A hilltop house located in apple orchards with 2 dedicated guest rooms in which 1 rooms is attach with kitchenette & hygienic washrooms & 1 room is good size bedroom. Memorizing mountain view, tranquil location, cow milk & peaceful surroundings are something our domain. Our house is equipped with all the basic amenities & most suitable for peace-seeker in Himalayas & especially for book lover, meditation practitioner & birders.

The space
From the parking lot to the home ,it is a twenty minutes trek through 300 steps uphill, gaining a decent altitude from the parking area, trek is on nicely built steps, don't worry about that but due to gaining good altitude, trek can be exhausting for first timers......I believe you are fit enough, but trust me the view you witness after reaching uphill is breathtaking. The stay is nature's lap, surrounded by lush greenery, apple orchards, full of butterflies and birds in addition to sounds of Beas river, birds and trees is exemplary.
If you want to disconnect from daily chaos and city hustles, this will be best option.
you can see the whole Manali city through your window.
A little arrangement can be done to carry your luggage uphill, but try to carry light, and usage of rucksack bags will be much better. It is advisable to wear good sport shoes or walking boot, it allow certain comfort while walking up & going down in the mountains.
