“Real freedom lies in wildness, not in civilization.” – Charles Lindbergh
Given a choice to stretch your arms and float in the air, will you say a NO? Or allowing the wind to gently kiss your cheeks, play with your hair, will you refrain from it? Pahadi House gives you a lifetime experience to “be yourself”. Away from the “busy” and “hectic” life schedule, spending moments in the lap of mother nature, you instantly connect with your soul. You wake up to witness God’s most beautiful creation all around by simply peeking out from the window of your room.
Yes. It all happens here.
Making of Pahadi House – An Eco Friendly farm stay
In June 2013, when Kedarnath floods devastated all that came in its way, a thriving rafting resort at Rishikesh was also devoured by the relentless flood waves. The owners, two young guys hailing from Uttarakhand, had put all they had into the rafting business. The floods may have devastated their business; however, their unflinching will to succeed against all the odds grew even stronger. Together, they came up with the idea of Pahadi House – an eco-friendly farmstay that has since become a torch-bearer for promoting yoga, adventure tourism, rural tourism, eco tourism, etc in Uttarakhand.
Pahadi house is located amidst Pine forest  at a secluded hill meadow. The property offers magnificent and breathtaking views of mountains, forests, clouds, star lit night sky. Pahadi house is located off road 1 km from Danda chali village. Vehicles can reach upto 500 meters  via offroad. 10 minutes of hiking through pine forest from parking will make you reach Pahadi house.

It was an incredible experience, the breathtaking view of the himalayas, silence, peace, courtesy. Although many things seem to be missing at the beginning, you immediately realize that instead there is just everything you need to start one of the most unforgettable trips you can do. Times do not exist here … Shiva from far controls and protects everything… sometimes he seems to be able to feel it . No word can be enough. Thanks for all. –

The best staff you'll get anywhere. Extremely hospitable and took great care of us. My only feedback is - the approach road is difficult to find, have more sign boards and probably appoint someone from the staff to come to the main road to get guests.

Stayed here for a weekend. Just loved the place. The views of pine n grasslands make u feel like u r undoing ur city life for the time u r there. The lovely in house dog Monty is a darling. The kids kept playing with him till he had had enough of it ! Do not expect super luxury but the staff is very sincere in whatever they do. Also, the food is droolingly awesome, ended up earing almost double of what I usually eat on normal days. Reaching there can be tricky.The google maps direction ia a bit messed up. Ask for proper directions from the person coordinating with you for the stay , and you shall reach without problems. The walk from the parking to the actual place of stay feels like one of those retro bollywood movies shot in the hills, the song "suhana safar aur ye mausam hasin" kept playing in my mind during the walk. Definitely going there again , and this time with my dog to make her meet Monty.
