We travel,some of us forever,to seek other places, other lives,other souls.-Anais Nir This Homestay is situated in peaceful valley of Pastanga(East Sikkim)23 km away from mg marg Gangtok. I makes you feel always close to the environment -the sound of the running river,the chirp of the birds,the cry of the crickets,the flowers of spring,the dew of winter morning and mostly the first fall of sun's rays on the mighty Mt.Kanchenjunga. The concept of homestay first started in the village in collaboration with Mr.P.D.Rai (M.P.) and Dr.B.B.Rai and the organisation was known as Khedi Eco-tourism Eco-development Promotion (KEEP). It was started in the year 2004. When it was first started the organisation had 4 Homestays,all with one view in mind-the protection of environment. As village 10 km away from town, you can find scenic beauty of the landscape,different types of flora and fauna, different communities living together with their own unique culture. This movement was also started to bring awareness among the people to protect the environment to the old and the young. All the members gathered in the evening had the showcase of different tribal dances, food, songs, play musical instruments like flute, sarangi, binayo, machunga in the evening and have peaceful village walk in d morning. After some years KEEP dissolved but the owner of this Homestay wanted to carry out this work and kept the name of this Homestay Malinggo Homestay. Malinggo is a type of bamboo which is commonly found in Sikkim and used for different purposes. This bamboo is very useful to make furnitures, flutes. This bamboo grows in large scale which can be home for different animals ,birds and food for red panda. Shoots of this bamboo is famous for making pickles.
