Dhami House

Homestay in Around Shimla

This peaceful retreat, around 30km northwest of Shimla, offers two comfortable rooms in a cosy hill-country home decked with antiques and heirlooms of the owners who come from royal princely-state lineages. There are lovely valley, hill- and forest-views, and your stay includes not just three home-cooked meals but also birdwatching walks led by an experienced naturalist.

Shimla–Manali buses pass within 5km: get off at 16th Mile junction ('Sola Mil'), where taxis are available. Or pay a cab direct from Shimla for around ₹1500.
