Shady verandah

The rooms open onto the large shady verandah adjacent to the garden. The verandah provides a pleasant place to sit and talk with fellow guests in the evening or watch the rain during the monsoon season.

The large open roof area is ideal for those wanting to catch the sun, and provides amazing views of the surrounding area; the snow capped peaks bordering the Lahaul region are seen across the tops of the apple orchards; on the other side the view of the "van vihar" ancient Deodar forest leads on to the peak of Deo Tibba and the Hamta pass on the trekking route from Naggar village to Malana and the Parvati Valley.
