Enhanced Clean
This host committed to Airbnb's 5-step enhanced cleaning process.
Nestled at an altitude of 1808 metres and surrounded by snow capped mountains, this NOM homestay is named after a nearby river - Akash Ganga. The host, Ranaji, believes Akash Ganga is the perfect name for his home because it has a similar essence. The roof of the house is made up of stones which are replaced every few years.

The space
Akash Ganga is a homestay built by the Rana family’s forefather. The property is about 65 years old and happens to be the oldest in the village - covered with mud and stones, and plastered with gobar (cow dung). The house has three traditionally designed rooms with a mesmerizing view from the terrace. The wooden doors and traditional locks are perfectly preserved. The kitchen has little dining corner, a jyeti (a utensil with boiling water) is continuously running to keep warm. The property has both Indian and western style toilets with no shower panel. The hosts provide you with hot water all through the day for drinking, washing, and bathing. All basic amenities are made available at the stay. The village also has a couple of kirana shops.

Rudraprayag, Uttarakhand, India

Ever woken up to a snow capped view of the mountains, in a cosy warm hut? Or lived in an organic and sustainable surrounding? This lesser known village in the interiors of Garhwal lets you dive into the earthy experiences of the terrain. From the village are treks to Devratal, Chopta-Tungnath, Chandrasheela, and Madhyamaheshwar. Apart from all the walking and hiking around the village, you could also engage in activities such as bird-watching, fishing, and organic farming. Learning the beautiful Garhwali dialect is always an option. Surrounded by mountains on all sides, Akash Ganga provides you with a warm and welcoming stay designed with basic living conditions.
