You’ll be welcomed to our pleasant abode with a garden and a sprawling front yard, the ideal spaces for spending leisure time reading, sipping tea, or stargazing. On one end lies a glimmering stone-and-wood cottage that serves as the hang-out area and teems with the games of billiards and table tennis. Embracing the breezes and sunshine are the rooms, that come with personal balconies so that you always have a piece of the mountainous landscape to yourself. Adding to the comfort of fluffy beds and utterly warm blankets are the home-cooked meals here, which are delicious, filling, and everything you’d love to have up North. The house is hosted by the Sood family, who have been a part of Himachal Pradesh since forever.
A view of the serene Aravalli Hills, a pool to chill in, and tantalizing Rajasthani food all commingle to make Zostel Homes Pushkar the flavourful delight it is. With tents for private rooms, utterly rural milieus made up of fields and faraway hills, and a rustic vibe, the luxury retreat lies at the outskirts of Pushkar city, away from the bustle and still conveniently accessible. A pilgrimage for some, a hippie land for others, Pushkar is an odd and interesting amalgamation of all things travellers and residents want it to be. Known for its peaceful ghats, hike-able hills, and niche market, Pushkar city hails with a breezy vibe. While it gets filled up to the brim during the Pushkar Camel Fair and one week of Holi, the town certainly has a charm that’ll make you stay for longer than you’d expect to whenever you pay it a visit.

Looking out at a valley blooming with pines, green fields, and small dots for houses, our abode in Kotkhai reflects the lavish Himachali lifestyle from the olden times. Here, the balconies glimmer under the Sun and the glass windows open up to the hills galore. The smell of fresh home-cooked meals takes up the air along with the chuckles of kids who host you with the most loving heart. With a basketball court in the front yard, apple orchards all around, and a sunrise worth waking up early for, this home has many little wonders in store for you. Nestled in Padara, a small town just 13km from Kotkhai, the house is easy to reach by road. It sits hidden from the popular tourist destination of Shimla, which is 65km away.
Remember that dream house from your childhood drawings? The one in the mountains, by the river, with the sun shining brightly on it? That’s Zostel Homes Pah Nala for you.

And when the vibrant sun goes down, indulge in a delicious home-cooked meal. End the day on a perfect note with bonfire as you have your slice of stargazing.
Overlooking a valley bursting with Deodars, Zostel Homes Theog is a woodhouse on a quaint little ridge in Bhalech. A perfect holiday here would be filled with soaking in the serenity of the wilderness, amusing yourself with a game of pool or reading a book at leisure, only to end the day on a magical note with a cosy bonfire in the veranda. The mornings come with mesmerising sunrises, whereas the sun sets to make way for a sky full of stars. Brimming with flower and fruit orchards, Theog is generous in offering panoramic views of the Himalayas. Often overshadowed by popular places like Shimla and Kufri, it is a small treasure with significant wonders.
Imagine this. You’re sitting by the window in a bucolic room made of a century-old wood, watching as the sun pierces through the sky. Under it, a string of green hills is complemented with a river that gushes down swiftly, merely a few feet away. That’s life here at ZostelX Dharamshala in Passu, a small village lodged on the periphery of Dharamshala. The house is made sustainably with the help of bamboos, clay tiles and wood, slates from local slate mines and a natural water filtering system. Conveniently located away from the tourist crowds and yet near to the scenic attractions, this home offers a balanced getaway between solitude and experiences. The common area is more like a wooden cabin with glass windows, offering mesmerizing views of the greenery. With litchi orchards and an in-house polytunnel in the backyard, a feet-dipping pool, and a garden springing with peculiar plants and flowers, the home is nothing short of organic magic. A small garden behind the house with all the fruit and flower bearing trees is a frequent haunt for birds such as the Russet sparrows, Sibias, Rose Finches, Magpies, Bulbuls, Asian barbets, Tyrant flycatchers, Redstarts and many more. You may also spot Himalayan Griffons, Lammergeiers and Kites catching warmth on the terrace in the cold winters.
Seated amidst lush apple orchards, Zostel Homes Cheog is every bit magical. The village teems with the traditional lifestyle of Himachal, giving itself a distinct flavour altogether. With this getaway, enjoy blissful landscapes and savour local delicacies prepared by the host as you take a rejuvenating break from the hullabaloo of the city life.
An outlandish bloom of Pink Olga blossoms sprawls out on its fields just after the rains, winters come with snowfall and an enchanting silence, and summers here can be described in two words: festive and green. This is Rakchham, a small town slightly North of Chitkul and very much at the heart of the Sangla Valley of Himachal Pradesh. In this very hamlet, endowed with gorgeous sunsets, sits Zostel Homes Rakchham, a dot of brown and teal in the middle of endless greenery. A curvy mud path cuts through it and leads to the steps of the front yard, which lays adorned with apple trees and flamboyant flowers. The rooms here are submerged in nature, enjoying all the majestic sunrises, sunsets, furtive rainbows, and misty mountains. The food here is hot and the nights pleasantly breezy, making for two traits of a very dreamy holiday.
The sun shines brightly on the wheat fields, desert mountains, and mud houses, making their browns glow gold with the dawn. Time here moves slowly as kids make their way to the only school in the town, grannies milk the many cows, and the monks continue with their everyday chores in the world’s oldest monastery. This is life here in Tabo, a miniscule village in the Spiti district of Himachal Pradesh. Its lakes and waterfalls freeze in the winters, whereas summers bring the entire landscape to life. And in both, there is equal beauty, meant to be savoured separately. Zostel Homes Tabo is a quaint little home just off the highway, holding apricots in its front yard and views of the gorgeous rainbow mountains from its balconies and windows.
Turning into nothing less than the fantastical town of Narnia in winters and adorning a rich palette of dusty browns in summers, Kibber takes you back in time with its tranquillity and traditional lifestyle. The days here ring with Tibetan prayer chants and the chuckles of the gleeful villagers, whereas the nights bring thousands of stars into play up above. In the heart of this small town lies Zostel Homes Kibber, with its windows and front yard faced to the clustered toy-like white and brown mud houses of the hamlet. The town further looks at the dark brown mountains, and they, in turn, look up at shinier, snow-clad ones. Away from the bustle of Kaza and still close enough to surreal adventures like those of visiting the prominent landmarks or spotting Snow Leopards, Kibber is an experience in itself.
