Idyliic Haven, Gaunap Village
Gaunap is a charming Kumaoni village nestled in the midst of rhododendron and pine forests of Binsar Wildlife Sanctuary in the Uttarakhand Himalayas, India. The Bora family would be pleased to host you. Accommodation includes basic but comfortable rooms in a typical Kumaoni home and with the added luxury of attached western-style bathrooms (yes, it’s a luxury in these regions!).
Gaunap village is only 3 km from the nearest road-head but light-years away from the “developed world”! It is home to just nine families. It is also home to scores of species of birds. It’s indeed a bird-watcher’s paradise.

The stunning sunrises, and starlit skies on a clear night are sights to behold!
