Overview
Villa -
2 Bedrooms , 2 Bathrooms , Sleeps 6
Dharamsala, Kangra District, Himachal Pradesh
Forktail villa built in the local Kangra Style of architecture. At the villa we have tried to incorporate the Permaculture philosophy in all areas of construction as best as we could. The house has been built with mud, stone, slate and bamboo. The idea was to create a building where very little building material had to be got from the outside to reduce the carbon foot print as much as possible.

The house is close to the village of Gamru in Dharamshala. Kotwali Bazar which is the main market of Dharamshala is 1 KM away. Even though we are so close to Dharamshala the villa is nicely tucked away from all the crowds and noise. Both the garden and backyard have spectacular views of the snow-capped Dhaulahars, there are small village shops, a large market, malls, cinema hall, restaurants etc all within walking distance of the house. You can ta...

About the neighbourhood
The Villa is located in the village of Gamru. It is 1 Km from the main Kotwali Bazar in Dharamshala. Inspite of the villa being so close to the town of Dharamshala it still is nicely tucked away from all the hustle and bustle to give you a feeling of seclusion once you are on the property. The location of the house is great for hikes and walks to Mcleodganj, Bhagsu Nag and Dharamkot using a mountain trail, reachable on foot within 30mins to an hour. If you wish to drive to any of these places then it is only a 10 mins drive further up the mountain. The house has good views of the Indru Nag temple. Through the day it is nice to watch Paragliders take off and fly with the Vultures and Eagles.
Getting around
You can get local cabs and buses easily to move around.

If you are taking a cab the nearest Landmark is Kirpu Mod. A small motor able road touches the main gate of the house but the drive from Kirpu Mod to the Gate is quite challenging. If you are coming for the first time its best to give us a call and we will share some of the best ways to get to the place. We have a problem with car parking and if you are driving your own car then I will send you detailed directions on how and where to park your car once your booking is confirmed. Local Taxis are easily available from Kirpu Mod. Hagit also has a list of good, friendly and knowledgeable drivers and can share the same with you if needed. It is quite easy to organise a cab come and pick you up and drop you at the villa.
