The hotel is very basic but clean and with hot water. It is also in a perfect part of town for restaurants, cafes and walks to sights. Downfall is that the place does not have heating so when it's cold...it's cold. They do rent room heaters but they give off such a glow that you end off turning them off in the middle of the night and they really didn't provide that much heat. They way to go is to ask for a hot water bottle when you are ready to go bed. It kept the bed cosy and warm all night long.

We got up at 3:30am as instructed by our driver so that we could go to Tiger's Point to view the Sunrise. But, unfortuntaley, the Sun God was not in a mood to please us and only came out for few seconds.

... of us from the occasionally claustrophobic atmosphere of living on a tea farm in the middle of nowhere; fifthly (is that even a word?), we had been issued 6 month multiple-entry visas to India and a multiple entry one for Nepal which meant we wouldn't have to bother faffing with visas; and lastly, Jenna wanted to drink Darjeeling tea in Darjeeling. So it was that at 6.30 on Monday morning we were trudging up the hill from Deepak's house to Phikkal. It had rained during the ...
... gas station food. Gupta Uncle and Uncle Daughter went inside to eat, but we GOGs stayed on the restaurant’s outside patio and ordered tea – just tea -- black, no milk, no sugar. The waiter wanted to know if we would prefer ice tea, an offer we declined. Our drinks arrived in plastic mugs that didn’t look like they had been washed in a while. The tea was steaming hot, though, which I hoped would be enough to kill any germs that might be on the mug. To ...
... 8217;s accommodation and we had a gorgeous dinner cooked for us again. Somehow in the hour or so that the guides disappeared they had managed to get drunk beyond comprehension, and while hearing them attempt to outline the plan for tomorrow was great fun, having them demand we watch them singing while we were trying to eat went a bit far! We left them to it, but with the kitchen right beside our room, were still subjected to the singing anyway!
