Sandhya is a quaint village hut in the Himalayas. It was restored from an original structure that is believed to be more more than 60-70 years old. As a result, it has a unique charm about it- little quirks that give us a glimpse how local people lived here and their sensibilities. For example, the door heights are always very low- just above 4 ft- so do mind your heads when you enter! Sandhya offers a chance to experience life in an authentic mountain home.

The space
We are a fun family with two animals, 4 local villagers helping us on our farm and my daughter and I- and we would love to have you join the crew. My cottage is next door to Sandhya.

Where you’ll be

Satkhol, Uttarakhand, India

We are situated in a rural setting and are surrounded by forests and other homes in the village. Road access is about a 15 minute walk. It is ideal for quite time, walking in the countryside and hiking in the Mukhteshwar forest. There is a lovely NGO-Aarohi just around the corner. They have a shop with local products and a charming school for local children. Villages are very idyllic here so walking is the best pastime. Closest town Almora is about 50 minutes drive away. Mukhteshwar is 40 minutes drive. There are plenty of hiking and cycling options in the area.

A lawyer by training and a tree lover by passion, I live and work in rural Himalayas in Uttarakhand. I work closely with the mountain communities to help bring back their lost forests. I founded a social enterprise called Alaap in 2016 which focuses exclusively on social forestry in the mountains. Sandhya was my first home in the mountains and is an originally restored mountain hut. I wanted to share the joy of experiencing living the mountain way with all of you. We are planting a lot of trees around the hut. If you like to get your hands dirty planting then you'll have plenty of opportunity to do here. Do visit:)
