Amidst a blessed landscape is The Earth House – made completely of bamboo, mud and slate stone designed by architects in love with the traditional style, completely in sync with nature and a pretty sight to behold. Come over to spend a weekend, a week, or even a month. We promise you’ll start to belong. A quick walk down the hillside from the village are wide open fields, with a glacier-fed stream – the Awa Khud – flowing alongside brings you to this rustic and charming homestay.
