The space
Jyoti Niwas is located in the picturesque Kangra Valley of Himachal Pradesh. The home-stay consists of three bedrooms, a living room, dining room and a out-house kitchen. It is an ideal place for people looking for an escape from city life and still wanting privacy on their holiday. When people rent out the house, not only do they get to stay in a heritage house (built in the 1920's), they can even enjoy the large open lawns to themselves! There is a large front porch, where guests can simply look into the greenery, hear bird songs and essentially forget about there hectic city lives for a while.
Guests have the option of using the kitchen to prepare their own meals or opt to have someone prepare their meals (on prior notice). Either way, we ensure only the freshest vegetables and produce for their meals, some of which are taken from our own garden.

There is a lot to see around the area. The influence of Budhism can be seen in numerous places. People can visit the Tashijong and Bir monastary's and even do a short course in the Bir Deer Park center for Buddhist studies. Besides this, the famous Baijnath temple is located just 5 kms from Jyoti Niwas. There is a pottery center at Andretta run by the famous potter ..... You could go try your hand at pottery and pick up some attractive earthen wear. Mcloedganj (upper Dharamsala is located 50 kms from us. You can easily leave for a long day trip and visit His Holiness the Dalai Lama's temple there and eat some scrumptuous clay oven pizzas!

The best experience we have on offer for our guests is a choice of camping spots and mountain trails. The Dhauladhar range flanks the valley and provide some breathtaking outdoor activities. One can choose between several treks, ranging from the easy to difficult. There are three passes that connect the Kangra valley to the adjoining Chamba Valley. We highly recommend you experience walking these ancient trails used by Gaddi sheperds (nomadic herders). If you are feeling particularly adventurous, one of the worlds best paragliding site is located at Billing, 30 Km from the guest house.
