An Eco Friendly Serene Stay in a Mud House. An opportunity to connect with yourself. 
Our Mud cottage are meticulously constructed in the traditional way. The place is perfect for escaping the mad chaos of everyday life. With a great view of the lush-green mountains, dense Deodar forests, nice accommodation and good home-cooked food on chulha - the place is great for a day off the grid.
Well organized place with activities on offer like indoor games, bonfire are organized on request. We can also help you get tents in case you want to stay in the forest which is totally safe.
For food, we offer only special authentic Himachali cuisine which is cooked on a chulha (hearth). It is like a buffet/thali with limited options in menu unlike any typical restaurant. Most of the food items are from the organic farm. Non-veg food is not provided. 
It’s a very simple and ordinary place and you should not expect any sort of luxury.
Mud house is 8 km from Zostel. 6 km plain road till Panchpula and 2 Km Trek up till Mud House. One can either trek 8 km or can go by taxi till Panchpula which costs Rs.300/-. From Panchpula to Mud house there is no other option but to trek. From the road we start our hike to the Mud House with our guide.

What you will do.
  • Meet the team at our base, Zostel Dalhousie where you will be equipped with all the current updates & instructions.. We will start the trek from here towards Panchpula via Gandhi Chowk which is a straight simple route. It will take around 90 minutes to reach there. Coming back we will have lunch at Mud House. People will then have an option to either stay back at this unique Mud house or head back for Zostel.
