“We welcome you to our self created paradise in the hills of Garhwal where peace and beauty go hand in hand. Our cottage rooms are done up beautifully by local artisans and are lit up with kerosene lamps when the sun goes down, providing a truly out of the world experience. Come, gaze at a million stars by the moonlight or just laze and enjoy the delicious local cuisine we offer. We promise, it’ll be a holiday you’ll remember for years to come.”
~ Team, Goat Village.
The Goat Village, Nag Tibba is a traditionally curated and crafted haven in the hills of Garhwal. At around 7700ft, the cottages are cozy and beautifully done up by the local artisans. Only locally available material has been put to use keeping the spirit of our local partner’s mission from diluting. The site is the midpoint for a popular trek to Nag Tibba.
Within the farm stay premises, we have two common/dining areas and a kitchen that gets lit up on renewable solar energy during the night. Rest of the space doesn't have electricity and gets lit up on candles and kerosene lamps in the evenings. For extra comfort, we do provide solar lamps during the nights. Hot water can be availed in buckets from a common, renewable resource.
A total of 10 cottages and condominiums have been built keeping in mind the more than 1000 years old architectural technique called ‘Koti Banal’, which is indigenous to Garhwal Himalayas. The neat Garhwali cottages are best suited for the travellers wishing to experience the local way of life. These cottages are designed to cover the basics and provide for an unforgettable living experience. The location not only brings out the adventurer in you, but the warm comfort food served also ensures that we turn you into a food lover. The place can comfortably accommodate up to 45 people and is suitable for solo travelers, families, kids, pets and different age-group.
Meals at the village are a hearty affair. The villagers know how to make the guests happy! The village has a common dining area where meals are served. Local delicacies and specialties are the norm and we rely on our Garhwali kitchen staff to bring together some amazing local flavors. All the produce used for cooking purposes is sourced locally.
Eat the traditional indigenous stuff, milk the goats, read, get your hands dirty in the farming, go for some tranquil treks or simply do nothing and chill. Nag Tibba is a trekker’s delight. Though it is a relatively unknown trail near Mussoorie, it can easily be considered one of the best weekend treks that you can do out of Delhi. For those who want to walk in the forests, climb up to 10,000 feet, see snow clad mountains and camp under starry night skies, the Nag Tibba trek is just perfect

It is an initiative having multiple social dimensions. The Green People Organization has partnered with locales across the state and is managing them to create basic lifestyle experiences for visitors. Each cluster of these accommodation locations are engaged in Goat Farming and many other Agro practices to provide a better livelihood to the locals, and to give a firsthand experience to tourists in basics of Life Sciences.
The Green People, our partner, is a community that is working towards a conceptually new blend of Eco-Tourism, Agro-Tourism and Rural-Tourism. Their efforts are driven towards economic development of rural India by offering the insight into the impact of human beings on the environment and thus bridging the gap between rural and urban India. Their beliefs are rooted in reviving old traditions of farming and associated practices. We wish to make the land of the Gods the heaven it was. We together work towards letting the people of the hills stay and take up occupations that are gradually becoming redundant. Our desire is to promote development alongside ecologically responsible means.
Green People is a young organization run by spirited individuals who have come together for a common goal. Its Agenda is to bring significant environmental, conservation, social and economic benefits to all sectors of the society.
All the rooms are done up by local artisans and made up of locally available resources. The village has provided livelihood to the people of the village who mostly consider migrating to cities to do odd jobs and earn a living. Operating without electricity is a challenge that has been taken up successfully by the village and adds to its beauty. A starry night in the village is a memory many take back with them forever.
