  • Description


    Namaste workawayers

    My name is sandeep rawat. I am 23 years old single and I'm from Raini (joshimath), a small but a beautiful village situated in Devbhumi Uttarakhand. I am very open minded, fun loving and friendly person in nature
    Most of us crave for natural beauty, pure air, adventure and traditional love, but it's hard to find all under one roof.
    Here is a chance for you to explore and enjoy to the fullest and get all the above at one place.
    My House in Raini, Joshimath lets you be a part of the Pahadi culture and traditions that pervade the hills of Uttarakhand. This pet- friendly accommodation is inspired by real village houses which offer guests a firsthand experience about living in the hills like the natives do. There is a common lounge area where guests can hang out together and share their travel experiences and get to know new people. At Rongpa House, you can pluck organic vegetables for meals, eat fruits directly from the trees(during season) or visit the nearby village.
    Tourists visiting here have multiple choices to engage themselves in various activities, like, they can visit pilgrimages, can do skiing, trekking, etc. Since this place is very far from the city chaos, it's a great place to find peace for both soul & mind and is a good place to try meditation.
    It is a perfect detoxification from the worldly pleasures and man made environments. You can connect with nature and learn more about Indian societies and their way of living along with some adventures.
