Mahadev Chhetri is a young local villager. He has worked in the hotel industry in Delhi and Bangalore and then spent 7 years in Saudi Arabia in the public sector. When he returned to his hometown 7 years ago, he found that there was an increased requirement for homestays in the region. This made him open up his own home and offer stay to tourists. Mahadev is a warm and friendly person and his experience in the hospitality business has helped him to understand the needs of guests, which he tends to with care.

Raimatang is situated at an altitude of 2300 ft above sea level. Summer temperatures range between a minimum of 22 degrees and a maximum of 30 degrees Celcius.

Raimatang is located in the Western part of Buxa Tiger Reserve. Our homestay in Raimatang is located right next to the forest bungalow. This location gives you a chance to spot some local fauna like barking deer, peacocks, and the like. The region is home to many elephants as well. Hence a stay here can provide some exciting moments.
The lawn has flowers blooming in abundance, providing a riot of colours that make an enchanting foreground to the main structure of the homestay. The homestay itself is painted in bright colours and although the property is simple in layout, it is very attractive.
Our homestay consists of a ground floor with parking area and kitchen and the first floor has 4 rooms towards the front and 2 rooms at the back. There is a covered area on the first floor, open from the sides - this is the dining area. The entire property is a wooden structure.
An interesting fact - the first floor was constructed at a height of 10-12 feet from the ground. This was done keeping in mind that guests could sit out in the dining space and not only get a view of the surrounding mountains and forests but also get a chance to espy the odd elephant, peacock or barking deer.
Most of the cooking here is still done on the wooden "chulha", which gives the food a unique woodsy flavour.
The property has parking space. It also has a lovely flower garden where you can spend a lot of time enjoying the colourful blooms.
Our homestay is located next to the Raimatang forest bungalow. The vehicle goes right up to the property and can be parked under it.
