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 Sandhya homestay is a beautiful place to stay. If you love peace and silence of hill station, the Sandhya homestay at Satkhol is a right choice for you. The stay has a single hut with 1 living room, 1 bed room, 1 kichen and washroom with all the basic amenities. The stay has cook for your anytime need ginger tea or dinner, but they only stay at sandhya till the evening. After that, in the whole ddarkness of night your loved one, silent trees and starry sky are the companion of your wonderful experience of life without digital entertainment. You can cook for your own taste, for this caretaker of the stay will provide you fresh vegetables. But if you dont have vegetarian apetite at all, then you need to struggle for non-veg, as like the other remote hill stations, the place also have less availability of chicken, but you can easily get the breakfast time boiled egg or Egg curray at dinner... The best thing of the stay is mesmerizing view of Himalayas, at footstep, there is dark eye soothing green Pine forest, and parallel to horizon, the snow capped ranges of himalayan peaks started. The major peaks which are easily visible from here are, Mt. Trishul, Mt. Nandadevi, Mt. Panchachuli etc. The outside landscape and architecture of the little hut will definitely attract you to do not leave the place, rather convince you to come another time... .”

“After looking at the tempting images of Ajayji's place at Nathuakhan for about a year, finally I had been there in early June this year. We're two. Let me admit, for about thirty five years I have been visiting places in the Himalayas, but nowhere did I find such a charming place to stay and feel the hills so intimately throughout the day. And if one adds the proximity of the host and his family while there, which I had the fortune to experience, no words would suffice to tell the story. I must say about Dipak too, the local young caretaker of the homestay, he is a real friend while one is there. Now why I'm singling out this place from my earlier experiences? Reasons are many. The serene ambiance and natural beauty of the place, the leisurely walks on different directions with abundance of trees of apricot, peach, plum, and walnuts everywhere - the crooning birds all around to give company, and the small dotting huts on the gradient hills to stare on - are all there no doubt - but so are they in more or less many other places. The thing is, Ajay has allowed the Himalaya to enter into his little nook which is well perched on the ridge with fully visible glass walls in his rooms allowing uninterrupted view of the majestic hills even when one remains in the rooms. But before I end, let me add that words are too insufficient to paint what is displayed in the entire canvas of Nathuakhan.”
