Mountain Studio is a beautiful Uttarakhand homestay that is taken care of by Nitin Semwal. Located in the Chamoli district, syncing to the rhythm of the neighborhood, the house blends in with its rugged earthy look, while having a rustically rich ambiance inside, suiting the needs of an urban nomad. The site cannot be accessed through a vehicle, and one has to walk (read as mild trek!) for about 25 minutes to reach – but the added incentive to make this walk are the Apple trees, Hazelnut trees, and Plum trees which make the walk totally worth it! The setting in which the homestay sits is quiet and peaceful – ideal for solo travelers to halt before their expedition, for those who want to recharge their creative energy, or couples who want a getaway from their metropolitan lives. It is a humble hut, which suffices all needs – with two beds, a study table, and a small pantry
Mountain Studio is located near Auli. The homestay has 1 room which gives basic amenities and can accommodate a maximum of 2 travelers.
Organic Veg/Non-Veg Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner are available at the homestay.
An ideal day for a traveler staying in the homestay would be waking up to a magnificent view of the sun rising from behind the mountains while sipping hot ginger tea. As the porch overlooks the pathway to Joshimath, it is a pleasant sight to see local children huddled together going to school. Have a warm and homely lunch, in the afternoon, over a conversation with the locals, giving you an opportunity to understand better the life in mountains. Before the sun begins to set, wander in the village, and as all houses are spread out without any fences or boundary walls, take this opportunity to make some new friends! As the day comes to an end, enjoy a moment of peace with yourself, watching the sunset. It is said that some sounds are tranquilizing in nature – and the property sits in the perfect location to experience that. The homestay has a stream passing right across the path connecting it, and the guests enjoy their stay with a backdrop of the soothing sound of moving water, throughout the day. One can hear the very faint noise of traffic, from the town that lies downhill, keeping the guest sub-consciously connected to the world outside the homestay!
