I had the chance of visiting a farmhouse in the Haa district also known as Hidden-Land Rice Valley in the west of the country on the Tibetan border.
There is a large Indian military presence here because of the incursions by the Chinese. The farmhouse is also a homestay guest house.
I found many similarities with the houses in Ladakh India, but there were some surprises. I found a western bathroom and Tibetan-style bedrooms which looked comfortable with colourful mattresses and cushions laid out on the floor.
The lunch was delicious and I ate so much that I had to be helped down the ladder style staircase.
