Located in a little village in Aglar Valley, 40 km from Mussoorie and 44 kms from Dhanaulti, this is one of the most scenic hidden gems of Uttarakhand. It is surrounded by middle Himalayas and is dotted with deodar, oak and rhododendron forest. Home to rare species of butterflies, the place is a paradise for nature lovers and bird watchers. ‘Titli Utsav’ is held here in first week of June, wherein researchers from different corners of the world and nation visits the forest to observe the countless varieties of butterflies and moths. The village is also a base for Nag Tibba Trek.

There is one private room (2 people) and two big rooms for shared accommodation (4 people in each). Additionally, the outdoor tents setup can accommodate 8 people.
