Siddharth Tiwari along with his father Bhuvan Tiwari will welcome you here. Spending time with his grandmother and the local kids in Kainchi is amongst some of his fondest childhood memories. After much introspection, he decided to return to his village with the desire to create a home away from home. Brainstorming with his father helped him in shaping this homestay. He usually goes for long walks in the nearby forest and thoroughly enjoys camping and birding. He happily can guide you on forest walks and local treks. Cooking outdoors and capturing moments in pictures is something that brings him joy. Through this stay, he wishes for people to have a great time and cherish moments thereafter. If you are a keen trekker, Siddharth can plan and lead multi-day treks for you.
