YogMatra EcoStay is a 50-year-old Himalayan Mudhouse, which was built traditionally using stones & woods with mud coating inside. In 2023 the abandoned house was carefully restored and renovated by the YogMatra-Team, now welcome guests from all around the world. Located at an altitude of 2100 meters in Danikhet village of Urgam Valley, it provides an 360-degree panoramic view over the mighty Himalayas. From the balcony, the Brahma Kamal and Dronagiri Peaks are clearly visible. Staying here is a peaceful and authentic pahadi village experience. The house provides 3 private rooms, a 4-bed shared room and a community workspace. A kitchen room has been attached to the old mudhouse, where the team prepares fresh and local foods on a daily basis. Nestled in the middle of raw Himalayan nature, the EcoStay is the ideal place for those who enjoy yoga & meditation, hiking & trekking as well as exploring nature with its diverse wildlife.
