This relatively easier half-day hike from the house will first lead you to a valley that has a dead drop of approximately 2000ft at an angle of 70 degrees. Then you will go downhill to the idyllic Kanarkha Village that is populated by a predominantly agrarian community that earns its livelihood by trading in local produce.
Things To Do:
Jilling Terraces also curate intimate workshops or what they refer to as Cloudshops that you could participate in. The Cloudshops aim to host and collaborate with groups or individuals willing to teach or organise activities related to crafts, art and yoga etc.
The suites and the cottage are stocked with games like monopoly, scrabble etc. And you can also have bonfire nights by the traditional fireplaces that are built in the living rooms as well as the verandahs.
