“Le séjour chez l'habitant à Isoti m'a permis de mieux comprendre la culture de Garhwal. A été terrassé par l'hospitalité des hôtes qui ont pris la peine de rendre mon séjour inoubliable, me livrant des tonnes de délicieux plats locaux et me divertissant. Le logement est simple mais joliment aménagé et propre. Le point culminant du voyage a été la randonnée à Ameli ka Danda - le point culminant de la région et le printemps éternel - Patla Pani.”

They searched and searched & finally found a place and built their dream cottage.
