This place is a little gem hidden in the lap of nature in the beautiful Himalayas! Love the way every luxury hut is named after a city in Himachal Pradesh. It is just amazing how it balances modern luxury with ethnic charm with an age-old construction style. We also loved their restaurant - delicious, flavorful freshly prepare food! The quality...

This feedback is looooong overdue! I went there in December 2012 with a couple of friends and still reminisce about the couple of nights spent there in a snowy December! Met the owner Mr. Sood at the reception itself and was highly impressed by his professional outlook owing to the fact that we were just walk-ins without any prior booking!... More

We stayed in the top machaan and it had the perfect view with river flowing just in front and covered with hills, felt like we are in the lap of mother nature. Machaans are so beautifully made that we... More

We decided to have a short vacation and chose The himalyan Village based on the reviews. It takes about 13 hours drive time from Delhi, if you include small breaks then your total time is around 14-15 hours on road. As the drive was turning tiring, i was growing little skeptical, whether the decision was right or not. Finally we... More

My landing up at the Himalayan village was quite accidental. A friend and I decided to just "go with the flow" and ended up in Kasol. The Himalayan Village looked very charming right away, so we decided to give it a try. Set against the back drop of the foothills of Himalayas, and the vibrant flow of Parvati river a... More
