I had visited this remote place with a couple of mt friends. Had never heard about Chamba and never thought the place would be so calming and beautiful. We had visited in the month of June and our stay was for 3 days there. The family with whom we were staying were such simple and amazing people. They had so... More

Remote and so worth it: my husband and I stayed for 9 days in September/October 2014. We were charmed by the authenticity of the accommodation, with all the comfort we needed, and by the surroundings which breath new life into one by their magnificence and quality of the extraordinary. The mountains fed our souls, and Mrs Dhami fed our bodies... More

I was there on an Eldertreks trip in June 2014 for 4 nights. It's a rustic type of place--which I like a lot--and quite comfortable. There are shared balcony/porches with chairs and tables and the sleeping quarters were spacious and comfortable. There's a lockable cabinet but we didn't generally lock our rooms (though we could have). There were (at least... More

We stayed at this nice little place in May, and its located 8 km away from Chamba proper. It's a bit of a trek from the road upto the place, and well worth the climb! Its run by a family of 4 and their helpers, and from start to end, we were reminded of how nice people can be in... More

Himalayan Orchard Huts is a place you will come back to again and again – in person, and in your mind. From the moment I arrived, the Dhami family made me feel welcome, relaxed and comfortable. I stayed in a second floor room near the spring-fed pool. It was absolute heaven to wake up to the sound of the water... More

In the middle of a month of travelling in North India, our small group of Canadians landed in this haven. Remote and requiring walking up a mountain side, the stay in the home of Prakesh and his family was a wonderful break from the demands of moving about.  The food is home made and the best we had in India....

Our group pass almost a week in this beautiful place but my heart is still here and will be for really long time. The hospitality of the family is beyond all expectations because you just can't expect the experience you will live at Orchard Hut. The location is amazing, located on the side of a mountain with a gorgeous view... More

Our visit to Orchard Hut was beyond expectation. We went there expecting a normal tourist place. However it transformed into a gathering of families. The whole family is engaged in hospitality at a fundamentally Indian cultural level and exude love and warmth. We felt as one of their clan and became extremely close with the children and elders alike. Dhamis... More

If you want a gentle,peaceful, and loving experience of the Himalayas it's people and natural beauty I can't recommend Orchard Hut enough. The Dhami family and their staff are extremely professional and at the same time provide a family warmth. This is my forth visit. I come as a single person but I've watched them embrace newly weds, families, and... More

I've been to the Himalayas a lot with my family but our stay in Chamba at Orchard Hut with the Dhami family and also at Ridgemoor Cottage was the most memorable experience of the himalayas I've had so far. The location of their house is unbeatable and puts you right into the lap of the mountains surrounded by orchards and... More
