Dzongu Lee

Homestay in Dzongu

Across the river from Mangan with dreamy views back up the Teesta Valley, this simple but lovable half-timbered homestay is lost amid the birdsong and chirupping insects of jungle-thick woodland in the diffuse village of Lingdong. English-speaking hostess Rinjong cooks superb food and is very helpful with suggestions for excursions.

If you send scanned documents to Rinjong a few days ahead, she can apply for your permits (the fees are extra to the room cost) and have them waiting for you at the Sangkalang checkpoint. (Be aware that doing so requires her to spend time and taxi fares on a trip to Mangan during work hours, so cancelling a booking will cost her money.)
