Nanda Devi (7848 m), Mt. Nanda Kot (6861m) and Mt. Trishul (7120 m). The stunning views can get tiring for the eyes as you stare helplessly – from dawn to dusk, from twilight to starlight. The village is castaway from the mainland world is a pahadi island where you get to eat what is organically grown, meet the gentle, simple and content mountain people, birds and geckos, take hikes to mountain tops and meadows, or laze around in the high grass with no worries of the outside world. Here you are in the heart of the central Himalayan wilderness.
There are six stone cottages with ground bedding and cots, mats and sleeping bags or quilts ensure a comfortable stay in the wilderness. Hygienic toilet tents with w/c and running water flushes are also provided.
