Multiday trekking expeditions.

Day hikes

Accommodations

If you are the kind of traveler who feels more comfortable in smaller, more intimate accommodations rather than big, luxury hotels, you have come to the right place. We offer various types of options for hotels, homestays, guest houses and camping in numerous places across Himcahal Pradesh. These can be used for short night over as you travel from one place to another or for a longer duration for your more leisurely vacation. We offer accommodations in varied places like orchards, suburbs, small remote villages and even in stark wilderness.

Homestay : Instead of a generic hotel, spend some time with a local family in their home as their guest. Experience the genuine hospitality which the Himachali people are famous for, observe their daily way of life from up close, enjoy some awesome authentic local food and add new family members to your life.

Camps : Available on request in many places in wilderness, spend the night under stars in some of the most beautiful and amazing places on earth. Included by default in many trekking tours.

Guest House: Small individual or family run accommodations which offer you privacy and facilities like those of a high quality hotel, but with a more personal touch. Ideal for families, group of friends on a relaxing vacation.

Hotels : Small, no-frills, yet clean and comfortable hotels. Ideal for short stays or multiple days as per your requirement.

Social Work

Ideal travel is beneficial for the eco-systems and socio-economic structure of the destination. We strive to minimise the negative impact that irresponsible tourism entails and promote practices which are beneficial for the planet. It is easier said than done, but we do our best. Additionally, we try to support the local village economies by hiring locals, sourcing supplies locally and participating in various social work projects. Some of our projects are:

Promotion of eco-friendly responsible tourism.

Use of renewable sources of energy like solar, wind, bio-mass.

Rain water harvesting.

Sourcing of supplies, food from local villages.

Support for local artisans, farmers, guides, porters.

Helping local children with their education.

  • We were picked up from Manali and taken via Rohtang Pass and Kunzum La pass to Chandra taal lake. We spent a day there hiking but couldn't do it much because we were not really used to walking that much. Our accommodation was in quite spacious tents with comfortable bedding. Even then it was a nice trip and we enjoyed it very much. Food was OK and fairly good considering how remote the place is. The roads are in very bad condition and the travelers need to prepare themselves accordingly. People who are not used to travel in mountains should be careful, but modern medicine works quite well.
  • Excellent trip
  • Great trip in Himalayas
