The Birdsong Home was completed recently in February 2015, overlooking three acres of a farm. It is located on the slopes of Mirik town, away from the bustle of the main town. It is surrounded by forests and stunning views on all sides, with walking paths that cut across the mountainside. It comprises of two self-contained apartments in a gorgeously remote area of the Himalayas, and overlooks tea gardens, orange trees, and a small village. It's fresh air and stunning scenery will rejuvenate your mind, body and soul. A quiet and peaceful retreat, ideal for nature lovers and hill walkers, the Birdsong Home also offers an easy commute to all the sights in the Darjeeling district
The Birdsong Home overlooks a mountain range where you can see the lights of Kerseong, a small town near Darjeeling, glittering at night from the outdoor wooden deck or the large terrace. The organic farm has plenty of herbs and fresh vegetables to cook with. Our cook is also available to make fresh steamed momos and other delicacies for you!
Mirik town has a lake which makes it particularly scenic for tourists with a promenade surrounding it. Boating and horse riding are popular activities. A large buddhist monastery overlooks the town. You can get a lift going into town, or walk up the steep road (30-45 mins)
The apartments are cleaned daily, and are stocked with supplies. We can also arrange for groceries from the market to be delivered to the house (Rs. 100 carrying charges)
