Why we love this place

This is a very unique community run venture with the goal of enabling the youth of village Kyari in connecting to their natural roots while finding an organic means of livelyhood from eco-tourism. Its open-hearted hospitality offers an insight into local village life bordering Corbett.

Surrounded by dense forest lands and the River Khichri flowing close by, nature comes to you with the region’s profusion of birds manifesting themselves from dawn to dusk with their musical chirping.
