Large Cedar forest right in front of Cottages. Own farm. We have most of the veggies from our farm only. Cottages, dining hall, and kitchen are all made up of eco friendly raw material available locally, made by unskilled laborers and myself. Cottage, dining hall, and kitchen walls are made up of mud, so they maintain the temperature. When it is cold outside, they keep cottages warm and vice versa unlike walls made up of cement. Beautiful village nearby. The villagers are very warm and welcoming. The expansive view of Greater Himalayan Peaks like Chaukhamba, Swargarohini, Gangotri Group, Kedarnath and many others. No noise at all. Away from main road. Only sounds you can hear are of Birds and Bees. Magnificent view of sky in night. Sunset and sunrise view right from outside cottages only.
Guests will have access to cottages with attached bathroom, dining hall, one common toilet, kitchen, farm, and orchard.
I am available whenever there is guest so that they can be served best and guide them through their stay.
Travelers need to keep one warm upper and one pair of good sports shoes/jungle boot etc. It gets really cold in evening and good shoes will help them walk through the Jungle.

The huge mountains, huge Cedar trees, and small cottages on big grasslands always attracted me since childhood, when I see such things on TV in old Hindi movie songs and in my adolescence when I started traveling to different places. At such instances, the first and only thought came to my mind always was “I want to live here.” After years of struggle with many different thoughts/ideas, I concluded the natural course is the best course. Whenever we try to counter the natural process, we face problems and the consequent disappointments. The raw idea was making a living place for myself, which should be in complete harmony with Nature and share it with rest of the world. Hence, ZeroStay Cottages Kanatal came up.
I am an explorer and I believe to explore travel is the best medium. Travel enhances perception and physical life is all about perception. I love to travel anywhere, though I am biased with Mountains. I love to trek. I can trek for endless number of days. I listen to almost any kind of music, but my favorites are old Hindi songs, few new Hindi songs, Ghazals, Qawaalis especially of Nusrat Sahab. I like traditional Indian food, homely prepared.
I just have one simple motto in life to spend most of my lifetime in harmony with Nature, in natural surroundings, away from hustle and bustle of city life, for which I have developed farm, eco-friendly cottages, Apple orchard, and making use of solar energy and rain water harvesting.
