    Based in a forest covered remote rural village in North India, we are a group of family and friends who offers stay experience filled with nature, greenery, birds, art and local food. We have been operating for over 25 years now and are well-recognised for our Eco projects with local communities and travellers. People having a deep interest in nature, painting, dogs, art, farming, social media, creating content, photography, handling waste management and who can help us out in recycling old and unused products are highly preferred. Even if you don't fall under these categories, let us know how you can be helpful and we will be happy to host you!
