Back to Basics


Back to Basics

Are you ready for a different kind of vacation?

An exotic, remote locale?  Beautiful natural vistas?  Exercise & fresh air?

Nestled in the very remote foothills of majestic Himalayas sits a very remote traditional Himalayan village, called Khola in Badiyargarh Valley. It’s a perfect place for meditation, yoga, nature walks, bird-watching and to experience outside silence and inside peace. The lush green forests of this region are home to an astounding multiplicity of flora and fauna. A description of the charismatic beauty of this village would be incomplete without a mention of the people who inhabit this blessed village – simple, willing to help and hardworking.

Most of the inhabitants of the village depend on the resources of the village for their survival. The water resources in the valley are natural. Humans, animals and plants live in harmonious co-existence in the midst of a perfectly preserved, unspoilt eco-system. It is the perfect place for reflection and relaxation.

A real escape! Exotic culture, great exercise, amazing landscapes, awesome quality of traditional food cooked in traditional styles, total relaxation, and de-stressing. Overall this trip is a great combination of culture, local traditions, and lifestyle and offers some great views of Himalayas with unmatched beauty of Mother Nature.
