Surrounded by towering mountains and a flowing river, the Club Mahindra Baiguney Resort in Sikkim is the perfect place to unwind. It is located in West Sikkim, which is 3 km from Jorethang,95 Km from Bagdogra Airport anda 2-hour drive from Darjeeling. Spread over 6.5 acres on the banks of the river Rangeet, it is cosy and comfortable, with all facilities to ensure that your stay is a memorable one. You could spend hours by the riverside, simply watching birds, relax by the pool basking in the pleasant afternoon sun, play games with your children, work out in the gym, or go exploring the region on foot.The resort has been designed to emphasise the natural beauty of the surroundings. Whether it is the landscaping or the interior decoration, the local influence is visible. This is true for other aspects of the resort too, such as the food, which is delicious and includes local cuisine, or the staff members playing local instruments and entertaining you with folk songs and dances.

 

Club Mahindra Baiguney Resort has 30 rooms, all in the central structure, with a view of the towering mountains. There is a swimming pool, as well as spa, for your indulgence, a multi-cuisine restaurant to titillate your taste buds and a free Wi-Fi is also available in the lobby. From Carom, Chess to other board games, #HappyHub has enough activities to keep you busy for hours. There is a small library to keep the bookworm happy, and hobby kits are available for those seeking to indulge in creative activities. The unspoilt surroundings of the resort are the perfect spot for birdwatching. Whether you go for a walk along the road, or simply sit by the riverside, you will spot many varieties of birds, with ease. Walk to the nearby villages and experience life in these mountains or climb up a hill to see the first rays of the sun fall on the mighty Kanchenjunga before rising over the valley. We also arrange for treks according to your interests and capabilities, along with competent guides.

 

The cuisine of Sikkim is a delightful medley of Indian, Nepalese and Tibetan. What should be definitely tried when in Sikkim? Gyakho, a soup made with vegetables and meat, brought to simmer over a charcoal fire and Pakku, a mutton curry served with rice. Food that is fermented is very much a part of the cuisine of Sikkim. A popular fermented item is the Chhurpi, a dairy product that is fermented and made of cow milk. It has a mild, sour taste and is added to soups and pickles. A usual pairing is Chhurpi with Ningro, a wild fern. And of course, there’s Thukpa, a noodle soup with either vegetables or meat and momos with assorted fillings, both of these are popular street food of Baiguney, Sikkim. Try them on your outings to the town. And then there is Chhaang, a fermented, cereal-based alcoholic brew. Your visit to Sikkim is incomplete without trying this one!

 

The natural wealth of Sikkim is breath-taking, and no matter where you go, you are bound to lose yourself in the awe-inspiring landscapes. From watching the sunrise over the Kanchenjunga to spotting birds, and lakes with stories to tell, there are a lot of beautiful places to visit in Sikkim for nature lovers. West Sikkim has a rich cultural heritage, fostered by the earliest kings of Sikkim who made this their capital. Ancient monasteries dot the mountains, ruins of the palaces take you back in time, and old and new temples complete the experience.

 

One of the holiest festivals in Sikkim is celebrated at the Tashiding Monastery. It marks the opening of a vessel containing holy water on the 15th day of the first month of the Tibetan Calendar. The level of the water is believed to be a sign of the fortunes in the coming year. The Maghey Mela is held in January every year to showcase the local culture. It is a celebration of all the indigenous communities of the region, who put up stalls selling their traditional costumes, crafts as well as food items. The Tibetan New Year or Losar is celebrated in January/February with grand celebrations at the monasteries. This festival in Sikkim is celebrated over three days, concluding on the new year, with the monks performing the Cham dance, dressed in colourful costumes. Some of the monasteries even have fireworks. Apart from these festivities, there are also a few scenic trails that one can embark on and truly take in the culture of Sikkim. Meet the locals, savour their food and enjoy the local culture of Sikkim as you travel. Here are a few more points to include in your journey when you visit the Baiguney resort.

 

Chakung is one of the highest viewpoints near Baiguney, with an impressive view of the Rangeet Valley. A watchtower here offers a superb view of the sunrise, with the first rays falling on Mount Kanchenjunga, slowly lighting up the valley below. Sacred to Hindus as well as Buddhists, the Khecheopalri Lake is a serene haven in the hills. Nestled in a valley, the lake attracts a variety of migratory birds and is an excellent spot for birdwatching and nature lovers. The confluence of the Teesta and Rangeet River is a grand sight and is a must-visit if you are in the region. The confluence is at Triveni, near Melli, about 30 km from the resort. Apart from the view, this is a great place for birdwatching, and also for water sports.
