Raola Khera - An ethnic village
A unique property basking in a village of Hadoti region named Chotra Ka Khera. It is one of the biggest RAJPUTS (warriors) village of this region. This place offers you Earth experience in its rural ambiance. Mahatma Gandhi once said that if you want to discover real India then you will find in its villages as 80% of population still lives in villages.
Raola Khera is an initiative took by a Rajput Landlord family of village to help tourist to get in touch with nature and local culture tradition. It is a cluster of mud houses with decorative Mandana (floral patterns) and thatched roofs with required amenities like electricity runs on solar energy, room en suite bathroom, hygienic and traditional food cook on wood fire, serves in traditional style “Thali”. You can enjoy your morning with tweeting of birds, peacock dancing and rich avian culture with migratory birds during season.
This property is 100% based out of natural resources locally. Cluster of mud houses are made of mud walls, mud floor with Leepai (cow dung mix with soil water applied on wall and floor). In recent researches have proved that cow dung acts as anti-bacterial, anti-fungal and natural mosquito repellent. Cow dung paste coated wall and floor remain cool in summer and warm in winter so acts as natural temperature regulator. Accommodation is en-suite room which are cozy and comfortable, doors open into their own little Patio. The thatched roofs draw inspiration from local village houses. Its atmosphere to dine out in an open Patio and feast on mouth watering cusine that offers local flavours.
We say “NO” to Air conditioning : It is a fact that without breath we can’t sustain 3 minutes. According to WHO in 2017, seven million deaths due to Air pollution. One of the main problem in air is Low Oxygen. This is the biggest problem in cities. Every person need 550 litres oxygen daily and that much Oxygen we get from 11,000 litres of air. Air should have minimum 19.5% of Oxygen if the level is low then we can’t feel energetic, we feel tired exhausted and suffocated. If Oxygen goes down by 10% our brain stop working. Air conditioners results very Low OXYGEN in room and didn’t get fresh air. So let the Nature bless us with fresh Air, let the windows opens and feel blessed.
