Birdsong & Beyond

Starts ₹ 3,000 per night


Take a journey into your soul at the serene and offbeat holiday home – Birdsong & Beyond. Located on a mountain ridge in a hamlet in district Chamoli of Uttarakhand, almost equidistant from the ranges of Kedarnath and Badrinath, and a little too away from the popular trekking, pilgrim and rafting routes of the area, this charming homestay is the perfect combination of rustic living with modern luxuries. The pinewood cottage with its full-length glass picture windows and cosy decor makes for an ideal rural retreat for travellers seeking to reconnect with themselves and nature. This is truly a vacation spot far from the maddening crowd, in the heart of a village. The homestay offers homely comfort, soothing quiet, and a sense of time slowing down, in tandem with the rhythms of nature and a rustic lifestyle. For further delighting the senses, there is savoury local cuisine, often cooked with ingredients grown at the property or procured from local farmers, besides regular home-cooked meals.
