Independent first floor section of Vayu Kutir, the space is ideally suited for long stay, work and travel. The accommodation has fiber optic internet & excellent 4G wi-fi connectivity. Located on 700 sm farmland with vegetable plantations, fruit trees, fish ponds, chicken coop etc. Vayu Kutir is perched on high ground overlooking river Beas & Pong reservoir with the Dhauladhar range as the bakdrop. All essential are available within 3-km with prompt Amazon delivery including pantry items.

The space
Located within Pong reservoir bird sanctuary, 150 m from Beas river, with Jwala ji, Chintpurni, and Baglamukhi temples just 25 to 35 min away; the cottage is ideally suited for work and recreation.

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 Jawala Ji, Chintpurni, and Baglamukhi.

The cottage, with unique architecture and color scheme, is located on a sprawling 2 kanal plot. Perched majestically on high ground, the cottage has a commanding and uninterrupted (picture post card!) view of Pong reservoir, Beas river and Dehra town, with the Dhauladhar mountain range looming in the backdrop.

You will be hosted by a US returned IAF veteran, a former fighter pilot, and his lady wife.

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.

The apartment is sumptuously furnished.

Guest access
Entire first floor and roof-top. Entire surrounding area which has vegetable gardens, fruit plantations, and a hen coop.

Other things to note
There is a Sanskrit university nearby with an eye popping modern campus.

The heritage village of Garli nearby is your host's ancestral village.

Our guests have a well equipped independent kitchen, but we can provide home cooked meals at very reasonable additional charge. The meals are cooked using farm fresh, organic vegetables and eggs.

The apartment is sumptuously furnished with Godrej Interio furniture.

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.

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.
