About Khawas Homestay

We were the first ones to start home stay at Icchey Gaon in 2011. When we started our homestay with only 2 rooms, we had no idea about who would come to stay with us. Then, some guests turned up because they did not get rooms in nearby Kalimpong during the tourist-rush season and we were honoured by our first guest. The guests went back home and asked one of their friends, who happened to be a tour-operator to check out our place. So, came the first tour operator TRAVEL MONK to Icchey Gaon and they suggested about all the things we needed to do to bring in more guests. Soon TRAVEL MONK started sending more guests to our home stay and from two rooms we had to build seventeen rooms in last eleven years to cater our guests. Our neighbours were also encouraged by our success and today we have around 20 home stays at Icchey Gaon.

Excellent service, praiseworthy hospitality, magnificent view and friendly people. The short trek from Eccheygaon to Sillerygaon, with the best guide Mr. D. K. Khawas, was the most memorable thing of our entire trip.

It was getting close to 3:00 o'clock. In the evening when we arrived at the homestay, and it was becoming dark. All we could see that night were the many lights emanating from residences and hotels perched on far-off hills; we had no idea what the morrow would bring. The adage "a picture is worth a thousand words" is true, but believe me when I tell that the vista this homestay affords cannot be adequately described by any number of beautiful photographs or words. Their balcony and roof have AMAZING morning views with a beautiful sky. Since you have to travel a few stairs to get to the homestay, steps might unfortunately be a bit of an issue for the elderly. However, Mr. D. K. Khawas will make the appropriate preparations if you let him know about it. Mr. Khawas and Hari Chacha exhibit the finest level of hospitality in both their conduct and their service.

Great view and hospitality. A Must try option at iche gaon . Family is very good and the food was lip smacking. Being a small village ,don't expect 5 start places here . Just enjoy the mountain and calmness of the valley
Hospitality and quality of food was very nice and the behaviour is too good.
