Far off from the hustle and bustle of city life, Daragaon Retreat is a home away from home. this charming home retreat is just a 10-minute drive away from Pelling on the Yuksam-Khechepari road and is run by Shiva and his wife Radha. The couple also has a dog name teetee who helps the couple in greeting the guests.

From the main road you take up a short hike climbing the slippery stairs until you reach a bright yellow sign announcing “Daragaon Village retreat”.
