Property Description

Welcome to Backpackers Den - Sikkim, our new pet friendly hostel in this amazing city! We can’t wait to welcome you into our family and show you the best time possible in the city we know and love.

What sets us apart from other hostels is that we are extremely social and casual, we offer you various unique facilities like bird watching, camping, bonfire, gardening space, kitchen hire , treks , hires , walking tours and many more to ensure our guests leave with the best experience.

Surrounded by lush, green valleys & snow capped mountains , sits our house nested in the hills of Rumtek, this unique property is a story of its own. The property is very huge with sufficient space for you to camp and relax.

This property is ideal and best for workcations and for people who love walking, photography, bird watching ,meditation ,sports or just relaxing in nature. There are no roads, no traffic, no noise, no pollution and is away from any unneeded hassle of the the city, we urge you to come here for natural detoxification. We also are the first hostel in the North East of India , with a swimming pool (free to all guests at all times)

The area is huge hence we grow our own fresh organic food .If you are interested in gardening yourself fell free to jump down with our gardening gear, plant a seed, grow a fruit the whole property is open to you. Also we are planning to offer kitchen hiring facilities where you can hire our kitchen for a specific amount of time to cook the meals you love cooking. Do not forget to share though. The owner is quite foodie in general ;)

The whole property and rooms have a unique woody feel, we often get complimented for the tastefulness involved in decorating the house. We have a amazing coffee house with amazing views of the mountain as well.

Since it can get cold in winters we also offer bonfire and barbecue sessions. Our boat is completely pet friendly and we love pets ourselves.

If you love bird watching and working from the mountains you are in the right place. Sikkim is filled with exotic birds and animals, and our den has very frequent visitors. Your morning will definitely start with birds chirping and singing. You can easily enjoy bird watching whilst sipping a hot cup of coffee in out amazing café.

We keep adding stuff as requested by guests so make sure we are only improving :)

Lush greenery, fresh food, bonfires, company that make you feel like you are at home and an amazing pool to jump into. There is nothing more you can ask for! We came here for 2 days fearing it’s too far away from Gangtok, but we ended up staying here for more than 45 days(thanks to remote jobs xD). The property is perfect for families and backpackers alike. The power backup and Wi-Fi is a bit wobbly but you get used to life without too much dependency on the internet. Plus the fireflies look brighter during
