The Forktail villa is built in the local Kangra Style of architecture. At the villa we have tried to incorporate the Permaculture philosophy in all areas of construction as best as we could. The house has been built with mud, stone, slate and bamboo. We have used old traditional methods of construction and everything was made by local artisans from the village of Gamru. Infact building multi-storey mud houses is almost a dying art and even finding skilled people to build is very hard.

Forktail villa built in the local Kangra Style of architecture. At the villa we have tried to incorporate the Permaculture philosophy in all areas of construction as best as we could. The house has been built with mud, stone, slate and bamboo. The idea was to create a building where very little building material had to be got from the outside to reduce the carbon foot print as much as possible.


The house is close to the village of Gamru in Dharamshala. Kotwali Bazar which is the main market of Dharamshala is 1 KM away. Even though we are so close to Dharamshala the villa is nicely tucked away from all the crowds and noise.

Both the garden and backyard have spectacular views of the snow-capped Dhaulahars, there are small village shops, a large market, malls, cinema hall, restaurants etc all within walking distance of the house. You can take the short cut walk to Mcleodganj or Bhagsu Nag from Gamru, it about 30 min to an hour on foot. If walking is not your thing then you can get a cab and it is a 10 min drive up the hill. The villa offers you an interesting mix of urban and rural life and also a lot of wilderness. This leaves you with a lot of options to choose from.


The house is fully furnished and includes a main room, 2 fire places, two bedrooms, kitchen, laundry, store room and a veranda. Apart from antique furniture and heritage curios.


The large garden surrounding the house with all the fruit and flower trees is a frequent haunt for the birds. you will see loads of russet sparrows, Sibias, Rose Finches, Magpies, Bulbuls, barbets, fly catches, Redstarts, etc. You will also see lots of Himalyan Griffons, Lammergeier’s and kites trying to catch a thermal above the house during the day.


During your stay here you can choose to either self cater meals or the co-host can help arrange a wholesome meal for you at an extra charge. We also have tie ups with a few restaurants in town who deliver food to the villa. The kitchen is fully equipped for your convenience with a Gas stove, toaster, pots and pans, crockery, and cutlery. For your convenience, I will also ensure that the kitchen is stocked with a few days worth of basic supplies such as tea, milk, sugar, salt, basic spices and oil.

If you wish to cook, you can shop for groceries and other supplies in Dharamshala which is very close. Specialty food and drink such as wine, premium liquor, cheese, dried fruit and nuts, packaged foods, spices, imported items, coffee etc are easily available in the well-stocked market of Dharamshala and Mcleodganj. All basic groceries are available close to the house itself.

If you are using the kitchen then cleaning up after use will be your responsibility but if you want us to manage that then you can chat with the Hagit and she can have this arranged at a small extra fee.

ผู้เข้าพักใช้อะไรได้บ้าง

When you rent the villa, you will have compete access to the house and all amenities in it - giving you complete privacy and freedom. However, please do be mindful that this is a lived-in house and the host's personal belongings and effects - such as books, CDs, curios, artifacts etc might be around. I request you to treat all belongings with care and caution as many of the items in the house are irreplaceable and of heritage and sentimental value.

During your stay, should you need any help or suggestions, I will be a phone call or email away. Also Hagit our co-host lives on site and will be available for any help that you might need.

การสื่อสารกับผู้เข้าพัก

Hagit my co host will personally meet you upon your arrival and show you around the house. She also lives on the property and will be available during times of the day to help you around. Hagit will also be able to help you with any requests such as breakfast, lunch, dinner, laundry, organising a bonfire and so on. Please do note that these add-ons are available at an extra cost, which you can directly pay to the co-host.

If you wish to cook your own meals and use the kitchen then we have a lot of utensils available with a functional gas stove and you can choose to use all of this. Please clean up the kitchen after use or if you need help then you can chat with Hagit who can organise the cleaning at a small fee. You can choose to buy rations etc from the well stocked market of Dharamshala either when you arrive or you can also send us message when you book and we can figure out the logistics of this then.

Also we have delivery tie ups with a few restaurants of Dharamshala so if you want to order from outside Hagit can share various menu's and phone numbers.

สิ่งอื่นที่ควรรู้

(1.) If you need help with getting here from Gaggal airport/ Dharamshala bus station/ Pathankot railway station or other gateways into the region, we will be happy to arrange a taxi to pick you up and bring you here. From the road-head nearest to the villa, porters are available to carry your luggage. However, please do ensure that you tell us your needs before you arrive so that we can plan things well in advance.

(2.) While we are sure you will love your stay in these magical surroundings, please be aware that the villa is located not super very far from a forest area and a large stream. For your safety, wandering into the forest after dark may not be such a great idea, making big fires, playing loud music, causing disturbance and inconveniencing neighbours - are a big no-no.

(3.) While I have taken every effort to make the villa warm, welcoming, and comfortable, it is by no means a hotel or resort. It is a family home in the truest sense - so, while the house is completely self-contained, I will unfortunately not be able to offer hotel-like facilities such as room service, food and drink on demand, or daily cleaning and turn down. The co-host can accommodate most reasonable requests, with adequate prior notice. The villa will be cleaned and bed and bath linen will be changed once every three days.

(4.) The villa is a live house and has a large garden around it - so, "creepy crawlies", rather, bugs and insects, are an integral part of the eco-system here. If you spot them inside the house or out in the garden, please do not be alarmed. Virtually none of them or harmful or poisonous. Please do not attempt to kill or squash them and request the host for help. Also the house has a lot of bird nests (mostly sparrows) please make sure not to disturb or touch any of them.

(5.) Phone signal here is very good and most networks work well here.

(6.) We have free internet access, the speed is usually good on most days but then you also get days when it crawls or on storm days the link has a tendency of going down. We request you to use it responsibly and not use it for streaming and large downloads.

(7.) The kitchen is fully equipped we also have refrigerator, lots of pots and pans for cooking. We also have a small bar counter adjoining the kitchen and you can get your own drinks and use the bar glasses and ice.

(8.) Turn off lights and appliances when not in use.

(9.) The drinking water comes from a nearby mountain spring. and we have a RO filter installed in the kitchen, Dharamshala has a water shortage problem so we request you to be sparse with both hot and cold water. But if you prefer bottled water, it can be arranged at an extra price.

(10.) If you need your clothes laundered, you could inform the host who wil be able to help you. Infact there is a laundry close by and you can also choose to do it on your own as well. The village has a good laundry and clothes are typically returned within two days. Or you can choose to use the washing machine in the laundry room but again you might have to use the machine on the “Express-15” mode as most other modes are very high on water consumption.

(11.) If you need a guide to trek up to Triund or go on other day or multi day walks and treks, go paragliding then we will be happy to help you organise it. In fact, if you wish to go trekking, camping, flying in the region, we guys are fully qualified and certified to help you plan an end-to-end trip.

Dear Hagit and Kaushal, We loved our 3-night stay in Forktail Villa. The house is beautifully restored, well appointed with all necessary amenities, extremely clean, and it has a wonderfully peaceful vibe along with great views. Hagit was a wonderful host. She was kind and gracious, and she took the time to listen to and respond to our questions. We loved the time we spent in the house! We could not ask for more. I'd heartily recommend this place to like-minded travellers. Thank you, Prakhar

Fortail villa was a beautiful holiday in itself. Honestly, the online photos don't do justice to what an amazing place this was. Hagit was the perfect host. It was easy to communicate with her about everything. She helped us fimilarize with all the places around. We have had a few Airbnb experiences earlier but this one was by far the best. Thanks Hagit.

Kushal's home stay is a experience in itself. I have been to many home stays in India and away.... but this one is class . Me and my wife stayed there for a weekend and thoroughly enjoyed the stay, kushal and his co host hagit have taken great care of the place ... it's such a beautiful blend of class, culture, simplicity, and very echo friendly. Hagit needs a special mention here she is very caring a fantastic host , made our stay so very comfortable ,she was always available whenever we needed her... god bless you hagit....... I can go on and on on the merits to sum up I can just say that anyone visiting Dharamsala this is the only place I would ever recommend

Beautiful home! And very helpful and warm hosts. For 2 of us it was bigger than we needed but super lovely with many different types of indoor and outdoor spaces. It was nice being out of the busy-ness of McLeod Ganj and was about 200 rupee taxi up to town or alternatively really interesting walk to town along the river. Loved it and will hope to come back some day! Thanks Hagit and Kaushal

High expectations are seldom surpassed. Forktail Villa, I'm happy to report, proved to be an exception. The villa stands true to the given description and it being away from the hustle bustle of Mcleodganj, made for a memorable stay for us. Haggit, the co-host, is a template of what a great host should be. Highly recommended, if you're headed towards the hills.

hello I am Mountain guide. I live in Manali. I am also the founder and owner of Above14000ft a camping, trekking, climbing, cycling, skiing and paragliding company based in Manali. I have operated small group custom trips all over Himachal, Ladakh and Uttarakhand for the last 19 years. I also pursue all the above activities also for personal pleasure :)

My wife Meera is currently on a break from her work to spend her full time with our 1.5 yr old daughter Mirka. She is also an awesome cook. The other girls in my life are Maggiee and Biki (my doggies :)). We spend most of our time in Manali but are usually in Dharamshala in winters.

We are both Travel bums and love to go to new places, experience new cultures and meet new people.

One of my favourite quotes is by Mark Twain :

"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbour. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover."
