About the host
Sudhir Nehru worked as a banker before he decided to take a long sabbatical and travel the world with his wife. They stayed in B&Bs and homestays, and fell in love with these homes away from home. Later, they came to Tirthan Valley and it just clicked! They set up Kudrat – A Boutique Homestay here and also decided to make it their own home. It's been 4 years since and they couldn’t be happier with their decision.
