Mr.Sushil Pradhan is a local resident who used to be in the construction business. He started his homestay about 7 years ago and moved away from his construction work. Although the homestay was started on a small scale, gradually it became his main source of livelihood. A soft-spoken, gentle-mannered person, he is attentive towards his guests and also guides them as far as what they can see or visit in the area during their stay.

Apart from running and managing the homestay, he is also very actively involved in social work and works for the upliftment of the local villagers.

Orientation

"Takdah" is a Lepcha term meaning mist or fog and if you visit Takdah, you will realise the aptness of the name. The famous Takdah Cantonment is located a short distance from Takdah bazaar and used to be the hub of the British military residences during their colonial days.  The renowned Takdah club, built in the year 1902, is now a Forest rest house.

At an altitude of about 4000 feet, Takdah has very pleasant weather round the year. It is surrounded immediately 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.
