With magnificent views of the Dhauladhar range, a perfect amalgamation of Pahari and Buddhist culture infused into an exquisite setting and just the perfect hint of city life is one of the most popular tourist destinations of the country – Dharamshala in Himachal. It is swathed with dense deodar, oak, pine and rhododendron forests and chilly winds rising from the streams, lakes, waterfalls, and soaring cliff tacks. Located at an elevation of 1457 m above sea level under the shadow of the Dhauladhar ranges, it serves as a starting point to countless treks across Ravi valley, Dhaualdhar and the Pir Panjal Ranges.
Just a few meters from Bhagsu Nag Temple in Mcleodganj, it is a simple double-storeyed building located at the foot hills of Dhauladhars where clouds end as heavy mists descend on the hillsides. While the homestay is well equipped with basic amenities and offers majestic views of the surrounding Himalayan range that nudges from every nook and corner of the home, it still radiates the vibes of a home in the mountains.
This modern house has six double bedrooms for guests along with a common living space. All rooms have attached bathroom. Five rooms are double occupancy with space for an extra person and one room has 2 double beds ideal for a family of 4-6 people.

Chhimbu Sagar played Cricket at the district level before starting his homestay. His motivation behind opening a homestay was to meet new people, take pride in sharing the Kangri culture and trek to the nearby attractions. He is one of those hosts who love their work and thoroughly engage with guests on bonfires, conversations, meals, and treks.

I had an amazing stay. Host was incredibly welcoming and made me feel right at home from the moment I arrived. The room was spacious, clean, and had all the amenities I needed. The bed was comfortable and I slept like a baby each of seven nights I stayed. One of the things I loved most about this homestay was the delicious home-cooked meals. The hostess prepared traditional local dishes that I got to eat together with the family. The homestay itself was located in a beautiful, peaceful, with stunning views. Overall, I highly recommend this homestay to anyone looking for a comfortable and authentic travel experience. The warm hospitality, delicious food, and beautiful surroundings made for an unforgettable trip.24/02/2023
