A Rustic Nest in the Mountains
Rumsu, Naggar, Himanchal Pradesh
A town that seems to have paused its reels in the ‘60s, Rumsu is an ode to the simpler times with its archaic vibe. People here still live in fragile wooden houses that appear to be almost made by hand for a fairy tale set. The food here is also just as simple, but manifold hearty and delicious. And as you can expect from a gravely offbeat village of Himachal Pradesh, Rumsu has pure & utterly charming views of the green Himalayas of the Kullu Valley. Our almost antediluvian and mostly wooden home in Rumsu sits on a small ridge, with green hills and the snow-capped Himalayas right across from it. The rooms here treat you with velvety beds and delectable views, private balconies and ample space to unwind. Come here for a simple, leisurely holiday focused at spending time with your loved ones or self and artistic exploration, for there’s little to do here but a lot to take in.
