Stays and Meals

Nestled amidst the quaint little village of Hamta, is our 50-year-old traditional Himachali mud house. We refurbished this old house to classic interiors while keeping the old world charm alive. While here, you can choose to go for any of the numerous day hikes, walk alongside the river bed or find your spot by a waterfall.


Come back home to sumptuous Himachal meals prepared by our in-house chef, while you enjoy the most epic views overlooking the Manali Valley from a height of 2650 meters.

Besides the house, our main and most exciting stay option is the Geodesic Domes.

 
 The Space 

Our mud house is located within an apple orchard and offers dramatic views of the valley, snow-capped mountains, and the ever drifting clouds. You can experience magical sunrise, sunsets, and starry nights from the comfort of the porch just outside your room or from the cozy common living area.

The house welcomes you into an old world charm of mud and wooden architecture, a traditional Himachali style of living in the olden days. Our private rooms are perfect to give you an experience of a personal space while the dorm beds are perfect solo travellers or friends travelling together.  The large wooden deck outside is the place to hang out and chill for some cool mountain vibes. The common room is definitely the most sought after space of the house where you can enjoy your books, meals, music or just be yourself. There are plenty of board games and books stacked in there to sweep you through the day.

A small wooden staircase connects the rooms to the washrooms on the ground floor.We also have a hammock placed in the middle of the orchard. You can use our yoga mats to do yoga or just soak in some good mountain sun.

Our three super friendly local shepherd dogs are always there to charm you away.

Private Mud Rooms
 
 
Experience stay in traditional Himachali rooms with 2 feet thick mud walls, a way of experiencing life in Himachal in the old days. Since we have kept the old world charm intact for an authentic stay, the only window for natural light is on the entrance door while the rest of the room remains insulated within the mud walls. 
 
Washrooms for both the rooms are located in the common toilet block on the ground floor. 
 

Dormitory

One of the most epic dorm room with an amazing view of the apple orchard, lush forest cover, towering mountains, and the endless valley. The 2 double bunker dorm beds can accommodate 4 people, each having their personal locker, universal charging point, and a reading lamp. We also have one single dorm bed right next to the window. 
 
P.S: The prices of the rooms may vary for special dates and we would love to give discounted prices for longer stays and bigger groups. Please feel free to call us in-case you have any special requests.
