I spent one week with Devanshe and Mike. the room was cozy, clean and quite. The food was very tasty. The views were amazing. And all the people around were very nice to me. It s a very nice place to relax and take care of yourself eating healthy and breezing pure air. Thank you very much!

Hey thanks Victoria. You were great to have around; enjoyed playing Pétanque (Boules) & Cribbage with you. Hope you come back some day as a yoga teacher. Our best wishes.

“Heavenly!”
Reviewed 31 March 2017 for a stay in March 2017

What an amazing place this is. Completely outside of any previous experience I've had. The peace and serenity of the place marks it out as a must for any weary traveller.

As others have noted, it is remote; way up in the hills. The views are spectacular. Mike and Devanshe are superb hosts and the food is to die for! Do not expect bright lights and nearby amusements, this is a total getaway place, like no other.

“Great experience”
Reviewed 27 November 2016 for a stay in August 2016

I stayed in Himalayan Orchard for a week with Michael and Devanshe as a workawayer. Both of them are very kind and frendly. Here has a lot of nature, so you can enjoy great experience if you visit here. I will visit again!!
Thank you, all of you, Michael and Devanshe.
今年の夏、一週間だけですが訪問しました。
デバンシーとマイクの2人はとても優しくて親切でした。
自然に囲まれていて、普段では経験できないようなのんびりした時間を過ごす事ができました。
インドを訪れた際には必ずまた訪問したいと思います!

“Fantasic stay at the quiet, beautiful Himalayan Orchard!”
Reviewed 8 November 2016 for a stay in July 2016

I had a lovely stay at the Himalayan Orchard. Mike and Devanche were the most fantastic hosts to stay with. Mike was always at hand the take me on a himalayan hiking adventures, guiding me along beautiful high passes through the forests and to the local peaks. We even had a great picnic cooked by Devanche at one of the local peaks. Devanche's cooking was to die for. Ranging from delicious home grown fruits and cheeses to the most flavoursome curries.
The farm is in a beautiful setting, with great views over the himalayan foothills. I had a great stay here and I would fully recommend it to anyone! 10/10

“A perfect retreat deep in the himalayan quiet !”
Reviewed 2 November 2016 for a stay in May 2016

I stayed in Himalayan Orchards some weeks as a workawayer, and definitely it was my best experience with workaway ! Rooms are clean, cozy and comfortable, food is truly good and prepared with an inspiration from all over the world ; you can't need something else ! But above all, I can remember the fantastic view from my room, deep into the peaceful mountains... I highly recommand that place !

Thank you Romaine. We miss (and envy) your fantastic guitar playing and singing ability. Have you cut an album just yet? Or are you focusing on philosophy? We hope you visit again some day.
