Earth house is perfect combination of relaxation and with some adventurous activities to do, like paragliding at world's second largest site, as Bir Biling is just an hour away from here.
Two ecologically built Earth Houses house a total of 6 rooms. The construction ensures these are comfortable inside even in colder weather, and there’s adequate space for a small family. Each house has its own sitout overlooking some stunning scenery, and you can always ask for breakfast under a tree!
To get to the cottages you will have to park your vehicle on the road an hike down about 20 meters elevation followed by a walk of about 350 meters. The way to get there itself is unique and challenging. There are two cottages on the property with a small temple, a irrigation channel going through and a stream flowing by. Each cottage has 3 bedrooms and attached baths. The main cottage is slightly bigger and it houses the kitchen and living room. The dining area is in a covered porch attached to each cottage. The walls are rustic (literally plastered with blades of grass incorporated). The roof is made up of thin black stone tiles.
You can spend time with your feet in the ice cold stream reading books and in general doing nothing. The camp fire and the conversations around it in this place set in ultimate serenity just can't be expressed in words.
If you are fond of trying different cuisines then you will get the chance to try some amazing Himachali food. Can you ever imagine that there is pickle of bamboo, yes, bamboo, and you will get to taste it here.
If you are looking to stay around natural surroundings away from the hustle bustle of metropolitan cities, this is the place you would be looking to go. With Dauladhar range in the background, earth house Palampur offers the best get away connecting you with nature.
