Apart from managing this homestay, the family has a small farm, an orchard and livestock. The homestay is constructed by the brothers themselves from scratch. They just had the land near their home and farms where they decided to construct a dream home. They levelled and prepared the land and did all the designing and construction themselves. It took them 5 years to get it into the shape that it is in today. Now they have opened up the home to the travelers. Stay with this humble family and experience kumaoni hospitality at its best.
