The Homestay itself is beautifuly designed

On very short notice they agreed to host us and prepared delicious and homely food for us. The Homestay itself is beautifuly designed. Rooms are spacious, clean with AC and non AC. Easy to spot, located just 8km from Parsuram kund, making it easy to explore the area.

Glimpse of a different culture

Homestays are a very good way of getting a glimpse of a different culture. They made sure that we get the experience of their food,culture, traditions without lagging behind the comfort of a good place to stay with all the amenities. Would love to visit again just to be with the lovely family and the traditional house and the lip smacking authentic food.
