Encouraged by strong reviews on tripadvisor, we decided to go to Krish Rauni for a short break from the summer heat of Delhi, & we were definitely not disappointed. The positives are many, the most important being the tremendous hospitality of Mr. & Mrs.Kishore, which made us feel right at home. As mentioned in many reviews, the food was excellent. The location was terrific, overlooking a deep valley. Sitting out on the terrace at night in front of a comfortable bonfire, watching the stars twinkling in the sky above and the lights of distant houses twinkling in the valley below was a close to magical experience. Thanks to the game room with the TT table and TV, our 10 year old son was kept well occupied too.
Other than relaxing in the homestay, we did take a couple of walks up and down the surrounding hills through a pine forest and an apple orchard, which was a pleasant experience. The other interesting thing was a drive to Hatu Peak(altitude 3400m), from where one gets a good view of the snow covered Himalayan peaks. Hatu Peak is about a 20 km drive from Krish Rauni. The last 7 km of the drive, from Narkanda up a very narrow road where one jostles for space with buffalos intent on getting to one of the meadows for grazing, is an experience not to be missed.
Overall this was a great trip. If I have one crib, it is about the room that we got on the ground floor, which became very cramped with the addition of an extra bed for my son. I wish we had managed to get one of the rooms on the first floor, which looked to be much more spacious.
That aside, Krish Rauni is a place that I would definitely recommend for anyone looking for a relaxing break in a very picturesque part of Himachal Pradesh.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the first floor.

After a tiring journey from chandigarh to shimla, we have had a warmly welcome by Kishore unclegi & auntygi. The overall experience was very homelike and both unclegi & auntygi took great care of us & ensured we had a very comfortable stay. Our room had a breathtaking view of beautiful valley's complemented by beautiful weather & the room service was up to the mark. Really, it was a thumbs-up stay at the resort & surely will be back in my next vacation.

We spend 4 nights and still want to revisit on next vacations. Mrs & Mr Kishore are very perfect host and its tough u r away from home but still u feel homely. We have visited Apple and Cherry orchids Kids have really enjoyed the orchids and cool breeze and specially they miss Mr & Mrs kishore as there were to buzy all the time playing with them. Also we had enjoyed the evenings with born fire and having dinner in the terrace. Also Vineet is very nice nature wise and i had great time with him playing TT and visiting cherry orchids. Perfect away from noise and pollution its makes your holiday perfect. I wish Mr Kishore and his family all the very best wishes for the good work....

Nature at its best in Hill terrain:

Krish Rauni is a calm and serene atmosphere. Nature at its best for viewing terrain mountain slopes, which is little away from Simla. It is worth a little drive during day by watching flora and fauna. A resort amidst apple orchards, one can have an early morning walk on the strip, breathe clean air and could hear bird call. Mr. Kishore and Mrs.Shobana welcomes everybody with a cheerful message, which is quite appealing. Room is well maintained and hospitality is at its best. Thank you Kishore and your family.

It's a home away from home – since it's managed by a family. Krish Rauni Resort is situated at a height of 8,000 feet at Matiana in Himachal Pradesh. Himachal is a part of the Great Himalayas of India. It is on the Hindustan Tibet Road (NH22) – only 45 kms. ahead of Shimla. As the name suggests it is set amidst an extensive Apple Orchard overlooking a vast valley. It's surrounded by Apple trees, lush green fields of cash crops like potatoes, cauliflower, peas, cabbage etc. Stay at Krish Rauni Resort offers a very different experience altogether. Being situated on the ridge one can enjoy the view of rising sun one side and the grandeur of the setting sun on the other side. There is a huge terrace overlooking the valley. A perfect place to enjoy breakfast under the umbrella and spend hours of leisure sitting under the stars during dinner time. During full moon the valley offers an awesome view under the spell of moon light. Food is cooked and served on order. ... more   less
