After some small uphill roads via a local village, we arrived at the Rhotia Valley Tented lodge. Next to the beautiful view, friendly staff and amazingly good food, the tents were very comfortable (especially the beds were very good). Also the fact that all the profit that is being made is invested into the orphanage next door, makes the stay even more worthwhile.
