When the tip of the mountain is kissed by the first ray of the rising sun and gradually bathes in the golden hue, the seer and the seen dissolves into each other and becomes one and the same...bliss!

Welcome to Sikkim, where beauty and tranquility had a passionate encounter at the foot of Mt. Kanchenjunga. Standing at 8,586 m, it is the world's third highest mountain and is the crowning jewel of this mystical land of Sikkim. Kanchenjunga in Tibetan dialect means "Five Treasures of Snow" after its five high peaks. This mountain range is not mere a geological formation but rather the very identity and pride of this tiny Himalayan state. Kanchenjunga with its breathtaking beauty also abounds in myths and legends. The area around Kangchenjunga is said to be home to a mountain deity, called Dzö-nga or "Kangchenjunga Demon", a type of Yeti. For generations, there have been legends that there is a valley of immortality known as Beyul Demoshong hidden on its slopes. Kanchenjunga has always been sacred to the Sikkimese and carries a deeper religious significance.

Many cultures and religions flourished in its shadow, and has been a witness to the changing tides of history. For eons it has been standing as a guardian deity, silently watching all the human drama unfolding right underneath it. Civilizations were born, wars were fought, kingdoms rose and vanquished, cultures evolved, religions flourished, people migrated and yet the mighty Kanchenjunga stood unfazed, unchanged with all its majesty, grandeur and beauty till the modern times.

Apart from its natural beauty, the landscape at the foot of Kanchenjunga is dotted with as many as 200 beautiful Buddhist monasteries among which Pemayangtse, Dubdi, Tashiding, Enchey and Rumtek being the most popular and prominent. The amalgamation of spirituality, religion and aesthetics in these monuments will take you on a journey from the eyes to the soul. This region is also home to some of the most important historical sites like the "Throne of Norbugang", coronation site of the first monarch of Sikkim and the ruins of Rabdentse fort.

A favorite among trekkers, this place has a unique biodiversity that includes an interesting mix of wildlife species and the presence of plains, valleys, lakes, glaciers and spectacular, snowcapped mountains covered with ancient forests. With an area of 849.5 kms (328.0 sq mi), Kanchenjunga National Park was inscribed to the UNESCO World Heritage Sites list on July 17, 2016, becoming the first "Mixed Heritage" site of India.

So, join us in this journey across a land of bewildering natural beauty, breath-taking view of the mountains, pristine forests, gushing rivers, magnificent monasteries and colorful cultures.

Imagine a morning where you are looking at the breathtaking snow covered mountains with the air filled with the aroma of the world's finest tea. And as you take a sip, thousands of your taste buds replenished by its delicate flavor will take you on a subtle bliss.

But tea is more than a simple refreshing beverage; every sip of it contains a long history, a cultural heritage, untold stories of those thousands of tea pluckers and tale of an amazing journey from those gardens to your cup. When tea is talked about, one place immediately comes to the mind where this incredible journey of tea from a humble beginning to becoming an iconic beverage began from its hills. No place in the world has been more instrumental in popularizing the tea drinking culture than Darjeeling. Darjeeling is considered the “Mecca of tea” for tea connoisseurs from all over the world.

Presently there are 87 tea gardens in Darjeeling covering an aggregated area of about 19,000 hectares producing 10 million kg of tea annually and engaging 50 percent of the population. The cool and moist climate, the soil, the rainfall and the slopping terrains all combine to give Darjeeling tea its unique "Muscatel flavor" and "Exquisite Banquet". The combination of natural factors gives Darjeeling tea its distinction of " Champagne of tea". Darjeeling tea became the first Indian product to receive a GI tag (Geographical Indications of Goods) 2004-05 through the Indian Patent Office. In 2014 Darjeeling tea had the honor of becoming the official drink of FIFA World cup in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

But the history and hard work in making this iconic beverage can by no means be ignored. Tea planting in the

Indian district of Darjeeling began in 1841 by Arthur Campbell, a civil surgeon of the Indian Medical Service. In 1841, he brought seeds of the Chinese tea plant (Camellia sinensis) from Kumaun and began to experiment with tea planting in Darjeeling. Commercial development began during the 1850s.

The majesty of the mountains has time and again piqued human curiosity, imagination and temptation, and the audacity of the human spirit accepted the challenge and conquered them.

One such symbol of nature's benchmark to human courage is Mt. Everest. Standing at 8,848 meters in the Mahalangur mountain range in Nepal, this mountain peak is more than the highest peak in the world but also a testimony to the imperishable human spirit and courage, it represents people, culture, livelihood, folklore, myths and legends associated with it. Mt. Everest is the ultimate test for the adventurers trying to test their boundaries, and when it comes to climbing this natural monument, one group of people excel - Sherpas.

Sherpa (Tibetan: "eastern people", from shar "east" and pa "people") are an ethnic group from the most mountainous region of Nepal.

Originally from Tibet, the Sherpas moved to northeastern Nepal during the 1600s, and settled down in the Solukhumbu region — home to Mount Everest. Sherpa people also live in Tibet, Bhutan, as well as in the Indian states of Sikkim and the northern portion of West Bengal, specifically the district of Darjeeling.

Mt. Everest known as Chomolungma or "Goddess Mother of the Land" is a sacred mountain to the Sherpa people and is revered as an abode of the gods.

High altitude, rugged terrain and inhospitable weather conditions being their natural habitat, Sherpas' affinity to the mountains is evident in their rich history of mountaineering. Well adapted in these conditions, Sherpas were meant to be the sons of the mountains. The cheerful smiles and legendary strength of the Sherpas have been an integral part of Everest climbing expeditions from the very beginning. Indeed, very few significant successes have been achieved without them. Sherpas are renowned in the international climbing and mountaineering community for their hardiness, expertise, and experience at very high altitudes.

This association of the Sherpas with the mountains is legendary and has become an integral part of their tradition and history. In the course of time the Sherpa community has produced many world-class mountaineers, the most famous being Norgay Tenzing, the first person to reach the summit along with Sir. Edmund Hillary in 29 May 1953. After Tenzing Norgay number of world class mountaineers from Nawang Gombu, Ang Norbu Sherpa, Ang Tshering Sherpa, Babu Chiri Sherpa, Apa Sherpa, Phurba Tashi Sherpa and many more to the first, the most number of ascends, from the fastest to the youngest to scale Mt. Everest comes from this sturdy mountain community. No other community in the history of mountaineering has contributed more than the Sherpas.

And this tradition of mountaineering among the Sherpas is being past down from generation to generation making them synonymous with mountaineering. To honor this relation between man and the mountains and feats achieved by the Sherpa community, we here at Hub home stay have dedicated a room by naming it "Chomolungma". From decor, memorabilia to information we have tried to capture the essence of this love affair between man and the mountains accompanied by traditional cuisine. To make your stay more memorable one can pre book a special program called "Dine with an Everester" where one gets an opportunity to dine with the first Everester from Sikkim - Mr. Kazi Sherpa who scaled Mt. Everest twice. In this one off interaction with the mountaineering legend, get first hand insight on mountaineering, his experiences and story of his incredible journey.
