This is where the love for the mountains was first seeded for both of us. This where our wandering souls found solace and forged a deep connection with the glorious white mystic mountain, Kanchenjunga.
We have promised to go back every year coz this is our pilgrimage...a pilgrimage to Sandakpu.
Starting this year, one of us will be introducing Sandakpu to a select group of friends and guests. We have just three slots left for the trek this year. DM us for more info. Trek starts the second week of April.
Come trek the zero waste Tieedi way. :)

The Sunday Haat @ Siliguri!
Yesterday marked the 7th week of the Sunday Haat in Siliguri, an attempt by a few like minded folks to start a slow food movement and to also provide the artists, craftsmen and musicians of North Bengal a platform to showcase their wares.
Tieedi, is excited to be part of this initiative. Our first step towards creating a cooperative and connecting the organic farmers from the hills of Darjeeling to conscious buyers of the nearest city (Siliguri). What also excites us is the opportunity to get creative in up-cycling of the 'so called waste' that we have collected in our cleanup initiatives and to create functional products for conscious buyers in the Haat.
If you are in and around North Bengal don't miss this the Sunday Haat @ 27, Church Road, Siliguri. From fresh organic produce to upcycled products to bamboo crafts to essential oils to homemade soaps and marmalades, you will find it all here!
What's even awesome is you get to bump into so many interesting folks doing such creative and inspiring work in their respective fields. Great conversations guaranteed! Oh! Yes! Pls make sure that you are carrying your own shopping bag to the Haat! :)

This wonderful, award winning short film reminds us of an equally dear poem.
‘Nature will not be conquered, except by Obeying’
(”Natura enim non nisi parendo vinvitur“)
At first men try with magic charm
To fertilize the earth,
To keep their flocks and herds from harm,
And bring new young to birth.
Then to capricious gods they turn
To save from fire or floods;
Their smoking sacrifices burn
On altars red with blood.
Next bold philosopher and sage
A settled plan decree,
And prove by thought or sacred page
What nature ought to be.
But Nature smiles – A Sphinx-like smile-
Watching their little day
She waits in patience for a while
Their plans to dissolve away.
Then come those humbler men of heart
With no completed scheme,
Content to play a modest part,
To test, observe and dream.
Till out of chaos come in sight
Clear fragments of a whole-
Man, learing Nature’s way aright,
Obeying, can control.
The great design now glows afar;
But yet its changing scenes
Reveal not what the pieces are
Nor what the puzzle means.
And nature smiles – still unconfessed
The secret thought she thinks –
Inscrutable she guards unguessed
The riddle of the Sphinx.
