Staying in such remote conditions means a limited menu. In this case, there isn’t any. You get eggs and roti for breakfast along with hot piping tea. Lunch and dinner if you opt to have are vegetables with roti or rice. They cook mutton occasionally or if you request in advance. A simple meal, sitting around with the family and sharing life stories – nothing gets better than this.
Though it’s a basic place to stay at, it reeks of warmth and happiness, even in extreme conditions. The price of around Rs 1200 for two is for that. If you’re going solo, it’ll cost you around Rs 800 per night. Meals are prices and minimal rates.
Best time to go
Summers bring in the red, juicy apples and fairy tales walks in the orchard. But winters give you a chance to experience snowfall that is just magical. The whole region transforms into this set straight from a Christmas movie. So it’s going to be difficult to travel in January-February but hey, it’s going to be worth it!
