Day Excursion

Once they set their foot in Martam and imbibe the warmth of the village, no travellers would want to venture out. But for those willing to stay longer at our homestay, we have curated a set of three popular destinations nearby. We can help you arrange a guide and transport.

  • Trip to Indo-China Border

    Route: Martam Village Homestay – Gangtok – Tsomgo Lake – Nathu-La – Baba Mandir – Back to Martam

    Martam is a good place for acclimatisation before you set off to the Indo-China border at Nathu-La over 12,000 feet. On the way you can take a yak safari around Tsomgo Lake, or drive along the alpine landscape towards Baba Mandir built in memory of Harbhajan Singh, an Indian Army sepoy who disappeared on border patrol in the 1960s.
