Takdah

Norgenma Lama is a local villager who has converted her home into a homestay about 5 years ago. Her father came to own this bungalow, like many other influential locals did, when the British left India in 1947.

She and her family members are actively involved in hosting tourists who come to visit Takdah with the intention to spend some leisure time.

Orientation

When the British left in 1947, all the bungalows that they had constructed for the tea planters were handed over to the prominent and influential locals. Some of them went on to convert the properties into homestays to accommodate tourists.

There are a few bungalows that are still available at their pristine best. This is one of them. The bungalow has not been modified or renovated, but has been maintained to the best capacity of the owners. The bungalow was constructed in 1912, and hence is more than a century old now, yet much of the interior and exterior remains as it was at the time of construction.
