Surroundings and Activities

Surroundings

Our home is located in the quiet village of Kandbari. This area is known for easy, picturesque walks among the hills, grasslands or farms.

The tea town Palampur is just a 15 minutes drive away.

The house, though far from the city crowd, is situated in a neighbourhood which offers isolation as well as opportunities for interaction with  the local villagers, mostly belonging to the gaddi tribe.

The basic supply can be found in the village but for more specifics needs, you will need to go to Palampur approximatively 25 minutes away. 

Activities

In the summer, there is a small stream with natural swimming pools down the village

In the winter, come to discover the snow. the snowline is only 20 minutes away and you could even be lucky enough to see the snow fall around the village. 

Hiking

Many hikes can be started directly from the house, different levels of intensity are available. You can go on your own or we could arrange a guide to take you or even accomodation and food if you want to go for an overstay night. 

Spirituality

Many areas in the house and in the garden can be perfect spots to sit to meditate, but there are many spiritual places around like the The Sambhav institute, The DJL nunnery.

Dharamsala, home of Dalai Lama in only 2h away by bus.

Others

Not far can also be found Bir -Billing (45 min) one of the world’s most famous paragliding spot.
