Where you’ll stay


The Earth Homes have been designed using inspiration from old Kumaoni homes. Each Home is clad with mud and boasts of insulated mud flooring and a suite with a limewashed bathroom.

The original, Nayalap’s luxury tents are large and spacious with ensuite bathrooms, a bedroom and a living cum dining area. The tents are set in an oak forest near a village. The forest attracts a host of finches and the flying squirrel.
