What people say?

Customers reviews

I came across Ecohunters though word of mouth suggestion. This suggestion came across a time when I was a week away from my proposed trip along with my family members. I am very much thankful to Ecohunters for providing an immediate support on trip planning along with getting me and my family a wonderful vacation

RASHI KHAN​

I would like to thank you for presenting this property to me and fellow motorcyclists, it was a delight to have stayed amidst an apple orchard wherein one could just flick an arm and grab a fresh apple from the branch. Rooms, Food, Facilities and the view from there was just awesome. I would definitely recommend EcoHunters’ name in my circle.​

The road climbs up from the river bank to Nako and Mulling Nala. The road descends down to the banks of Spiti river and continues to meander till we reach the village of Maney. It is a great stopover for acclimatization. We rest for the night at a homestay in Maney.
