          Dear Madhavi, Thanks so much for the lovely review. Glad that you enjoyed the visit so much. Hope to see you once again in Gaunap. But the next time you visit, our place will most likely be connected to the electricity grid.

          Is it possible to walk to Jageshwar and back on the same day?

          Answer
          Response from Footloose_2006 | Property representative |
          Jageshwar is about 17 km by walk from Gaunap. So it will be extremely difficult to walk to Jageshwar and back on the same day.
