To bring overall development of hill villages through rural-based community service with inputs of yoga awareness camps is out utmost objective. We are working on harnessing the power of rural-based tourism as an opportunity for generating additional income for rural community.
The Himalayas and its holy shrines and rivers have long been attracted hermits, spiritual-seekers, religious tourists, and its rural life is open book of love and empathy. People here are looking forward with expectation that the rural-based community service will be tuned to their aspiration. Experience what Himalayan's rural life is by staying in their homes as guests.
In a home-stay concept, the locals are providing accommodation and meal facility at affordable prices. The foreign travelers enjoy local nutritious delicacies as just part of the local hospitality where guest is treated is just equal to God.
