Village Holidays and Homestays

Ranikhet and its surroundings are well known for its beautiful weather and pristine natural surroundings. The British established the town with beautiful bungalows, churches and well planned cantonment. After independence many bungalows have been converted into heritage hotels where the upmarket luxuries and 'rich' food are plentifully available.

Those who want to experience how the villagers live, eat home cooked food, walk around in fields and pastures, visit the local deities or hang out near the streams are welcome to Majkhali. There are several options for accommodation: The village homes are generally located in a cluster and one such cluster is offering home stays. The family of the homeowner stays in the house and they have spared one room in each house. The toilets are not attached to the room but are close to the house: Indian type supplied with water from buckets. The premises are very clean and pleasant with stone courtyards, cowshed and trees. They are about 7-10 minutes of slightly uphill walk from the main road. For those who wish to stay right on road; options could be explored. Safe parking for visitors to all the houses is arranged on the roadside.

Another option of accommodation is the houses/cottages made by some of the residents of Delhi as their summer houses. These houses are fairly modern and have attached toilets with WCs and hot and cold running water. It is possible to drive the car all the way to these houses with ample parking space.

Accommodation within the Centre: There is a main building which houses the hall and there is a cottage. There is a guest room with attached toilet and a balcony at the same level as the hall.  The cottage has two floors both with attached toilet, kitchnette and a sitting area. For those who want to stay for long and cook their own food, utensils and other support could be provided Yet another option for stay is pitching in tents. There is ample space to do so and for those who are keen arrangements could be made to experience outdoor living.


Whether you are interested in a short session, workshop, longer course, or just enjoying the serenity of village life, accommodations can be arranged to fit your needs. If interested, we can also explore the possibilities of volunteering either individually or in a group.
