When this bungalow was under the British regime, the Lama family used to be its caretakers. Once the original owners left, the property was left in their care and in due course, they became its natural owners. Inspired by the number of neighboring bungalows being turned into homestays, Mr.Lama has recently converted her bungalow accordingly as another accommodation option for tourists visiting the area.
Mrs.Lama is a housewife and her husband is in service. She mainly runs the homestay by herself. A pleasant lady by nature, she is attentive towards her guest's needs and does her best to ensure their comfort.Even More...

At an altitude of about 4000 feet, Takdah has very pleasant weather round the year. It is surrounded by towering pine trees, beyond which lies the natural forest area. If you venture out for a walk along the paths of Takdah in the early morning or late evening, don't be surprised if you venture across a wild boar or a barking deer which has wandered out of this outlying forest.
In the early 1900s, Takdah used to be a British military cantonment and during this time, several bungalows sprang up as accommodations for the British officers. These buildings now belong to the locals and some of them were converted into schools and offices, while some are now run as tourist accommodations. The famous Takdah Club is now the forest rest house.
