  • The moment you reach there, you will get to know why GandhiJi chose this place to make an Ashram here and praise about this place and even wrote a book here. Its a heavenly place. If you are visiting in off season you will witness its all round beauty l. The whole view of Himalayas is visible from this place. If you want to see all peaks with details then winter season is the best. There is a navigation stone which shows which peak is on which side. Calmness gives you power to think and go deeper inside you. You will find the calmness here. Spend some time here, sit in one of the corners and try to close your eyes and try to focus inside. You will really feel different. Happy travel πŸ‘‹πŸΌπŸ‘‹πŸΌ
  • Worst thing I have ever faced. DO NOT - I repeat do not stay here at all, unless you have some emergency and unable to find any room elsewhere. And if you stay here you will face worst manager in the world. Don't expect any kind of service here. Forget drinking You won't get hot/warm water for bathing even in winters. You can't even ask for a spare blanket if you feel cold. Attitude of manager is such that you'll regret staying here. You'll feel like they don't want you to stay there and come there again. Only good thing about here is it's location. You get nice sunrise and sunset views from here. However it's an open place and you can enjoy the view if you'd staying nearby also.
  • A now tourist place remains closed from 3 to 4 pm for unknown reasons. The managing guys were sitting, chatting and joking around in the office but the Ashram doors were closed and they did not reveal the reason for that. The property has rooms also for staying there. The authorities did not allow to just have a look at the rooms also. Again for reasons unknown. In today's world how can this unfriendly approach help the cause. And inside the ashram we came to know there were only a display of some photos of Gandhiji. Just go to enjoy the scenic view with himalaya peaks view.
  • Historic place where Mahatma Gandhi stayed for a few days Has a small photo gallery displaying the life of the Mahatma
  • Lakshmi Ashram was founded in the year 1964 by Catherine Hillman who was a disciple of Mahatma Gandhi. Here, the orphaned poor girls and women are taught the various skills like growing vegetables, cooking, caring for the animals and cleaning. Gandhiji's disciple, Sarla Behn (Kaitherine Heileman) established the ashram in 1946, and spent her life here doing social service and also established Anashakti Ashram. Lakshmi ashram is located in a solitary area among dense pine forest.
