PROPERTY OVERVIEW:

The Lost Escape’ is a beautiful NotOnMap homestay in Jibhi. Enveloped in green folds of nature, on the banks of a river, it is a traditional Himachali mud house. With no other settlement in sight, guests get to escape the chaos of city life and truly enjoy the solitude of the hills. This is the best homestay in Jibhi for you to get lost at for a while.

This nature’s house is near Banjar, which is also known as the “Valley of God”. Although a well-known place among travellers in the area, it is still as untouched and magical as ever. The Lost Escape thus is the optimal bed and breakfast for a perfect getaway.


STAY:

The Lost Escape’ provides a comfortable and cosy stay to its guests. The lodge has 4 rooms: 2 independent rooms downstairs and a duplex above. Due to its traditional customization, it has two shared bathrooms, with the facility of hot water. To suit the modern tourists, there is also a provision of putting up three Swiss tents. There is an open seating area outside as well, where a bonfire can be lit. The dining area has been set up outside as well, for the enjoyment of the pleasant weather.


WHAT TO EAT:

A filling breakfast here would have options like paranthas, puri & sabzi, poha, bread omelette, etc. For lunch and dinner, locally grown vegetables will be served as well as part of the Himachali cuisine. If a special request is made in advance by the guests, such as non-vegetarian food, the hosts would arrange for it. The vegetables are all locally sourced and grown in the backyard.


EXPERIENCE:

  • Guests get to sleep to the sound of water and wake up to the sound of chirping birds.
  • Visitors could travel to Jalori pass, which is only 15 km from the cottage. From there, a day trek and camping expedition to Sereolsar Lake can also be undertaken.
  • Raghupur Fort is an interesting visit in the area too, as it gives a 360-degree view of the valley. Besides this, the picturesque town of Shojha is about 10 km from the cottage.
  • The Great Himalayan National Park is at a distance of 10 km from the guesthouse as well. The meadows of Shanghar can also be visited in Banjar. Chehni Kothi and Shringa Rishi temple are well-known spots in the vicinity too.
