The space
Located on 700 sm farmland with vegetable plantations, fruit trees, chicken coop etc. Vayu Kutir is perched on high ground overlooking river Beas & Pong reservoir with the Dhauladhar range as backdrop. All essential are available within 3-km with prompt Amazon delivery including pantry items.

The property is located within Pong reservoir bird sanctuary, 150 m from Beas river, with Jwala ji, Chintpurni, and Baglamukhi temples just 25 to 35 min away.

Heritage villages Pragpur and Garli are 6 & 8 km respectively.

Hill stations Dharamshala & Palampur are both 2-hr drive. Jamble Bassi & Nagrota Surian - excellent viewing spots for winter migratory birds - are 30-min & 1-hr respectively. Our guests can make day trips to the above destinations and return to the comfort and warm hospitality of Vayu Kutir at night, thus avoiding the hassles of booking hotel accommodation at multiple destinations.

Vayu Kutir is also suited for long stay birders, hikers and nature lovers and those on pilgrimage to the above mentioned temples.

The cottage, with unique architecture and color scheme, is perched majestically on the edge of a plateau with commanding and uninterrupted view of Pong reservoir, Beas river and Dehra town; the Dhauladhar mountain range looms as the backdrop for the picture post card view.

You will be hosted by an IAF veteran, a former fighter pilot, and his lady wife. The hosts stayed in the US for 8 years and the accommodation excels western hosting standards.

At Vayu Kutir, we don't just host our guests, we pamper them. We don't just welcome them into our home, we welcome them into our hearts. We do so in so many different ways...we prefer that you read the reviews by our past guests to get an idea.

Where you’ll be

Dehra Gopipur, Himachal Pradesh, India

The cottage is at the edge of village Diyara on the outskirts of a forest. The nearest house is 100-m away. You will enjoy a lot of solitude, yet we will be always there to help. The nearby forest is known to have deers and jackals. Guests are required to exercise caution near the forest area for wild animals.

There is an easy hiking trail through the surrounding jungle which starts from the cottage. A second hiking trail that starts from the cottage takes you along the banks of river Beas. In both cases you get to see a lot of birds.
