Located within Pong reservoir bird sanctuary, 150 m from Beas river, with Jwala ji, Chintpurni, and Baglamukhi temples just 25 to 35 min away; the cottage is an ideal resting place for pilgrims the year around and birders during winter months.

Heritage villages Pragpur and Garli are 6 & 8 km respectively. Hill stations Dharamshala & Palampur are both 2-hr drive.

Jamble Bassi & Nagrota Surian, excellent viewing spots for winter migratory birds, are 30-min & 1-hr respectively.

The space
You will be hosted by a US returned IAF veteran, a former fighter pilot, and his lady wife.

The cottage is an ideal resting place for pilgrims visiting Jawala Ji, Chintpurni, and Baglamukhi; an idyllic weekend escape for those who keep a hectic schedule, and a long stay getaway for birders, hikers, and nature lovers.

The cottage, with unique architecture and color scheme, is located on a sprawling 2 kanal plot. Perched majestically on high ground, the cottage has a commanding and uninterrupted (picture post card!) view of Pong reservoir, Beas river and Dehra town, with the Dhauladhar mountain range looming in the backdrop.

Vayu Kutir is ideal for those who wish to visit multiple destinations in Kangra district such as Dharamshala, Palampur, Andretta, Kangra, Nagrota Surian, Baijnath. Our guests can make day trips to the above destinations and return to the comfort and warm hospitality of Vayu Kutir at night, thus avoiding the hassles of booking hotel accommodation at multiple destinations.

At Vayu Kutir, we don't just host our guests, we pamper them. We don't just welcome them into our home, we welcome them into our hearts. We do so in so many different ways...we prefer that you read the reviews by our past guests to get an idea.

Guest access
Entire first floor and roof-top. Entire surrounding area which has vegetable gardens, fruit plantations, and a hen coop.

Other things to note
There is a Sanskrit university nearby with an eye popping modern campus.

The heritage village of Garli nearby is your host's ancestral village.

Our guests have a well equipped independent kitchen, but we can provide home cooked meals at very reasonable additional charge. The meals are cooked using farm fresh, organic vegetables and eggs.

The apartment is sumptuously furnished with Godrej Interio furniture.

The cottage is at the edge of village Diyara on the outskirts of a forest. The nearest house is 100-m away. You will enjoy a lot of solitude, yet we will be always there to help.

There is an easy hiking trail through the surrounding jungle which starts from the cottage. A second hiking trail that starts from the cottage takes you along the banks of river Beas. In both cases you get to see a lot of birds.
