Chatakpur is a forest village situated under Senchal Wildlife Sanctuary at 7600 ft. Its population consists of only 19 families. Chatakpur came into existence during the time of the British. They required wood to build their homes and therefore put some local villagers to work on felling trees here. Slowly their numbers grew and eventually this small village emerged as an independent location.

Me and my husband stayed at Phurba Humro Home. The property is very well maintained, neat and clean. What made the stay excellent is a combination of all essential amenities like power, water, geyser, spacious room with 4 thick blankets, tables, chairs, charging points, western toilet with tissue rolls and towel. The modern amenities were a pleasant surprise but helped us a lot. Also, the warmth of the sincere hospitality where Phurba suggested we can use the room heater (at a nominal additional cost), the tall flask of hot drinking water, amazing home cooked food - all these made our stay a pure bliss. We stayed two nights that included all meals and accommodation at a very reasonable cost. I'll highly recommend Phurba's Humro Home homestay to small and group travellers seeking a home away from home in the eco village of Chatakpur. Oh, and did I mention that on a clear weather you get to see the whole range of Kanchenjunga from the room itself! To check this out you must book a room at Phurba's home stay.

Chatakpur .....Located at an altitude of 7,887 feet, Chatakpur is a paradise for nature lovers as one can get a spectacular view of the imposing mountain range of Kanchenjunga and at the same time experience the overwhelming lush green forest in a quiet village setting with a population of only around 90 people and 20 village houses.
Chatakpur is just 7 Kms away from Sonada. Humro Home Phurba Homestay is the perfect place to stay and experience nature in Chatakpur. I was lucky to spot the place. Thanks to Phurba and his family for their wonderful gesture through out our stay. Breakfast , Lunch and Dinner were very good. Overall a very good experience through out our stay here... ...Looking forward to visit again.

Excellent homestay...... One of the best in Chatakpur...... Worth coming up the difficult journey...... It is advisable to contact Mr Purba Sherpa who will arrange a car to come up (tentative Rs 1500/- will be charged for the car)...... The road is very rough..... One should not try to drive on his own or hire a car who is not used to with this road..... Mr Purba Sherpa is an excellent person who even took us to the 360° view point early morning...... One can contact Humro Home online to book Mr Purba's homestay...... Humro Home is also an excellent organization and very helpful......
