What an amazing experience! I spent a weekend in the Himalayas with 6 friends. We were from all over North America, all volunteering in Delhi. One friend did the planning and found Shali Heights. They were so lovely and our experience was extremely positive. Shali Heights arranged a guide named Raj for us who was very professional and a great trekker. The best part of the home stay is the sunset. Before dinner we sat outside and watched as the sun set over the foothills. It was truly a remarkable view. The food was great; they boiled enough water for all of us to take on our trek and Sanjay, the host, answered all of our questions regarding the Indian culture and the Himalayas. No language barrier, as Sanjay is fluent in English, which makes everything a bit easier. Don't expect luxury, but there's an american toilet, hot water and a comfy bed!
