  • Description

    Description

    We are a family run eco-travel and adventure company outfit, based in the beautiful village of Naggar in Kullu Valley. Apart from trekking and road trips we involve visitors in our day to day activities of cooking, farm work in our apple orchards and our organic farm to table garden. We also host a range of workshops and facilitate interactions with local artisans, vernacular architects and involve both visitors and local youth in tree planting initiatives on our forested slopes. Visitors can look forward to being a part of our family, interacting with locals and tourists from all over India and outside, taking part in numerous local festivities and being integrated into Himachali culture.
    Singles, couples and families welcome!

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Travellers will be immersed in local lifestyles, take part in festivals, weddings, day to day family life. They can also learn local crafts of weaving, knitting, spinning and crochet from local artisans (for a small fee), improve their trekking and outdoor skills, learn yoga and cooking of Indian food. Life in the mountains in India is completely different from life on the plains - it is much more mellow, full of clean air, active and culturally rich. This is a unique opportunity to experience this all as a local.

    We are looking for enthusiastic travellers who enjoy trekking, climbing, helping on the land, and giving a hand with seasonal activities going on at our place. Some of these would be beautifying the homestay by planting season flowers, helping with the vegetable Help with social media and website updating would also be most useful. Teaching Russian, Hebrew, French and English to our community of local trekking guides would be an added asset.
