Description

At 8000 feet, among the lofty mountains, overlooking a vast valley is the beautiful 65 years old cottage home of the Krishen family. Away from the hustle and bustle of a city, yet with all modern comforts. Situated on the ridge......one enjoys the beauty of the rising sun as well as the grandeur of the sun set.  It is on the Hindustan Tibet Road (NH22) – only 45 kms. ahead of Shimla, bypassing Sanjauli, Wildflower Hall, Kufri, Fagu and Theog- on way to Narkanda which is 15 km. ahead. The homestay is an ideal night stopover when going ahead to Sarahan, Sangla Valley, Kalpa, Kinnaur, Kaza and Tabo etc. It’s a true home away from home – since it’s managed by a family.

It's surrounded by Apple trees, lush green fields of Potatoes, Cauliflower, Peas, and Cabbage etc. A perfect place to enjoy breakfast under the umbrella and spend hours of leisure, sitting under the stars during dinner time. During full moon the valley offers an awesome view under the spell of moon light. It’s a true home away from home – since it’s managed by a family. Food is cooked and served on order. We have a children’s park for our young guests, a recreation room with Table Tennis Table, Chess, Carrom Board and many other indoor games. For the voracious readers we have a good collection of books......fiction to spirituality to autobiographies. There is a track for going on long quite walks around our house.

Matiana is basically a small village. The local people are basically Rajputs and worship Goddess Durga (Ma Maheshwari or Bhagvati). They are devout followers of the Goddess. Many believe that people from the upper part of Himachal are the natives while the rest are migrants.

Apple orchards stretch over the length and breadth of this small town on NH 22, between Shimla and Narkhanda in Himachal Pradesh. Perpetually pleasant weather, a strong connection with the Goddess Durga and businesses rooted in apple farms, makes this a verdant and relaxed place to visit.

A small town feel and easy pace of life makes Matiana an ideal base for travellers who wish to relax and explore the region away from the tourist crowds. Matiana has a number of things to offer for those who like to walk around and soak in the atmosphere.

Testimonial

We were guests at their homestay in September. It was beginning of our trip to Spiti. We reached later in night and it was drizzling. But the attention of Kishore was so great that he had stationed Shiva, his help, on the way leading to the property with torch lights and we felt so comfortable. As soon as we reached the rooms, we found them so clean and warm that pur entire days travel fatigue was gone. We stayed for 2 nights and everything was nice. Food was very delicious and we were taken good care of. Shamsheer Rana - Kathmandu
