  • Description

    Description

    Our organization is a socially responsible hospitality group offering luxury accommodations while also delivering value back to the local community. The owners of this hostel are former executives of fortune 500 companies and we aim to serve as an incubator, for both the community and our guests' projects. Our property has clean infrastructure, like solar power and a backup battery system and a 200L Water filtration unit, to eliminate plastic consumption. We're also in the process of starting local waste management and agricultural businesses on site! Come volunteer and learn from the pros on how to start a business and positively impact communities!

    Our first property is located in Naggar India, about 22 KM from Manali in the Himachal Pradesh region.
