We stayed at The Shire from 4-8 May 2015 The stay was comfortable, host (Mr. Karma) was a nice guy and always available for us. The food was good and it was a very homely feeling. Mr Karma and his family were very nice and also assisted us plan our itinerary. It was a lovely vacation well spent at The Shire. Thank you for the hospitability. Warm Regards Mandar Joshi (Dombivli-Mumbai)

The Shire is an absolutely beautiful place to stay - the house and gardens are immaculate and Karma and his family are so welcoming! They really make you feel at home. There is a great view over Gangtok - the house is peaceful yet still very close by to the main centre of Gangtok. The freshly prepared local food that Karma's family cook in the restaurant was so tasty - my favourite food from my whole time in India! Spending some quality time with the family dog (outdoors) was also great, since I'd been very homesick from my own - he was very friendly and a delight to play with :) If you are travelling to Sikkim and don't hold an Indian passport please be aware that you need a special permit to cross the border - I was unaware of this and we were kept at the Border for a substantial time on the way there whilst this was sorted out - take plenty copies of your passport and visa and also several spare passport photos and you'll be able to obtain a permit to cross the border (extra permits also needed for visiting places further North in Sikkim). Also note that from here, the Himalayas can only be viewed on a clear day and if you get up early around 5am! Thanks for everything Karma and good luck with the Orchids!
