Lodging & boarding:
Simplicity is what you would see and get in all the activities of your day-to- day living as you stay with us. We have kept in mind the hygiene needs while planning for our guests’ requirements. As a guest you would be provided with:
- A room with traditional settings on single or sharing basis depending on the availability and the need.
- Hygienically cooked vegetarian Kumauni food. Kumauni food is similar to food served elsewhere in northern India. For, non-vegetarian food one has to request in advance.
- A clean traditional dry-composting or wet-compositing toilet.
We shall serve you our home cooked vegetarian food and it will be mostly from the ingredients grown locally .There is a tradition of two main meals in hill region of Uttrakhand. One full meal late morning around 9-10 am as the day goes in doing daily chores in the field or their respective work routines this is followed by light evening tea around 4.00 & 5.00 pm with some snacks and an early dinner between 7.00 & 8.00 pm as the village goes to sleep early. But now-a-days, eating habits are changing as per modern living so do get a three daily meal system in villages also.
In other words you will share all the same amenities as the family enjoy. Your only other expenses will be for personal shopping when you go to the local market or on excursions with the family or on your own.
