Periodic buses ply from outside the property & a taxi stand is just 300 mtr away.

Last but not the least, you do not have to climb a single step to access the room. A boon for the elderly and the differently abled.
We invite you to climb on the terrace to get great UN-interrupted mountain view and watch the pristine open fields on the west side. An alpine rivulet at the rear invites you for a dip. We have made endeavors not to disturb the outside surroundings and create an Eco-system so as to resemble an UN-disturbed forest.
