Blessed by the mighty Dhauladhar ranges, there is a quaint homestay hidden within Gopalpur village in Himachal. Its an ideal midway location to cover Bir-Billing on one side, and Dharamshala/Dalhousie on another. Moreover this being an Ayurvedic retreat, it focuses on detoxification, healthy living, happiness and inner well-being, which is a cherry on cake to experience, in addition to this exceptionally comfortable experiential stay.
HOW TO REACH
There are direct buses from Delhi ISBT Kashmere Gate going to Palampur. We took the 7:30 morning AC bus for 1000 bucks which dropped us at Malan junction after Nagrota Bagwan in 12 hours. From there its just 8km, so we took cab to reach homestay located near Gopalpur Zoo.
HOW THE STAY CAME TO BE CHOSEN
After being deprived of vacation last 10 months, I was searching for a holiday home which can be easily reached without having to undertake hectic journeys or encounter difficult roads. The idea and criteria was to reset the body and mind after an exhaustive work life-cycle for so long. I recalled a past conversation with my friend about wellness centers emerging as burgeoning choice to enjoy staycations, as well as experience an extensive health upkeep with a relaxing respite. So, the good faithful Google request bytes returned with a beautifully wrapped gift in form of this earthy utopian villa cum farmstay along with wellness center within its premises.
