We enjoyed the small cozy rooms at this very hospitable home stay.. this was our first experience of a home stay, but I must say it was a memorable one. The food was very nice with many options.. The dogs there are so friendly that they will roam with you to the places around.. We did a small trek to the Riverside with a local dog in the early morning and it really the peace of mind we were looking for.. Clean flowing chilled water in the Pin Valley surrounded by snow covered peaks.. The host Mr. Kunzang Tara was very hospitable and suggested us with good food and places to visit around for treks in our future endeavors.. This is the best home stay in Mudh Village, Pin Valley..

It's amazing how owner of Tara homestay is able to diversify itself into many staying options, they have riverside tents, homestay and hotel all in Mud: a place with no network whatsoever.
Tara house homestay is a small place with four rooms above restaurant out of which two have attached washrooms and two with common washroom. We booked room with attached washroom but they are tiny. Rooms were clean and decent in size with windows on two sides. They also have provision for heating rooms in winter by tandoor pipe.
Host and staff were very welcoming and caring. Food was also good, must try egg fried rice.

Mud is quite a remote place and an off beat destination in Spiti valley. The road to Mud village is quite dusty and the roads are in bad condition. The road to Mud passes through Pin National park and who knows if you are in for a surprise and spot Wild animals. We were lucky and spotted a leopard and a fox in the late evening.

Talking about Mud - it’s a beautiful hamlet in the midst of dark but beautiful Mountains. The town have a total of 12-13 homes and around 5-6 are Homestays.

Sonam Tara/ Tara Homestay is one of the best homestays in Mud and the rooms are also quite decent with a good view of the surrounding panaroma.

This place needs a special mention about it’s food. We were served delicious pizza in the evening snacks and the place where the food is served is quite cosy and comfortable.

We really liked the food preparation and all the dishes be it sabzi, daal were delicious. We even had pan cakes in the breakfast( can u imagine being served tempting pan cakes in a such a remote place), hats off to the brothers who run this place.

Note: phone network even BSNL doesn’t get any reception here so sit back don’t panic and enjoy the stay and ensure to do a small trek till Pin Parvati ( most of us are lazy so didn’t mention to climb the trek) but it would be really adventurous to climb Pin Parvati though.

We stayed here for one night and this is one of the best homestays in mud as far as we have seen. This property is pet friendly, they have four rooms and two rooms with attached bathroom and two with one common bathroom. If you love nature, this is an ideal location as there is plenty of greenery ,you can walk along the water stream,peas field, and do much more. People of the property were kind and welcoming.The peaceful and fresh environment is what we enjoyed the most.The food was amazing and filled with kindness. We enjoyed all our meals. However the size of the rooms and bathrooms is a bit small but soon they are going to renovate their property.I would definitely recommend this place to others.

Stayed for a night. Great views with terrific trails to go on walks. The owners accommodated request for a last minute change of date by putting up in another place. The home made foods were excellent!

We visited Tara Homestay in June 2022 with family and friends. Tara homestay is now under renovation.So the owner is providing different Homestays. One in which we stayed was Namkha Homestay. It was rather a hotel than a homestay.The views from the rooms are just breathtaking!The rooms are very cosy and warm. Even at minus temperature you feel quite comfortable.
The food was delicious. The staff helps you in every way they can. Very very cooperative people.

This destination is not to be missed.I would love to visit it again !

Nice clean room. Helpful people and good food and service. Peaceful place with amazing landscapes. No network at all so call your family before reaching this place. Great detox if one wants to be away from screens.

Mudh village of Pin valley is generally used as the starting base of Vaba pass & Pin Parbati Pass trekking. But the mesmerizing natural beauty of Mudh village at Pin Valley is just “out of the world” and so is the hospitality provided by the “Tara Guest House”. It is basically a homestay, but provides almost all the comforts that a full scale hotel can provide.
“Tara” offers two double bedrooms with attached bath (it has a geyser as well), rest of the rooms have common toilet. The rooms having attached bath, offers spectacular view of the Pin valley as well as sunrise. We were pleasantly surprised to see spotless linens on the bed and clean toilet and more so as the house is traditionally built with stone, mud & hay.
More surprises were in store for us, when we looked at the Menu Card. They have Local, Chinese, Tibetian, Continental even dishes from Israel to satisfy the taste buds of a connoisseur. Within one day we tried to taste as many dishes as possible. Tibetian Butter Tea and Tibetian Bread with cheese were simply great. In the morning we had our breakfast on the terrace, enjoying the view of bright sunshine caressing the curves of the mountains & valley. Azure blue sky on the top and Pin river having the same colour way below the house … its like a picture postcard.
Above all it is their approach towards the guests that truly symbolize the ancient Indian saying “Atithi Debo Bhavo”. Mr. Sonam, his son Kunsang and the little boy Akash … we chatted with them through the evening. It was a truly enriching experience to know about their lifestyle, their struggle & of course their success.
They are doing commendable job ensuring comfort of the tourist, but don’t expect luxury, as this is a tiny hamlet at the remote corner of Spiti.

Thanks “Tara” for everything and best wishes for Kunsang for his PhD and his brother’s IIT Entrance.

We stayed in Tara guest house in June 2018. Rooms are very clean and very well maintained.View from room is amazing. You can see snow-capped mountains and colourful flowers from the room. There is no construction/house in front of this guest house so you will get endless view of beautiful mountains.
Bedding and floor carpet is perfect for cold weather. Another best part is their food. We had set buffet and it was more than enough. We had BEST LOCAL style pizza made in their stone oven.
Don’t miss their mint tea. Aroma and taste is perfect for that weather. They have roof top restaurant where you can have tea and it has one of the best sun set view and the best part is their hospitality and service.
Parking is not in front of the hotel as this mud village has very small roads. Also they have satellite phone with minimum charges because there is no range for any telecom provider, not even BSNL.
Overall we had great stay in Tara guest house.

I will rate Tara guest house 5/5 for its food, room, service, hospitality.
