At ek chidiya cottage one thing can be said without doubt that your stay will not go unpleasant. Sitting on the front porch and watching pine-grown mountains and having hot tea is a rejuvenating experience. It is a little away from the small market of nathuakhan , and therefore you get to breathe truly pure oxygen. The place is perfect for trekking, with stone made pathways of locals and goat trails. Trekking down to the river in the morning and back up is the perfect exercise when you don’t have the gym. And it’s heaven for stargazers like me. At night, the sky is filled with bright and dull stars, not leaving a patch of darkness. And if you have a telescope, you would wait eagerly for the night. During my entire stay there, I didn’t miss my TV at all, and I think that’s amazing!
