Varun Negi along with his family will host you. Varun was born and raised in Delhi and has experienced everything that a city offers. He pursued all his hobbies from theater and guitar to hosting events and shows and learnt a foreign language and later started a restaurant business in Delhi. He always wanted to come back to his native village and uplift tourism in his location. Being an offbeat location he started with his house, renovated it and started hosting guests.
He is very happy being here with less resources away from a city’s busy life. Now he does treks, hikes, and camping whenever he gets time. People always want to be in the mountains and he feels lucky that he could take himself back to the roots. What he loves about his village is getting togethers with all age groups that he always missed in a city and wants his guests to experience what he feels being here.
