About our home

'Nirvana' is set in the famous Doon Valley in the foothills of the mighty Himalayan Range! The property overlooks a river, with a fabulous view of the Himalayan mountain range! We are set in a fruit orchard(lychees,mango and avocados among others) and surrounded by forest and nature. We have 4 cottages,all with en suite bathrooms and 2 of the cottages sleep 4(pullout beds)! They are all close to each other yet private as each cottage has its own verandah and private garden. A bird watcher’s paradise and there are lovely walks in nature! The stream below can be heard from the bedrooms! Very secure as it is gated!
River rafting on the Ganges and the holy cities of Rishikesh and Hardwar are just an hour away. Mussoorie in the Himalayas is just 45 minutes by car. 'Ananda in the Himalayas' -one of the best spas in the world(Conde Nast Traveller) is just over an hour away by car!
