Dalar Homestay

A picture perfect Homestay, Dalar Homestay  is located in one of the eleven villages in the Binsar WIldlife sanctuary at about 6,500 ft above the sea level. The spacious rooms offer a beautiful view of the Dalar ranges.

Typical village mud walls and the traditional craft of wall painting called aipan, grace the walls and though every point of comfort along with an ensuite bathroom is part of this home, one is transported into an authentic village experience.

A day trek into the village, exploring the village life and getting to know other villagers is an exciting experience of the stay. Kumaoni village cuisine and a chance to sit around a fire in the evening to the sound of a flute or a possible music recital by some villagers are some of the highlights of this homestay.

Tariff per night: INR 19,000
