The house comprises of ground and first floor having two bedrooms with attached bathrooms, cupboards etc. The ground floor has been matted with beautiful wooden planks to minimize the climatic effect and the first floor base has similarly been sealed with local earth. The construction has been done using mostly local material including locally available cut stones so as to control the heat-cold effect of changing climate during summers and winters.
The retreat being the central point surrounded by thick jungle on all sides provides an unparalleled view of jungle life in contrast to the present day mundane city life imprinting a lasting invigorating effect on the mind and soul.
The morning loud melody of red jungle fowl of ku-kru-koon resounds through the entire jungle along with the melodies of myriad other bird species abounding in the region. They include among others, peacock-peahen, partridges, and sparrows of many shades and colours. Among the wild animals, barking deer, stag (sambar) and wild boar etc. dot the area sounding their own barks and roars. The lucky visitor can even sight some of them. All this sight and song can be a life time unforgettable experience for the metropolitan city dwellers for he would never ever chance upon such adventure anywhere except the dud experience of visiting the city zoo.
Guests can have access to the two traditional kitchens on the ground floors. They can also freely move about the vast open surroundings.
I will mostly be available to make sure to provide personal touch for the guest's comfortable stay. In case of my unavailability, someone from my family in addition to the staff will be attending to the guests.
While every care is taken to provide palatable Vegetarian and Non-vegitarian cuisine to which people are generally accustomed to in normal urban lifestyle; our special dishes include world famous 'Kangri dham' prepared using firewood as medium for cooking and traditional himachali utensils including earthen pots. Organic, locally grown Himalayan herbs are made use of as ingredients to enrich the food value. 'Kangri dham' can also be served on traditional 'pattals' (Broad vine leaves) made out of fresh broad leaves of a special vine stitched as round plates. Traditionally prepared 'Makki ki roti' is served with organically grown leafy vegetables and 'Khohru' made of butter milk.
Meals other than breakfast will be available at moderate rates.

I belong to that rare rustic group which, irrespective of race, colour or creed form a strange fraternity who at the least opportunity are off to the mountains, distant islands or vast and lonely jungles.
Cooking and serving choicest cuisines whether in the house or in my jungle abode is my favourite choice. This alone is my introduction coupled with an open arm invitation to all those in search of peace, solitude and adventure.
