Overview

About the space and location:
Check-in Time: 12:00 PM

The tea estate all around the homestay lends it an aroma that's unique and refreshing. With lush green surroundings, mountain views, and rustic stay experience, this stay - that is made of eco-friendly materials like wood, slate, and mud - gives a feel of the ‘gaddi’ tribe homes, making it all the more special. Moreover, all the river stones and slates are hand chiselled and crafted in the local Kangra method - and this continues in all the bedrooms here that are not only rustic but also luxurious.

Do not miss out going on a guided tea tour while here that begins with an overview of the tea manufacturing process and various tasting methods, and leads to an evening picnic at a picturesque spot on the estate with tea bushes all around. You would not want to miss out on this experience. Once back at the stay, enjoy stargazing around a warm bonfire with barbeque (on request, at an additional cost).
