I always prefer off beats for my stay during the trips that I take for my work or leisure. During my this trip, I was travelling with my mom and I was not sure about staying at “Pong Eco Village Resort” as some of the properties at offbeat location may surprise last minute. I could not find much information on the internet about the stay at as well. Scrolling through, I found the number of the owner Mr. Mukesh Ji on internet and dialed to get the vibe of the place- What a man he is! A gem of a person, knowledgably, kind, warm and very patient. He decided to take us in as I requested that I am travelling with my Mom. Later I came to know from the owner, Mr Mukesh ji that the property in not listed online for various reasons, as he want to keep it niche for the certain type of visitors only, a special interest tourism or tourists. Thank God, I got this opportunity to stay “Pong Eco Village resort” artistically crafted spaces with large open space, organic garden and fruit trees amidst of the nature and on the waterfront of the Pong dam. A great location for bird watching, relaxed holidays, boating and fishing at Pong Dam. Must visit place and I am certainly returning back with my folks.

This place is located on hill top from where pong lake / Maharana pratap sagar is viewable, from this property sunrise point and boating points are nearby. About the food we tried local Himachali cuisine that was yummy 🤤 Mr Mukesh takes special interest in cooking. Room was neat and clean. It is very peaceful location in the lap of nature those who are planning for offbeat peaceful location in Himachal this is the best option for them

The most idyllic place, beneath the stars, the water lapping, gentle sounds from the village, bonfires flames dancing into the night sky, is what The Eco Village offered. Mukesh is a humble personality with passion for the land, birds and locals. Sunrise walks and boating in the lake with him was so informative. This is not an offbeat destination only it's a heartbeat 💓 destination with local flavors from Mukesh and Team. Thankyou for making our stay with friends so beautiful.

Amazing place. Peaceful and relaxing. The food is outstanding and we were treated to a variety of Indian, local Himachal, and continental cuisine with each meal.

It is such an exquisite place surrounded with greenery ,birds chirping, fresh air, lake and totally Eco Construction. It transports you to the rustic Indian roots but has all the modern facilities. The rooms , bed linen and toilets were absolutely cean. Mr. Mukesh treated us with organic vegetables from his garden and even prepared fish fresh from the morning catch. The staff Sanjay and Surender are polite and helpful in every way. We recommend this place for those who want to get away from polluted ,busy city life and get close to nature and enjoy some peace.

What a hidden gem we found. Located away from the bustle of pong dam this is truly one of the best properties we have been to. Constructed in eco friendly way with mud houses, the rooms are comfortable and bathrooms clean. They have sustainable tourism at their heart and zero waste policy which makes the stay extra special. Kudos to the owner for having this vision and executing it in a way which makes it so comfortable and enjoyable. Mr Mukesh is full of anecdotes and stories which make for some pleasant conversations. Chef Mahavir and Mr Sanjay make the meals super enjoyable. The food is absolutely lip-smacking. We were treated to the local dham which was one of the best we have had. We are already planning for our next visit.
