It’s the abode Gods & Goddesses. The pure air, serene environ amidst verdant surroundings rejuvenate the mind, the body and the soul. The Luxecafe becomes a leisure guide for those who are ready to rough it out across the Himalayan villages and slopes by the day but want the luxuries of home at night. Himalaica of Daves, the eight houses of Shakti Ladakh, Shakti Kumaon and, Dalar Homestay & Mary Budden Estate in the Binsar wildlife sanctuary are among the select luxe homestays which provide an experience as exhilarating as a trek through the hilly terrain. The mountain of cash needed for spending a few nights at these places seems like a molehill when measured against the joy the stay brings.
