  • Description

    Description

    We are set-up 26 kms from the district headquarters of Almora in Uttarakhand, India. We rear cows, chickens, dogs, vegetables and also engaged in meditation and yoga. Organic vegetables, small plots for various crops. Oak plantation, vermi-compost, and newer methods of gardening and farming are our some of our major activities.

    We are associated to Nature in every aspect of living or at least we try to do so. Himalayan ranges within view and far from city, we are living young, free, wild, and natural. At one of our parent-location (50 Km from Corbett National Park), we have a similar set-up plus off-school learning center for local kids. At this location, we have eco-houses, cob-houses, stone-houses for animals as well as for us.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    From Almora to Kosi- one can hire a shared-taxi (throughout the day). From Kosi to Roun, one can take a taxi (shared) to Chaan and then call the people at farm to pick up. Alternative way is walking from Almora (around 5 kms). The farm is a completely family-run farm; everything is done on cooperative basis.

    There is a short trail to the nearest hill top (Shahi Devi). One can trek up to this point for about 3 hours to get a breathtaking view of the Himalayas. We also take short-trips to the places from where we can see Himalayas very closely, can pitch a tent or two. But strictly on money-pool basis. Tungnath (highest Lord Shiva temple in the world), Bhatkot (highest peak after 10 km trek), Pandavkholi (a meadow) and many such places are regular spots. We love music a lot- our cows listen to it too.

    We are okay for non-vegetarians (except Tuesdays), smoking and drinking is okay, but not inside any of the places where human or animals live. We try to stick to a daily routine from 5am to 8pm.
