Homestay in the Tirthan valley


Make your visit to the Himalayas one-of-a-kind by staying in our homestays, rather than hotels. You don’t just enjoy the local culture and warmth of our people, but also generate income for locals who have lesser economic opportunities.

All the homestays that are listed on this page are either of our cooperative members or other locals who are trying to benefit from the tourism industry and are to be encouraged. Further, Himalayan Ecotourism makes sure that the listed properties match a certain criteria of hospitality, hygiene and service.

We strongly recommend you stay in these properties managed by the local families.
Please contact us for booking.
