Hidden Forest experience
Hidden Forest is a homely retreat on the outskirts of Gangtok (2 kms) at 4500 ft asl. Hidden forest is spread over three acres of green garden with a variety of trees, bamboos, ferns, flowers, shrubs, lilies and orchids with a variety of birds and butterflies making this their home.
With Gangtok having a city like character, Hidden Forest is a charming and homely resort tucked in a quiet corner. The entire Retreat is connected with stone paved pathways, which lead up and down the hill into the dense forest and orchid nursery. The nursery was established in 1975, specializing in Orchid Tissue Culture, hybridization of Orchids, Alpine bulbs etc. Besides these there is even a collection of Himalayan Orchids.
Meals are served in an attractive cozy Dining Hall and is totally family run. Food is served in consultation with the guest. There is a Organic kitchen garden and meals are made out them. "Chaang", a local brew also can be served on request.
Hidden Forest is a kind of stay recommended for guests looking for a nature centric stay with some ethnic Sikkimese fervor.
