Superb View from my room 3 should stay in that room. Rooms & bathroom are quite big and decor is modern plus contemporary.Large windows with fireplace give the room a very nice feel. Place is clean and staff is very helpful. # Only on thing bathrooms should have exhaust fans.

As usual, The Himalayan has excellent service and a property that's exceedingly well maintained. A no-brainier decision, just try and manage a reservation and enjoy the hills. The layout, rooms and ambience is amazing!!!
