The Sikkimese folklore is intriguing and rife with its mysterious legends. Passed down over generations and best narrated by the elderly, the stories grip the imagination of even the most skeptical minds. One such legend revolves around the Bon Manchi, literally translated to the man of the forest. While there are variations in the description, the common belief is that it is a hairy, stocky, bow-legged and shy, but terrifying when provoked.
This native Bon Manchi is very similar to the Goblins mentioned in European folklore. Keeping the spirit of this legend alive, we named our bar in Namchi - Goblin - to fuel more such conversations surrounding popular myths and glory.
