Homestay Nathuakhan, Uttarakhand

Authentic Kumaoni Stay

Nidhi Sharma Sun, 07 Apr 2019

I have always been dreamy about a few places, Nathuakhan being one of them! Last time I came here, I heard about the big red flowers that Blossom in summers from local Kumaoni women selling squash made from these flowers. And this time, I was greeted by those Rhododendrons, Gorgeous Fiery Red Flowers through the snaky bends :) They did take my breath away!!

Also, I am a big fan of people here in the hills. I have personally had tea in some local homes on the way to treks and a conversation of 15 mins sprinkled with compassion and happiness, caused them to embrace me and not take any money for the refreshing cup of tea that they helped me with. So, looking for an authentic real homestay is a natural extension of that Love. That search brought me to this quaint homestay. Quite a story of why and how this got built! You must scroll down to hear it from Chetan, the man who gave up the shiny dream of big cities for the Soulful touch of the Majestic Mountains

One big highlight from my stay and conversation with Chetan was the fact that the main block with four rooms made with stones is Hand-made. Unlike Bricks which are symmetrical and can just be placed one on top of the other, this local stone construction took a year and half and the masons who were from the Village chose each stone and placed in a way almost like how we place together a puzzle board

When an Artist and a Photographer come together!

Shambhavi & Utpal are travellers who were Guests at the Homestay and were glad to share their thoughts and recommendations. Such an adorable couple. Also gave us some Couple goals :)

Best time now to escape Summers. Also, marvel at the Rhododendrons. A sight you don't want to miss

Expert review by Nidhi Sharma

Experience at the property
Plesant, Peaceful and very Memorable. Want to come back here during Snow time!
Highlight of the property
Cottages made with Mud and Stone, with a View of the Mountains, Oak & Deodar Forest. Many small meandering walks through Cherry, Plum & Peach Orchards. Yummy Food prepared by the Chef who is also from the Village.
Things that can be improved
Its a homestay, so all the little flaws if any add to the feeling of Home. Having said that, my stay was very comfortable.
Tip
There is an Untarred stretch of approx. 200 metres but is motorable. Chetan tells me that Travellers have got their beamers as well through this stretch with no issue. And I really think it adds to the appeal of the place. This Homestay is off the beaten path, then why would we want to take the beaten path.
Suitable for
Super Awesome for Solo Travellers, Couples seeking quality time, Travellers who truly want to reset or if you want to devote your time to a skill/practice that matters to you like reading, art, photography, meditation
