Rural festivals

Rural Festivals are a great way to actively engage the rural communities in holistic conservation of their own cultural heritage. The festivals also become an important platform for training of the rural communities in community-based tourism and self-expression. Based on the unique cultures of the villages we curate special festivals which help to promote it and preserve it for future generations. The festivals are carefully crafted on the basis of the local resources available within the villages, adding to its cyclic economy.



The highlight of the “Annual Harvest Festival” is the ‘Kholey Dai Celebrations’ which involves the harvesting of rice. Rice is an integral part of our daily meals and life, here the visitors will be allowed to have a glimpse as well as participate in the production of rice.
In Parengtar the visitors will reside with the villagers, allowing them to taste the local flavours of the village steeped in authenticity and culture. Parent's traditional art and craft forms will be presented, allowing visitors a better understanding of the village and its residents.
Glimpses into the everyday lives of the residents are presented through folk storytelling sessions conducted alongside a bonfire, and hikes across Parengtar’s stunning landscape as well as their local games.
The festival also hopes to introduce Nepali folk music to the visitors through enthralling music performances, by artists who have been invited from across Darjeeling and Kalimpong districts.
