    About

    Blessed with a beautiful house in the peaceful lake city of Nainital, situated in the foothills of Himalayas, me and my family decided to share our home with travelers and wandering souls who seek solace in the hills. To our pleasant surprise, we got a huge number of like-minded people showing up and decided to put up more rooms in our house for the guests to use, and a lot to share and learn with the guests. We are extremely grateful to our guests for giving us the opportunity to host and interact with people from diverse backgrounds traveling across the globe and find new connections that last forever. The homestay is hosted by my family which includes me, my father and my mother who love meeting new people, and would give you tons of local information and directions on travelling in and around the town, often over a cuppa tea!
