Lonely Planet review
About 12km from Chamba in the tranquil Saal Valley, this friendly village guesthouse is a wonderfully peaceful place to unwind amid the plum and apricot orchards. The excellent home-cooked meals are recommended (₹500 half-board per person) and there are even cooking courses, and stafff can lead you on some fine walks in the area, including around the surrounding organic farm. Staff at sister company Mani Manesh Travels in Chamba will arrange transfers, either by taxi (₹300) or public bus (₹15) to Chaminoo village, from where it's a steep 20-minute walk to the resort. Do yourself a favour and budget an extra day here.
