Answers to common questions
We’ve compiled a list of answers to common questions.
- We have special dietary requirements. Can food be catered for us at the Birdsong Home?
If you have special dietary requirements, do get in touch with us well in advance! We will cater to your requirements whatever they are.
- What are the safety features at the Birdsong Home?
We have a first-aid kit and fire extinguishers at each apartment. The access points to the Birdsong Home are covered by 24/7 CCTV cameras. Our night caretaker is available from 9pm to 8am every day.
- I am traveling with elderly people. How accessible is the Birdsong Home?
The house has 40 mountain steps that lead up to it, and a longer concrete path that is easy on the knees for elderly people. Being in a remote location, major health services (like the hospital) are a 30 min drive away. We will assist in bringing elderly people to the house so they don’t have any trouble.
- How do I reach Mirik by car? Does Birdsong Home have parking?
You can take a shared taxi / bus from Siliguri Junction. A seat in the jeep is Rs. 100 and will drop you to the Boudi hotel. From here, take a taxi to Pehlagaon or walk downhill for 2km till you reach the house! If driving, we will arrange parking for you next to the house. Taxis are available for Rs. 2500 from NJP and Rs. 2000 from Bagdogra for a new AC 4-wheel drive.
