We came with our 8 and 5 year old sons and had the hotel all to ourselves since it was just post-monsoon. The location is stunning - views could not be better, and the rooms are very nice. My one feedback to the hotel is regarding the walks. We came wanting very much to take long walks, and we managed, but it was hard to extract information from the hotel on what were the trekking options, distance, etc. They have a nice welcome note in the room when you arrive. I suggest they write another one, detailing the treks. The manager who was giving the info had clearly not done any of the walks and was very unclear. Even booking taxis was difficult! We wanted to see the Kanchanganga view one morning but were told we had to book a taxi the night before, which seemed preposterous since Rumtek, only 5km away, had dozens of taxi drivers. The hotel also seems to have information only about 2-3 days worth of walking. They should find scout out treks in the area, within a couple of hours' drive, and then guests will have activities to stay for a week, not just 3 days.
Here are the four walks we did, all with very nice hotel staff or guides, all starting on foot from the hotel.
TREK #1: trek to Rumtek. 4 hours, with kids. This trek starts off going through the paddy fields, then joins the main road briefly, then continues up a lovely long stair pathway lined with houses, and then reaches the main road, from where you can walk to Rumtek monastery, reaching just in time for lunch at some of the yummy roadside noodle and beer places. Then a taxi walk. Even though part of this is on the road, it's a beautiful high road with incredible views. TREK #2: Kanchanjanga view point. This is a trek straight up hill, straight up a mountain, to see Kanchanganga views. It takes most hotel trekkers between 3-4 hours. We turned back after two because the path was very bad post-monsoon. Very intense. Mostly straight up hill in the forest, but with a gentle upward walk through the paddy fields and by a meditation retreat center in the beginning. TREK #3: to the water fall. about 3 hours round trip. This walk starts off on the road to Siliguri, with beautiful views that at some points are along a ridge, looking in both directions. After about 45 minutes you turn into a village and begin a steep descent along village staircases for maybe 45 minutes. This was glorious. Really wonderful farm lands that we had come to Sikkim to see, and all the houses have a view of a waterfall! (You can't beat that, can you.) You end at a pavilion where you can view the waterfall from a distance - you can't get close enough to swim. Then trek back up, and buy rum from a tea pot from the shop at the top of the steps. TREK #4: Village walk to the school and in the neighboring hilltop village, then a walk through the back lanes of Martan village, visiting the local school, a christian school and even inside local people's houses.
