Homestay, lap of nature, Himalayan panoramic view, stories from the house owner Baadaji
The house belongs to a charming old man of 81 years who had been an avon cook to Class 1 officers of Government of India and takes equal pleasure in cooking for his visitors.
He is lovingly called ‘Baadaji’ ( meaning Big Uncle in Garhwali) though his name is Mr.Devi Dutt. He fails all prejudices against old men, is full of character and shall leave you awestruck! The house has 2 big bedrooms to sleep 8 adults comfortably. Chanch was a cow shed which has been turned into a beautiful Lounge come Dine-In, can accommodate 8 adults for a feast. Made of mud, stone and wood assembled from the local forest, it is a living piece of contemporary architecture.
