These wooden cottages offer an earthy homestay, in the delightful village of Jibhi, in the Kullu District of Himachal Pradesh. With a mere 3-400 residents scattered around the surrounding hills, Jibhi is a refuge of peace and serenity.

I live on the property with my family, so it is a real family homestay. Most of our large extended families live in Jibhi and nearby villages. You will find a warm and friendly environment, and we would love to help you create beautiful memories here.
I own Jibhi Adventure, a popular adventure company that organizes, treks, mountaineering expeditions, bike tours, birding trips, photo tours, rafting, etc. I can customize adventure activities according to your interests.
Since childhood, I have been roaming around the mountains with great enthusiasm, and there is hardly a place in the area that I have not been to.
I climbed my first mountain at the age of six, and haven't looked back since. After graduating with a degree in tourism studies from Central University, Delhi, I have done mountaineering courses from Atal Bihari Mountaineering Institute in Manali, including both instructor and rescue courses.
