Farmstay in the Shimla Hills
Namaste and welcome to Himalayan Orchard.
The Orchard is a family-run farm in the apple belt region of the Indian Himalayas, as well as a secluded retreat for those who want to get away from it all and experience life in India off the beaten track.
Due to ongoing renovation work, we are more or less closed during 2015, and looking forward to welcoming guests in 2016.
Staying on a working hill farm, you will be able to enjoy the peace, tranquility and beauty of rural life in India, whether you want to read, write, paint, meditate, practice yoga, hike, stroll, see the local area, or just relax and absorb the surroundings.
This is one part of India where tourists are a real rarity, and you are treated as a guest, not a customer.
Our meals are freshly cooked using our own homegrown produce, and local recipes. If you'd like to, you will have the opportunity to join in, whether it's milking one of our cows, collecting eggs or preparing fruits or vegetables.
Your stay will contribute to the on-going project of sustaining and invigorating the rural hill community and economy, while respecting the local and global environment.
If you have any questions or are interested in staying with us then please use the Contact page
and we will get back to you very shortly.
With our very best wishes,
Michael & Devanshe
