Apart from all the facilities, we also have a nice and caring family who look after the fact that hygiene and cleanliness is maintained at the accommodation at all times, and the guests stay at ease. Buses run from the main city at regular intervals during the day. During evenings and late nights, it is better to have your own conveyance or a prior booking with a cabbie. A small word of caution, since this is a house located in a small village, with some other families living close by, we expect guests to not disturb them, and maintain some decorum. At the same time, some music (not too piercing though), fun, and frolic never hurts anyone. Tourist License / Licencia de turismo N °: 445More

We were a group of friends who visited the home stay. I must say that the stay was very comfotable with good food. The cleanliness is worth a praise too. No commercialization nearby. We could walk round the jungle trails too.

About the neighbourhood
Our house is located in a village called Dhagogi. This village is a collection of just 4-5 houses. The village is just 4 kilometres from Mashobra (a famous spot on the outskirts of Shimla), and is surrounded by thick forest in the backdrop, and an open valley on the front.
Getting around
Recommend to have a car/cab at your disposal.
