Itinerary

  • Relax while sipping coffee

    Arrival - Kotgarh

    After your overnight volvo journey reach Shimla around 6:30am. We board a private Tempo traveller and leave for Kotgarh (Breakfast on the way around 8:30am). The drive will take you though dense forests, apple and cherry orchards. The town of Narkanda falls on the way. Reach homestay by afternoon. Check into your room, rest a while and get fresh. In the evening, we will take a walk through a hundred years old heritage. The trail will take us through villages, apple orchards and dense forests. We will also visit the Kotgarh church. You have to find what sparks a light in you so that you in your own way can illuminate the world like stars while you enjoy the warmth in bonfire

  • Hike Day

    Get up to a wonderful morning in the homestay, which is located amidst an orchard of cherry and apples, with a straight view of the snow clad Baspa ranges. After breakfast, we drive towards the base of Hatu. Those who want to trek up the mountain can do that too. As we will be sending the vehicle on top to get us back, those who don’t want to walk can drive up. It’s a choice as it’s a 1 hour walk to the top and the trail goes tough dense forests of Oak and Deodar. Once on the top we can enjoy the majestic views and click some photographs of the mountain views. We can walk to Jawbagh and spent some leisurely time there.

     

    In the evening we will be back to the homestay.

  • Beautiful Drive

    Get up to yet an another lovely morning. We will go for a morning walk with Alpha (A cute doggo) to a clearing amidst a forest and apple orchards. We can spend some time here watching the picturesque view from here. Return to the homestay, pack your stuff and leave for Shimla. Watch the setting sun from a cafe in famous mall road.
