You must really take a night-time shower (in the summer!) and , if it's a clear night, you'll be treated to a most wonderful view of the Milky Way. We set up a... More

Terra Khaya was absolute perfect food, the views, the mist between the conifers at dawn. It was cozy, warm and quiet. An inpressive place, made by human hands on the slopes of the hogsback mountains. It was so different and so good.
