The guests have two options for accommodation during Kholeydai Festival 2023 -

Local Homestays

Create new friendships as you live with the local residents of Parengtar in their homes. Enjoy the warm hospitality of your host who will accommodate you in their home's extra rooms and ensure you have a comfortable stay. It is also an opportunity to understand the lived experiences of people here. Be mindful that these are not luxury hotels but personal, humble spaces that people have opened up for you. The essence of homestays remains true to its origins in Parengtar, where hosts gladly welcome guests into their homes and treat them like extended family members. This concept differs from the commercial homestay model in that it emphasises a more real and familial experience.
