“Uttar Kashi's Best”
Reviewed 1 February 2014

This is Uttar Kashi's only facility that is listed in the Lonely Planet. You'll need a vehicle to get here from town. It's too long to walk from the bus stand. But the accommodations and hospitality are unparalleled in Uttar Kashi. The guest house overlooks the Ganga Valley. The owner/manager, Deependra is extremely thoughtful and helpful. He can organize some of the best trekking in the area. The restaurant, library and internet make this accommodation much more intimate and homey than any hotel.

Room Tip: Just ask Deependra what's available. He has many options.

Almost the only one remarkable place to stay in Uttarkashi. Rooms are nice and clean. We were very satisfied by fresh tasty vegetarian supper food, breakfast was more ordinary. Views are beautiful, location is very quit and peaceful. Be ready to spend some time for going to market if you need fruits.

Nestled on the side of a hill in Uttarkashi, you will find your home away from home at Monal. Deepender, the proprietor of Monal, prides himself on providing exemplary service to his guests. All of the staff members share this commitment and go out of their way to ensure that guests' needs are met. The rooms are very comfortable, well-appointed, and reasonably price. They even thought to put small flashlights on the keychains for those occasions when the power goes out. (The power goes out all throughout the valley with some regularity, but Monal has a generator, so you don't have to worry about this too much.) The guesthouse has a cozy sitting area with an extensive library and a computer with internet. Don't miss out on the opportunity to take a trek with Deepender; he grew up in the area and has a deep knowledge of and profound love for this part of the Himalayas. I arrived at Monal intending to stay 6 days and ended up staying for 12 days.

If you find yourself in Uttarkashi, I warmly recommend to stay at Monal. The place is very pleasant and clean. It is very clear that the owners poured their heart into the place, and the view is breath taking. The owner (Diggu) is very hospitable and has plenty of useful knowledge which he's always ready to share. The service is superb and the food, made in the best Indian cuisine style, doesn't fall short of the best restaurant I've ever been to.

After some ectic time on the roads of uttarakhand, it has been really pleasant to enjoy the hospitality of monal tourist home. My room was perfect (for remote india standard) and to fall asleep just with the noise of the river was magic. The food was very good, internet facilities available (a great plus) the view great, the service good. Nothing I could fault really. the right place to chill out.

Uttarkashi is one of those places that leave an indelible imprint on your memories lasting long after the actual event has been consigned to the footnotes of the past. Home to the famous Nehru Institute of Mountaineering, it is also the base for many day and longer treks that take you on stunning journeys around the verdurous loftiness of the mountains that surround the town.

When in Uttarkashi, Monal is quite possibly one of the best places to stay at. Lovingly run by a local man whose passion for the mountains will astonish you everytime you speak with him, it is his own home that he has extended into a tourist house which is why you would never feel too far away from home while at Monal. It is located slightly outside the town, but that wouldnt be a problem if you have a ride of your own or perhaps can arrange one by speaking to the owner. While here, do spend time talking to the host, he is very knowledgeable about the surrounding areas and also conducts day treks which are guaranteed to be a lot of fun.

What will strike you the most will be the astonishing cleanliness and spotlessness of the whole estalishment. When you have just come back from a gruelling trek, what you long for most is a clean bed, spotless linen and a fresh looking room, redolent of the pristine air of the Himalayas - this is exactly what you will get at Monal. Add a dash of home cooked food, conversations with a veritable rainbow of colourful personalities from various parts of the world and a glass of rum while hemmed in by grandeur of the mighty Himalayas and you have a heady concoction that will intoxicate and stimulate at the same time.

If there is a better property to stay at for this price in the whole of Uttarakhand, I would be very keen to know. Highly recommended.
