We stayed at this place as part of husband's official team building (family included) in Nov 08. Place was awesome, just on the banks of river Alaknanda at Jayalgarh... Did water rafting... Also the night bon fire and music and dance was awesome.... All in all, a nice place to visit...but don't expect too much luxury!
