will let you pass. About 20 meters ahead on the road on your left the last house you see is our Homestay here.
