Overview

Sonaugi, a place that is blessed with a stunning location. Built in typical and traditional Himachali style that includes the use of a lot of wood and stones, our stay is amidst Deodar trees and Orchard. The place is accessible throughout the year and is classically described as a home from where many gentle directions goad you into walking to nowhere in particular. A destination very close to Manali yet far away, Sonaugi is blessed with unbelievable scenic beauty and pleasant walks. It is ideal for travelers who don't want to rush things up, who would like to live easy a few days amidst their rushed-or-unrushed lives. Holidays here are meant to languish, recharge, rethink, re-align, meditate, chill, hang-out, long conversations with like-minded travelers, long walks and you will come back rejuvenated.

Note from the host :
Mr Vivek Sharma : This is the place where I plan to retire and till then you are welcome to be the guest at my place. A few years from now, I will personally welcome you. A lot of thought has gone on to the making of this place but I am sure you will like old style "Dhuna" the best. This is the place where you can sit around the big fireplace and have riveting conversations with your co-travelers. The rooms have not been provided with the German bukharis (wooden stove) in the room that ensures that you can stay in a T-shirt and shorts even when it is snowing outside. I assure you that it does not get more comfortable than this on a chilly day. This is a 365-day "place to be in" but personally I feel that winters are much better than summers, of course relatively speaking, as it has crisp sun, lovely days, great visibility and less / no haze. This is a place for all those of you who prefer solitude over chaotic "touristy" destinations.
