Soothes your Soul in Nag Tibba
After a trek of about 2kms when you reach the mountain top, the view of the forest, the cloud, the fresh air, the smell of the wild flowers will leave you awestruck. As you enter the sitting area with a glass roof and a small nursery in the centre and, you sip in the fresh Rhododendron (Buransh) drink all your fatigue will vanish like magic.
Now, its time to enter your rooms. The big spacious cottages and dormitories are made from mud and stone in the traditional ‘Koti Banal’ architecture which was used in olden times by local villagers and has been revived. You will be served with fresh Garhwali cuisine and also international cuisine like Chinese, Mexican and Continental but the ingredients used in all the food items are sourced from the farm or the local farmers. This place is a must visit for those who want to escape technology and spend some time with the real trees and flowers, mountains and cloud, stare at the stars in the night.
