About the Vihaan Valley Cottage

Located in Kangra Valley, our cottage is in the midst of a sprawling mango orchard and looked over by a towering, snow-capped, Dhauladhar skyline. Equipped with all modern amenities, a fully equipped and functional kitchen , a patio and garden.The single room independent cottage offers a quiet, relaxed, and refreshing stay for those who prefer a calm holiday / workcation. The studio has a big hall which has a bed on one side and work desk and dining table on the other side , the kitchen and washroom are connected to the building. Located at a convenient distance from the air-port (Dharamshala). A local market at walking distance for most basic needs.

You would need to climb stairs to reach your rooms and dining space.  There will be harmless insects and flies in and around the property especially during the monsoon season due to the flora. Being in a natural environment all these insects etc. are a part of the ecosystem here.

  • The property is pet friendly, the property is not fenced so you the pet owner has to be responsible for their pet.
  • The cottage is part of our lager property, On one side below the cottage is a small school my family runs and on the other side at some distance is oue house. Nothing in front of the cottage except trees and garden
  • During the school hours you are not allowed to smoke or drink in the open areas, since there could be children around. post school hours you are free to do what you wish.

One question on the mind of the visitors is what is the best time to visit the region.

March to July – Summer begins by the mid of April with just the right amount of nip in the air, for travelers keen on seeing snow, snow is accessible on various hikes and drives right up to the end of June. As the snow melts on the higher reaches it gives way to lush green meadows and a riot of colorful wildflowers.

July to september- The beginning of the south west monsoon opens the way to the Pangi valley, which is accessible only during these three months. This is also the season when the apple plucking is in full swing, traveler’s can get a glimpse of the apple plucking, packaging process.

October to December- The post monsoon is another beautiful time of the year to visit the area as the weather is stable and promises bright sunny days. The inhabitants begin preparing for the onset of winter, most of the trails and drives are accessible.
