A 10 cottage homestay sits calmly in the hills of Garhwal, Uttarakhand. The kitchen staff prepares a simple and authentic meal with ingredients that are locally produced in the farmlands around. Often you will hear the bells of the grazing goats and cows, while you sit by the huge windows of your room that open up to an infinite view of the Himalayan mountains. There is no electricity to charge your gadgets so you can happily bid a goodbye to technology. A solar lamp will come your way in the night, while the mornings are an early start with the first ray of bright sunshine. This is a typical day in THE GOAT VILLAGE.

For hikers, there is nothing more rejuvenating than an offbeat trek. And without any exceptions team StreetTrotter earlier this month indulged in a perfect vacation that led them to the famous Nagtibba trek. In collaboration with The Goat Village, a green village curated in the hills of Garhwal – two of our bloggers hiked up to the highest point of Nagtibba, bringing you back their experience in the form of this photo journey.
