Extinction Rebellion Series - Part 5
And when you do all that you can do within your circle of influence to rebel against the mass extinction, pause for a bit.
Take a moment to appreciate the fact that you are in this position of making a difference for the next generation.
Take a moment to also appreciate the fact that not everyone may have that choice. Don't judge. Don't point out. Don't humiliate.
Take a moment to look up from all the unnecessary waste and litter that you have been trying to remove from around you....within you.
Take a moment to look up to the trees, the free birds, the floating wisps of clouds and the sun that is still primal energy source for all.
And if you are in Darjeeling, take a moment to look up to our glorious white mystic mountain, Kanchenjunga and tell yourself, life is beautiful...still.
Take It Easy...Easy Does It.

Extinction Rebellion Series - Part 4
'Build Like You Give a Damn!'
With Air Dwelling, we have taken our first flight off the ground on natural buildings. Conceptualised as a dwelling that is floating in space, it is projected out amongst the trees and amidst the whimsical clouds and the fleeting birds.
The love of travellers who loved our #TieediEarthyDwelling and took us to No. 1 Speciality Lodge ranking in Darjeeling and No. 7 hill station lodge in India* egged us to push the boundaries further (and this time to go higher!)
Just like our first natural building, Air Dwelling has also been hand crafted by our local artisans, working in tandem with architects, engineers and volunteers from different corners of the world.
It’s passive solar design ensures that the rooms are heated naturally during the day through solar energy which gets stored in the natural mass of straw bale, bamboo and mud walls. This heat radiates into the room at night once the temperatures cool dow.
Air Dwelling has two huts with each having its own distinct character.
Choose Air Dwelling 1, if you would like to travel down a nostalgic memory lane and reminisce the times spent on your grandparent’s secret attic. This hut has a mezzanine floor with stairs that invite children to climb up and cook up a new adventure in the forest or for loving couples to just lay back, stare at the floating clouds and the glittering stars.

Choose Air Dwelling 2, if you would like to wake up to the gurgling sound of the mountain stream that’s pierced by the mating calls of the forest magpies. It has a cosy lil private balcony that reaches out to grab the fruits from the branches of a wild olive tree that is home to hundreds of cicadas that happily croon for you on most autumn evenings.
