If you are suffering from Urbanization syndrome, this is the place for you where there's no phone networks, no electricity, no roads, only You and Nature.

This authentic Village stay at NagTibba is a traditionally curated and crafted haven in the hills of Garhwal. At around 7700 ft, the cottages are cosy and beautifully done up by the local artisans. Only locally available material has been put to use keeping the spirit of Green People’s mission from diluting.

To ensure low carbon footprint, the cottages have been setup at a 1 km walk down the hill from the main road so that it’s free from noise and vehicular pollution. Travelers should be ready to explore this offbeat place via 30 minutes trek. We also have mules to carry you in case you can’t trek. This property is completely self-sustainable and runs on solar panels. Travelers will be provided with solar lamps during the night inside the cottage. It’s a lights out experience but you would love the night under the starlight only.

The site is the midpoint for a popular trek to Nagtibba. We serve local delicacies and rely on our Garhwali kitchen staff to bring together local flavours. All the produce used for cooking purposes is sourced locally.

Local Dost - Pradeep

We have a team of villagers trained in multiple dimensions of hospitality and management, agriculture and cattle rearing practices, and mountaineering from various reputed institutes. Our village managers are usually top end professionals volunteering their services as a Manager while on a self actualization or Tech-Detox sabbatical for 1 to 3 months, also doubling up as trainers for our staff and villagers around.

Factsheet

  1. How to Reach: Driving from Delhi NCR? Take ‘Delhi – Panipat – Karnal – Yamuna Nagar – Paonta Sahib – Vikas Nagar – Nain Bagh – Pantwari – Laser Gaon’ route. Roughly 7-8 hours (340 KMs).
    Driving from Dehradun? Take ‘Dehradun – Selaqui – Vikas Nagar – Yamuna Bridge – Nain Bagh – Pantwari – Laser Gaon’ route. Roughly 3-4 hours (110 KMs). No, we still don’t recommend driving through Mussoorie. Because, jam-packed roads, de-tours and loads of traffic!
