It was impromptu decision when we headed to Baasbari farm with my friends.

Welcomed by a hot cup of Darjeeling tea we headed to our bamboo cottage .The architecture of it left us spellbound. Chic rooms with amenities beyond expectations, that too local was the difference.

The food being simple, organic and delicious made us overeat. The barbeque evening with some local brew besides the bonfire and endless conversation was a perfect combination for a nippy winter evening.

Sipping my morning tea in the balcony, overlooking the far away hills; listening to the morning music of the birds and the river was like a dream come true. Walking in the ten acres farm was an enriching experience.

The only feeling I had during my stay was that I could live there forever.
