The Handmade Experience


[mphb_availability_search class=”is-style-horizontal-form” “mphbs-hide-rf-tip” “mphbs-hide-labels”]



We mainly work in the Eastern Himalayas region comprising the tracts of the Darjeeling Hills of North Bengal, Sikkim, Arunachal Pradesh, and Bhutan. The region comprises of arctic, sub-arctic, temperate, subtropical, and warm tropical areas. The forests are mostly moist, dense and evergreen. This region is home to a large variety of mammals and birds including slow loris, rhinoceros, the golden languar, elephants, Indian civet, clouded leopard etc.​



Our tours are hosted by ace photographers along with location specific expert birding guides.

Dooars Gourmara Forest


Come, explore the rich wildlife diversity of the region from Rhinos, Elephants, Tigers and much more.


You dream it, we got it! From sightseeing, to engulfing the beauty and the magic of the mountains and the tea gardens.​


Camping in the snow, paragliding in Kalimpong and white water rafting in the Teesta are the main regional attractions.​



The trip just before the lockdown in March 2020 hosted by Aniruddha was like my dream come true.
Really enjoyed the communication, planning, choice of location, local guides, flexibility to adjust the plan based on the weather conditions and information available. Loved your team’s support to take care of my specific diet restrictions. It was a great balance of all elements which makes a bird photography tour not only productive yet fun too. Looking forward to a couple of more trips with you in the next season.
I wish Himalayan Odyssey many more successes to become a paradise of bird photography tour experience.

It was a wonderful experience. The food was delicious and flavorful. The most important and exciting thing for me is the Habitat and biodiversity around this homestay… You can just sit over on the balcony with your warm and refreshing cup of tea and enjoy seeing lots of birds of the Himalayan range chripping and foraging around you with the backdrop of The Mighty Kanchenjungha. A must visit place for everyone for relaxing holidays and eye-soothing landscapes

An amazing place to spend time with your loved ones, away from any kind of commercialization and urban life…A beautiful dreamy window view of the hills with clouds just walking leisurely in front of you. Food was just amazing and the best part is you can customize according to your taste buds. The staffs are so friendly that you would feel them as family.

Himalayan Odyssey is a beautiful home stay located on the hills. The rooms are neat and clean. Food is simple but delicious. I stayed there for 3 days and Aniruddha Sur is a great host. Lots of birds around if you are interested in bird photography and I must appreciate the interest and the knowledge that Aniruddha has in birding. The days when the skies are clear, one would be able to visit the majestic view of Kanchenjunga mountains from the home stay. I would give 5 stars for this place. Enjoyed my stay here.
