PaliGhar - Our Vision

PaliGhar, a scenic countryside farm-stay, situated at Echhey, is about a 30 minute drive from Kalimpong town. The farm with 3+ acres of field land along with our own perennial water source offers you a multi-dimensional experience of a farm stay based on the concept of a home-stay.

Since it’s inception, PaliGhar continues to promote local architecture and craftsmen to support and uplift the livelihood of our local community. The concept of PaliGhar was to provide guests with a real understanding of rural life. The cottages were designed taking inspiration from traditional architectural styles to perfectly blend into the rural landscape of a himalayan village.

Today, most of these traditional building forms are a dying art and thus, the PaliGhar envisions to safeguard our rich heritage while providing guests with a real understanding of the rural life. However, we have otherwise not compromised on the quality of comfort for guests that we are well aware of.

PaliGharThe Property

PaliGhar consists of only 2 individual cottages offering only 2 guest rooms for now with attached bathrooms, a verandah and an in-house kitchen, the hygiene level of which is maintained with the highest international standard. We offer a variety of authentic food and selected cuisines to meet the taste of our guests. Guests may feel free to help pick seasonal vegetables and fruits from the garden, eggs from the poultry and also join the PaliGhar team in preparing a meal to learn the art of cooking Nepali cuisines.

During your stay in PaliGhar, you can also indulge in getting hands-on experiences in the fields, visit neighbouring villages, interact with the local community members, indulge in nature therapy and learn more about the rural lifestyle while exploring the countryside.

Cottages

The main idea of building traditional houses was to preserve our culture, as preferences for concrete structures have taken over even in villages across the hills. The building materials used reduces the impact on natural resources and cuts down environmental pollution as well.

The cottages of Palighar exhibit a typical village house architecture that have been built using mud bricks, ‘ekra’- knitted bamboo and completely plastered with mud.

It is believed that in mud-brick houses the bricks have a thermo-regulation property, keeping the house cool during summers and warm during winters.

Rooms

The interiors of the room have an authentic, rusty and earthy feel to it. Each room comprise of all the basic amenities which meets the expected standard of comfort viz. comfortable bed, coffee table, chairs and an attached bathroom with all the necessary provisions.

Each room has large French windows that permit maximum natural light to fall in, this also enables guests to enjoy the landscape from within. These windows thus a contemporary touch to the otherwise traditional structure. At the entrance of the room, we have a spacious verandah, large enough for the guests to unwind, read or simply laze around to enjoy the serenity of this faraway getaway.
