  • Description


    Our location is in a secluded village within the Chamba district of Himachal Pradesh. It takes approximately six hours by road to reach us from Dharamshala. The village is also roughly a five-hour drive from Kangra's Gaggal airport and the Pathankot Railway station. Chamba serves as the closest town. Two long-route buses operate up to our village. Our family consists of three members, including my parents. This serves as our summer residence, which we run as a homestay/BnB to promote tourism in our ancestral village. Additionally, we are experimenting with new agricultural and horticultural practices. There are a few other projects in the pipeline that may come to fruition this year, keeping us occupied.

    Our village, Kunra, is home to the Gaddi tribe and nomadic Gujars. It stands as one of the oldest villages in both the Chamba district and the Indian subcontinent. The Shivashakti temple here, dating back to the 7th century AD, has been recognized as a protected monument by the National Archaeological Survey of India. Students from various disciplines, including Archaeology, Anthropology, and Geology, frequently visit this area for research purposes.

    According to local belief, the Pandavas from the famous epic Mahabharata resided in this village during their exile, giving it the name Kuntapuri, derived from their mother Kunti. For an unparalleled cultural exchange and an experience steeped in ancient heritage, this location offers a unique atmosphere distinct from the contemporary culture of the plains.
