Homestay is a popular form of hospitality and lodging, a deeper understanding of the everyday life of the local people. Homestay tourism is pretty much famous these days all around the world. It is mostly located in the rural cottages, sometimes in remote areas.
The homestays have very few rooms contrary to the hotels so the guests receive plenty of individual attention as the family who resides there runs the homestay. We Himalayan people consider guests as God or there is a notion “Aththi Devo Bhava”. We find it a huge honor to have guests at our homes and we go out of our ways to please them.We in Ashmita Trek and Tours offer you excellent opportunity to be in Homestays in different destinations i.e. in Darjeeling and Sikkim.
