Winter Season is fairly cold so do carry warm clothes. In Summers, we recommend that you carry layers since morning and evenings can come with a chill.
We do have electricity but if there is a fault in the line, the valley is no hurry to restore it! But the charm of candle lit dinners, bonfires and star lit nights more than makes up for it! Do not worry about the geysers not working! The washrooms are supplied with hot water thanks to Solar heaters. If all else fails, there is always the traditional way – the hamam!
The home has a kitchen where fresh food is made. So if there is an order to be placed, do so well in time! We source fresh produce from a nearby small town so it takes some planning! Which also brings us to the point that the valley is for lovers of nature. So if you are looking for a bustling market, you’d have to drive to Kullu (1.5 hours by car)! This also means that you should not rely on the availability of ATM’s!
Please note, smoking inside the rooms is strictly prohibited.
The valley is best suited for being one with nature, trekking to places you would not find in travel journals, and just being one with self. So let your city burden go, and embrace the slow pace of life.
A drive to valley is highly recommended. The roads are good and the drive wonderful. The Forest edge is around 530 kms from Delhi. So if you leave early, you will be in time for an evening tea. If you are in Chandigarh, a 260 kms drive would get you here in time for lunch.
You can also take the overnight Volvo till Aut. Pick and drop facility from Aut can be arranged through local taxi operators.
Bhuntar Airport is about 1.5 hours from The forest edge. Daily flights connect the region to Delhi and Chandigarh.
