Pulungdung Homestay

Who Am I
Pulungdung, AKA Plungdung, is a relatively new homestay destination in the north of West Bengal, barely 3.5 kilometers away from Sukhia Pokhri.

It’s a quaint, little village, away from the hustle and bustle of more popular tourist destinations in the vicinity. The roads are clean, and almost every household has some flowery plants in the front, which look really nice. Go out for an early morning walk, breathe in fresh air devoid of any pollution, watch the sun popping out behind the mountains – no car will honk at you with angry glare; you are alone, with yourself, all the time. Isn’t that what holidaying means? May not be to all, but definitely to us.

There is a small monastery nearby, and a big nursery. A couple of hours’ visit to Tukre can be made, amidst tea gardens. And of course, one can go to other famous tourist spots also.

We stayed at Mr. Umesh Lepcha’s homestay.

It offers nice views from the terrace during sunrise and sunset, with the mountains in the backdrop.

Located right next to the main road, it still doesn’t have any sound pollution. But what impressed us the most was the hospitality that we had received. They really made us feel like their extended family members. Even on the last day when we had to leave early, Leena madam woke up early to prepare breakfast for us. They took all the trouble with a smiling face, so that we could feel at home.

They even changed the décor later on.

The flowering plants in their house were so beautiful that they would immediately bring down the stress level.

A special mention must be made of Phingo, the guy who was managing everything. He was very caring, and also anxious, lest we feel uncomfortable at any time.

Phingo and Pravesh (CC). Their hair style might look a bit scary, but believe me, they were very polite and well mannered.
