Tirthan: Abode of Woods


The owners of this property are local villagers and they stay here itself thus giving it a personal touch. All the houses are made of pure wood inside out. The best part about this place is that its owner filed a petition in Himachal High Court demanding ban on construction of dams on the Tirthan river. After 5 years of intense struggle against powerful forces, he got the judgement in nature’s favour and today Tirthan is the only river in Himachal Pradesh on which, no dam has been constructed. All the other rivers are undergoing exploitation in the hands of the humans.

This eco-stay is spread into a huge area and you have to sit in a trolley and cross the river to reach it. Trolley is a common way of transportation in mountains and its a great experience to enjoy its ride. The entire area is full of fruit trees like apples, walnut, apricot, pears, japani and lot of vegetables too. They also have cattle to provide milk and butter. You will get home cooked meal. Most of its ingredients are from the farm itself. And, do book in advance as its mostly sold out. Their price is more than worth of what they are providing.
