We and our close friends, four couples , spent three blissful days at Kudrat . The cottage is well constructed , rooms well appointed !The entire property is beautifully and aesthetically designed keeping in mind both form and function and is exceptionally clean and well maintained.

The hosts Bhawna and Sudhir are both passionate and professional and ensured that our stay was comfortable.

While Sudhir planned our outings and guided us to trek to the meadows , hills and the river and the villages nearby , the mouthwatering meals were personally designed and supervised by Bhawna and were outstanding .. Indian , Continental and Mediterranean !

The bed room had a view of the hills , the beds were snug and warm equipped with electric heating and the clean bathrooms were fitted with exquisite fittings and plumbing with running hot water !

The common lounge and dining area were tastefully done up with comfortable chairs and sofas where we spent the entire evening !

Both the lounge and adjoining dining room were equipped with state of art wood fired smoke less chimneys ensuring comfortable warmth without tears!

It was indeed a dream holiday .. breathing fresh oxygen enriched air , soaking in the winter sun , breathtaking view of the hills , azure skies and green pine trees , experiencing crystal clear chilled river water coupled with outstanding hospitality ..all contributed to a heady , rejuvenating and a unforgettable experience ..

A stay highly recommended!!!

As the title suggests, it is 100% true. There is nothing like kudrat because it consists of everything that can make you feel in heaven. It's in the lap of Himalayas, full of nature very serene and the scenery from any corner of the house is just out of the world. This house is 5km from the tirthan river and believe me u r not going to feel that u r missing the river as the location of the house is mind blowing.

Every balcony in the house gives u stunning views of snow peaks. The view from "KUDRAT" is a treat for mind and eyes as it relaxes u in the blink of an eye.

Everybody desires to have good food and a comfortable stay and "KUDRAT" is just unmatched in whole of the tirthan valley and I can guarantee it. When I talk about food, Bhawna is amazing in all the aspects of cooking and is providing multiple cuisines in that remote location. Some of them I liked a lot were pizza pasta n momos. And if I talk about comfort then I would certainly give them 5 stars because they have everything that a 5 star property offers and make you feel very comfortable. Both Sudhir and Bhawna have put all their effort to make it such a fabulous place to relax and unwind.

If anybody coming for a week long holiday to the tirthan valley then this a best place to stay. Sudhir has wonderful itinerary for a week long that certainly keeps u busy or I would say there are many places to go around like waterfalls n trekking and also trout fishing which is the very famous in tirthan valley.

Sudhir n bhawna u were just fantastic as a host and we would love coming again and again to you. I am missing all the conversations we had during tea and coffee at various times and also the long evening session we had last night of our trip. All I would say is this holiday will just always remain close to my heart.
Thanks for all the love u gave. U r going to have a very bright future with this lovely property called "KUDRAT" 😍😍

Kudrat, a name that truly symbolizes what you can experience in this beautiful resort, you experience the beauty of nature. A true gem that takes you away from the din of daily life and makes you appreciate mother nature. Each nook of the hotel exudes warmth, where you just want to snuggle in and soak it all up. At the same time the trails and beautiful village outside, calls out to your wild side, to explore and go on an adventure. I would personally recommend folks to take a long break, to enjoy all that this hotel has to offer. A special mention to the hosts Sudhir and Bhawana who took time to make me feel at home , ensuring all my smallest requests where fulfilled be it extra towels or playing the role of a local guide. Traveler's tip : Cook makes the yummiest butter chicken and the hosts give yoga classes if asked.

Our stay was just fantastic, what to say? No words to describe this untouched beauty’ Kudarat’. As we approached from a long journey all tired, seeing Kudarat we were all charged up. How beautifully this area is done up. Host Bhawana& Sudhir are such warm people, they make you so comfortable, and your journey worth rememberable- we have had best food ever, we literally used to look forward to it. The place has been beautifully done up with authentic pieces all over, common areas, rooms, bathrooms all are well taken care of. During this Pandemic time, small small things have been so well taken care of. Sudhir & Bhawana we look forward to coming back soon.

Though it was one of our random trip to try a new place but it turned out to be one of the best. This property “Kudrat” is no doubt a very beautifully constructed, rooms are spacious and views are breathtaking but we really enjoyed the hospitality of the hosts and their staff. We reached around 1:30 a.m. and hosts made sure we eat our dinner and sleep, which was a very kind gesture as otherwise we had to sleep empty stomach after 13 Hrs drive as there were no good eating points on the way and we refrained to stop due to hygiene purposes.

Food at Kudrat is one thing we enjoyed the most along with the weather and the view. There are lot of other places to explore nearby and Sharchi village is one of them.

If you are looking for a calm and relaxed stay to rejuvenate yourself then “Kudrat” is the place, away from city life, tourists, traffic, noise etc. which one should try and experience themselves.

If you are like us, caught in City Madness and Corporate Melee, then Kudrat and Tirthan is a heavenly combination, and a must do.

The drive can be little tiresome from Gurgaon, so best is to take a break in between, however, with sights on the route, you will enjoy the experience.

Tirthan, still mostly untouched by mad rush and with serene views, has many half day activities to offer and is a great place to forget the other life for a few days. Treks to the meadow, or the waterfall, or fishing, or riverside walk ... All nice family activities.

And the stay at Kudrat is an absolute pleasure ... Very tastefully created and maintained, the property is lively and the staff is extremely helpful and makes great effort to give you the best service ...

The cherry on top are the owners Bhawna and Sudhir, who really make this home stay a delightful experience with their personal touch.
Sudhir is ever smiling and was always ready to help with arranging the activities, and ensuring we were well taken care of. And Bhawna, who personally cooks for the guests, serves delightful dishes and lays out a tasty multicuisine experience.

PS - as you go on treks, please carry a bag to pick plastic trash that some people so carelessly throw around, and help keep Tirthan and the environment clean.

Hands-down the best homestay experience so far, and we have stayed in some pretty amazing homestays in many countries. Sudhir and Bhavana have created a warm and delightful home. They paid attention to very tiny details that made our stay comfortable and enjoyable. Both of them are super friendly and they truly enjoy hosting people. Me and my husband became fans of food that was so mindfully prepared by Bhavana and her team. Every dish, even Dalia was awesome. Sudhir suggested some amazing hidden places around the valley and helped us get there. It’s a beautiful home, genuinely friendly family, lip smacking food, and is surrounded by a stunning view of valley and lush green mountains.

Kudrat Boutique Homestay is a home away from home but with a much better morning view than our homes I guess ! We had the most wonderful time staying here at the Stone house. The hosts, Sudhir and Bhawna are one of the warmest couples that we’ve met ! Staying at kudrat was definitely much better than staying at a hotel. The food cooked by Bhawna is super delicious and nutritious at the same time . We really looked forward to our meals everyday that we were there. Cleanliness and hygiene that everyone expects when staying at such a property was at par at this place . I’m very particular about bathrooms being spacious , airy, clean and well lit and the bathroom of our room at Kudrat ticked off all these aspects apart from being aesthetically appealing too. The room was beautifully designed and decorated and had a spacious balcony with an amazing view of the mountains. Although usually one gets bored staying in the mountains for too long but it was different here. We felt like this was one place where could stay for a longer amount of time. I think the two things that I miss the most from this place are the view from our room and the food cooked by Bhawna. We are looking forward to visiting this property soon !

We had a all girls trip to Kudrat Homestay and we loved every minute of it. It’s a beautiful place run by Bhawana and Sudhir who are fun to chat with and at the same time a “no-nonsense” couple. Each and every room is beautifully furnished, the food is just too good, staff is well trained and courteous, location of the Homestay is “far from the maddening crowd”. You can even do some day treks from here if you are interested or you can just chill with some wine.
Kudrat Homestay is a long drive from Chandigarh but trust me it is totally worth it. Will definitely visit this place again. Bhawana and Sudhir thank you for hosting us

If you are looking for a wonderful experiential homestay in Tirthan valley, this is definately the place for you! I had one of the best experiences staying at Kudrat Boutique Homestay and will definately highly recommend this place to anyone. Words cannot do full justice to the experience of Kudrat but ill give it a try....
Kudrat is such a charming warm enchanting homestay with tastefully done chic interiors and peaceful setup admist nature, you cannot help but fall in love with every bit of this place.The rooms offer a magnificent view of the valley with soothing therpeautic sounds of the tirthan river.
However the highlight of this place are the hosts super warm couple -Bhavana and Sudhir and their adorable daughter Kudrat. They just add so much to the whole positive vibe of this place and make you feel as comfortable as you would be at home.
The food prepared under master chef Bhavana needs special mention...the finesse with which she prepares the food will always leave u asking for more.
Bonfire nights under starlit sky with right music and people isnt dreamy anymore..you can experience it at for real at Kudrat.
Cant wait to plan my next visit to this place soon!

Is the property on the river front, if not how far is the river from it.
Answer from bhawana k
Kullu, India7 contributions
Hi..we are exactly 5 kms away from the river tucked away in a quiet peaceful side by the forest. It takes 10 mins by car to reach the river. We get beautiful river sound and very distant views of river. I guess ...What neeraj is saying is that we organise lunch by the river at a secluded private spot and this spot is 40 mins from our place. And at that spot there is a villager who organises a great local delicacy lunch by the river and you pay him directly on actuals. It's an experience. I guess he charges around Rs. 300 - Rs 350 per person. We dont charge for this lunch. I hope your query is answered now. Regards Bhawana.
