Nazraana, a walk to remember through the art of storytelling
Have you ever wondered what we get to keep from the people we cross paths with? Or the conversations that move us? Nothing except the way they see the world. Their Nazraana! In this 5 hour workshop, from 11 am to 4 pm on weekends, we will invoke the storytellers in ourselves by seeking stories in the ordinary, unnoticed scenes of life. We will take a 'story walk' such as a 'photo walk' but without connections with any electronic devices such as our phones or cameras. We will be touring nooks and corners of the city where nothing 'tourist-y' really happens because, trust me, that is where life bustles! We will try to capture all with our mind, learn to articulate fictional descriptions, practice free writing and truly experience the meaning of the word 'connection'. Also, huddle over a wholesome and hearty home-cooked lunch!
Dine and Tour in a Forest Garden
We will start the tour by introducing you to the simple concept of Permaculture and our zero waste philosophy. We will then take you through a guided walk in our forest where we will showcase some of our working models of waste management and our integrated farming system. We will then take you for a walk towards our terraced gardens and past a bamboo bridge over a gushing mountain stream to introduce you to our dwellings in our forest - natural buildings that is handcrafted by mostly using just mud, bamboo, wood and stones. The guests are then free to enjoy the various spaces in our forest that appeal to their senses, from sitting by a waterfall to exploring our forest trails to discovering some more secrets of the forest. We will serve lunch at 13:30 hrs. It will be a treat of local cuisine and vegetables that are sourced from our forest farm or from other local organic farmers. If you would like to customize the whole experience as an evening one (15:00 hrs to 21:00 hrs.), pls let us know during the time of booking. We can also extend the experience to include a bonfire evening and stay in one of our accommodations (charges will be extra).

Hike / Run in Himalayan Forest Trails
We will meet up in our forest garden (8 Mile, Gorabari) at 6:00 a.m. and start a short hike to the forest trail. The hike would also be a perfect warm-up before we start the run. During this hike, you will pass through a picture-perfect hamlet offering incredible views of the mountains and encounter farmers practising organic farming since ages. The run can be customised to suit the group. We could either do a short 5 km run or extend it to a half marathon (21 km). Either ways, the plan would be to take it easy and soak in the fresh and crisp mountain air. The running trail would be a flat stretch and for more adventurous folks we can even do a trail that snakes its way up and down the forest. We can also customize the whole experience as just a hike instead of a run. An additional activity that we can also indulge ourselves in is - Plogging! We will pick up whatever amount of litter that we can and create Plastic Eco Bricks which will be later used for construction at Tieedi.
Go for Gastronomy
"Go for Gastronomy" as the title suggests is a Culinary tour. In this experience, I will take you on a unique stroll through some of the oldest market places and hidden pice-hotels to tantalize your taste buds with the best local delicacies of Darjeeling. Tibetan, Newari, Nepali, Chinese, North Eastern, Indo-British, and Tribal culinary arts transform this tour into an experience worth taking. Dining with the locals, chit-chatting with them, and understanding their food culture are highlights of this activity. This is a tour on foot to discover and explore the most distinctive cuisines of this part of the country. In addition to the gastronomical exposure, rediscovering the stories behind every recipe is a must to do. While the Brits escorted their fish n chips, the Tibetans brought in their Chebureki. Bongs hopped in with their spicy delicacies that everyone set their hearts on. Call upon the Darjeeling Tea - the best champagne in the world to rejoice after the meal. On this tour, eat as you have never eaten before!
Hike to a Local Farm
We'll leave around mid-morning from Mirik for a day's forest trail walk and hike down to a village farm about 5kms away. It won't be a long difficult walk, but the forest is rough at certain parts. So please wear comfortable shoes/sandals. We used to walk on this route in the earlier days when public transport was few or expensive. However, that also means that it is a quiet and peaceful walk in today's times, literally in the arms of Nature. We will aim to reach the farm for lunch where we will relax for some time till we come back to Mirik. At the farm, you may engage in some of the farm activities or simply wander around. This hike is also perfect for small families with children who would like to witness farm animals and farming activities. Other things to note Please be aware of sunburns and exposure to outdoor temperatures, pollen, allergies and pack your lotions, etc. accordingly. Do let us know in advance if you prefer vegetarian food or non-vegetarian food, and have any other dietary restrictions.
