  1. Wonderful Place to stay

    The Mangwa Village Hut is a very nice place to stay. The location is fantastic. This place is on the hill top surrounded by the nature. The place is very clean and calm. There is a view from one side towards Teesta River along with green mountains and from another side Kanchenjunga is widely viewed on a clear sky day. We were lucky to see Kanchenjunga.
    We booked four Kanchenjunga Viewed cottages. Though, from the 2 cottages, the Kanchenjunga is not properly viewed. The rooms are very cozy and clean. The staff behaviour is very nice and helpful.
    The food is little costly especially the snacks and the amount of the snacks is not that much satisfactory based on the price.
    In addition, staff is very helpful on serving baby food and even we were allowed to prepare baby foods useing their kitchen.
    Overall, I liked the place very much. I definitely recommend this place. Worth spending few days here.
