Himalayan Homestead is an eco-friendly boutique homestay offering rustic, comfortable, and cozy cottages in sylvan surroundings. The crisp mountain air, the tranquility of the forests, the unending greenery all around, and the bird songs are bound to overwhelm you and instill a sense of calm and joy and connect you with your inner self.
Natural farming, sustainable and minimalistic living and being one with nature epitomizes life in the Homestead. The Homestead grows its own vegetables and fruits. The bakes are all in-house. What doesn't grow here is sourced from the adjoining villages. Built with pure love, heart and soul, every part of the homestead holds a story to tell.
The homestead has four tastefully designed cottages. The cottages have been designed to enjoy the ambience of the existing orchard and the bordering forest. All the cottages have earthy elements, and on a clear day, majestic view of the snowcapped Trishul, Mrigthuni, Maiktoli Nandadevi and Nandakot peaks is a sight to behold.
Nirvana - a state of perfect happiness, harmony and freedom is the essence of the cottage. Nirvana is an independent cottage ideal for a couple. Broad windows in the room and a covered wooden deck offers the view of the Himalayas and the upcoming orchard in the homestead. The wooden balcony can also double up as a yoga deck.
Divinity is a family suite with four beds. Rest, learn, play, detox, meditate, commune with mother nature in a spacious ambience. The room is big enough to accommodate a big family. Locally sourced material, wooden floors and mud-plastered walls give you all the warmth to bond with your friends and family.
Bliss gives a feel of being in a treehouse. A covered wooden deck makes you one with the outside. A private, stylish, cottage with large glass windows all around, overlooking the orchard and valley with the Himalayas in the backdrop is an experience. Bliss has three beds, suited for a small family.
Serenity is a cottage tucked away on one side of the main building. It is a haven for those who wish to enjoy their sojourn undisturbed and relaxed. Serenity has three spacious beds, ideal for a small family. Wooden floors and mud-plastered walls add charm to the place and will give you a feel of living in a village house with all amenities at your beck and call.
