Set four kilometres outside Mirik, Rangbhang doesn’t offer the usual trappings of the Darjeeling hills — Kanchendzonga view, lakeside walks, shopping, restaurants, tea estates, toy train or the Teesta. In their stead, Rangbhang suggests delicate moments of quaintness. Located amidst acres of orange plantations, the village is home to the Gurung community, most of whom are followers of Kabir Panth, a way of life envisaged by the fifteenth-century poet and saint. The two homestays, featuring three tastefully decorated rooms, are charming instances of a different way of life. Meals are vegetarian but delightfully appetising.
