A unique Uttarakahand getaway for the city-weary . Cozy pinewood cottage in a tiny village between Badrinath-Kedarnath highways. Wide mountain views, fresh air and complete absence of tourist crowds.
Cattlebells and village conversations, birdsong, and cicadas' chatter set the day's rhythm. Surrounded by reserve forests and terraced farms. Pleasant hikes, birdwatching, star-gazing, our book collection and yum home-style meals.

The space
We are located above 6000 ft, near the top of a hillslope in the middle of village terrace farms. You climb down about 20 metres from the open roadside parking to arrive at the property. Three rooms, with space for one extra person in each room, if needed, on extra cost. A cabin-style cottage in a small mountain village, where life is quiet, restful, and soothing. Windows and all sit-out areas look up straight at snow views of Himalayan peaks like Trishul. Dunagiri, Valley of Flowers, Badrinath, Bedini Bugyal, and the outer rim of the Nanda Devi Sanctuary. There are part time caretakers (so no hotel-style service, just homely warmth and a taste of some local cuisine on order). please pack light in case you need to carry your own bags.
Surrounding forests are a mix of ancient oaks, rhododendrons, deodars, pine and various native Himalayan species. Wildlife sightings can include leopards, Himalayan dear, jungle cats, pine martens, monitor lizards and wide range of birds and butterflies.
We are between the two river valleys of Mandakini and Alaknanda, sister streams of the Ganga, and an excellent base for day trips or overnite excursions - Chopta-Tunganath - Deoarital trek in the Kedarnath Musk deer Sanctuary area, skiing at Auli. Badrinath, Kedarnath, Hemkund Sahib, and the mesmerizing hike to Kartikswamy.
Local town with bus station, taxi stand, basic health facilities, and market is 1.5 kms away.

Where you’ll be

Pokhari, Uttarakhand, India

We are located in a small, remote village that still lives off small scale organic farming and animal herding in great measure. And we are surrounded by old indigenous forests. The great Himalayan peaks face the cottage and the views are stunning at all times, changing with seasons and time of day. There is a huge variety of birds all around and some exciting sightings of wildlife too.
