This room is named after a hill commonly called Sokpay which literally means a hill where Yeti’s dwell. The early dwellers of this community lived in caves and these caves exist till date. Sokpa in local language is called Yeti. This hill is around 8500 ft above MSL located towards the north-eastern side of the hotel. The Sokpey hill is the boundary for the North, East and South districts of the state.
En route to Sokpey Dara there are numerous water-falls, historical places like Niya, Baram villages and lots of cardamom fields if travelling through motorable road. If one follows a trek route one can enjoy Dareli Peak, Ganesh Dham etc, but should be careful of leeches and various other high altitude insects.
