the space

Located on the Badrinath highway, the property is a haven set along the Ganga river.

 

From here, go on low-impact, nautical adventures like white-water rafting and kayaking. The host is a pioneering kayak expert in India, and has helped empower and train several river guides locally.

 

A natural swimming pond on the property overlooking the river requires no chlorine or other chemicals for its maintenance. Instead, aquatic plants filter and oxygenate the pool! The property also has natural and constructed wetlands around. Fireflies, dragonflies, tiny fish, butterflies and birds, as well as aquatic plants enjoy the pure water created by the wetlands. The water seeps through the soil and trickles down to the river through porous rock and sand. By doing this, the hosts have been truly successful in promoting a natural water table and ecosystem on the property which the locals are educated about too.

comforts

There are eight double rooms in this peaceful property, all with attached bathrooms and solar-heated water. All the rooms overlook the river and are constructed of rock plastered with mud using local knowledge and expertise. The traditional construction methods ensure that the rooms stay cool in the summer and warm in the winter. The three rooms upstairs have wooden floors and private balconies to laze on. The five rooms downstairs have mud floors and some have a private garden too. Furniture is tasteful and made out of restored wood.

 

There is a large hall available for socialising and dining. There is a small library within to read about the landscape or pour over maps.

 

The property is functional all year, but one can expect dramatically different weather conditions during the year.
