Tucked in India’s Parvati valley, travelers will find the eco-friendly Himalayan Village, a perfect spot for adventure seekers and those who want to find the ultimate fairytale retreat. The valley offers treks, blooming flower valleys, thick flora and fauna, crystal clear waterfalls, and calming rivers set in the Deodar forest. Eight cottages make up the village, including two Machan-style rooms that offer sweeping views of the surrounding mountains.
Built in the ancient Kathkuni style (think: dry stacking stones and wood without cement), the inner walls are mud-plastered, while living spaces are furnished with uniquely carved teak furniture, handmade Tussar silk curtains, and traditional brass fittings. All cottages offer guests a king-size bed, four-seater sofa, mini bar, fully furnished and equipped toilets, and even a personal lawn.
Guests can participate in a wide range of activities, including rock climbing, river crossing, jungle excursions, mountain biking, trout angling, horse riding, and even a jungle barbecue. All that adventure leaving you hungry? The Himalayan Village has multiple restaurants for guests to enjoy authentic Himalayan cuisine. After feeding your stomach, feed your soul by joining staff members for the traditional folk dances of Himachal.
