We are living and maintaining an old beautiful house and field located atop of a remote village called Kalgha, 32kms from Bhuntar in Kullu district of Himachal Pradesh. It lies adjacent to the luscious gurgling blue waters of the Parvati river, where you can enjoy the tranquility and peace offered by nature.
Gypsy House works as a hostel for pilgrims trekking to Kheerganga,as a shelter and workspace for artists, explorers, peace lovers...
An artsy place located above all the apple orchards below, we regard ourselves as a part of the family of a folk spread in the universe sharing knowledge, wisdom and love.
We have vast open fields of alpine beauty with breathtaking views. You can enjoy the quietness and watch the slow pace of daily existence here.
Gypsy House is the perfect place to break your journey to any of the popular treks from Kalgha as it is situated on a good height at the very end of the village where the trek starts.
What we offer:
We offer 7 shared/private bedrooms with a common shared bathroom and toilet. Common kitchen is for everyone's access, breakfast is not included in the rates provided. Lunch/dinner are provided on request at moderate rates. There's an outside fireplace which is commonly used when it's not rainy, but don't you worry we also have an in-house tandoor where you can have great conversation and unlimited chai :)
On a serious note: Our place is not for people who are seeking luxury and service, but for people who want peace and some escape from an activity packed holiday with activities at their own rhythm. Then this is the perfect getaway for you guys.
All kinds of skills and ideas are welcome to be brought along, to be able to share and make learning sessions for others as well.
Photographers can contribute to our collection of beautiful images around the place ( sorry, we are dilettants)
We see our space more as a community platform than a normal hotel.
Kalgha, one among the trio with Tulga and Pulga.
A tiny village with its off-beaten tourist trail, away from the hustle and bustle of village life and known for it's solitudinous atmosphere.
The speciality of this place lies in the amazing trekking routes to various places like Kheerganga, Bhun Bhuni, Pin Parvati. etc.
We are surrounded by vast open fields, apple trees and pine trees.
From the house you will be able to spot the local village life, the sheep and a herd of cows all led by the shepherd.
The people around are all very friendly and helpful.
Things you can do:
• Feel free to roam around and explore every nook and corner of our place.
• Watch the agricultural works of the season, maybe learn how it's done.
• Follow the process of hemp oil, local ghee..etc.
• Feed the cow, sheep (no plastics)
• Help in collecting plastic waste as we are practicing plastic waste management.
