The rhythmic jingle of Tung, Sonada, Ghum has been all too familiar with Bengalis since forever, but for those who do not know, these are the names of the three stations that the famous toy train will cross on its journey to reach the Queen of Hills --- Darjeeling in West Bengal. What if, this time, your vacation could be at Sonada? Keep reading, as Izifiso has planned it all for you.

At Izifiso, we let your desires get wings, and your soul get adventure while ensuring that you do not have to compromise with comfort. That is why we look for campsites at offbeat spots less frequented by the average tourist but having the potential to provide great experiences to the passionate explorer of nature. Hence we chose Sonada, which, apart from being scenic and aesthetically pleasing with its pine forests and tea gardens, is actually a point of departure for treks to beautiful destinations like Chatakpur Eco Village, as well as Tiger Hill. And for your advantage, we recommend campsites that are not only comfortable but also provide great food with bonfire for an overall adventurous experience. So, hurry up and book your stay before others rush in and book all seats!
