We are situated in peaceful-welcoming village Laluri in lower Himalayas with amazing views, clean air, fresh spring water and nice neighbors. We have a mud house, mango trees and buffaloes. We live a simple life, work on the filed and chill with other villagers.
Pauri town is situation at the height of 1814 m. (approx. 5905 ft.) from sea level in Garhwal Himalayas. About 100 Kms from Rishikesh or Kotdwara, 4 hours drive by car from both the cities. Its 2 hours drive from Lansdown (hill station). Perfect place to unwind yourself from hectic city life. You can have a beautiful view of snow clad himalaya mountains and walk at nearby Pine forest. Fresh air, energising sunshine and water from local fountain recharges your energy and helps to check stress.
“Fantastic place in Pauri approx 200 meters from RTO office. Perfect place for a group of 5-6 or families. Well maintained cottage with neat and clean rooms. Kudos to host for making such wonderful arrangements. Surprisingly we also experienced snowfall on the last day of our stay. Big thanks to caretaker Gulab Singh who ensured our comfortable stay in such a cold weather.”

“I had an absolutely fabulous time in Isoti Village. I stayed for one week and was incredibly impressed with the people and their willingness to accept me as part of their family. I speak only the tiniest bit of Hindi, which I worried would create frustration, but the sometimes difficult communication quickly became a fun challenge for all of us. Hem Istwal was an excellent guide who is vastly knowledgeable regarding the history and surrounding terrain, and when he left to address other matters, the dynamic duo, Rajul & Tajul took over my daily adventures. I spent countless hours after lunch playing with the 3 grandchildren, devising many fun games that broke the language barrier. And each meal I would be fed hearty vegetarian curries, chapati, parantha, and fresh milk from the family's cows. It was very difficult to say goodbye and I am already scheming a return trip to Isoti. I heartily recommend a stay with this family if you are willing to take on the beautifully simple lifestyle and accommodations.”
