Mountains-based hostel/home known as "House of Stories" 

Day 1

Shangarh some call it, mini Switzerland of India, between the mountains “House of Stories” is a hostel which was started by Vrinda Bhayana in October 2021.

So on my recent trip with my friends to  Shangarh in Himachal Pradesh, we booked the hostel i.e House of stories, we referred at pictures and, the environment of the property. We didn’t take a sec to book the rooms for us.

While arriving at the house of Stories and seeing the property, we were happy that it was our best decision to book rooms at the house of Stories because of the beautiful views we were getting. We saw clouds touching mountains, a mini waterfall to accompany us and a sky full of stars at nighttime to enjoyed stargazing all night with a cool breeze and a bonfire.
