Plan a tour to Himachal Pradesh’s Andretta, a place of mountains and tranquility located in the famed Kangra valley’s artists colony. Think of a traditional Himachali mud house, restored to perfection and enveloped by bamboo forests. A place that combines rejuvenation and quintessential mountain goodness.

Jaadooghar Andretta is a mud cottage which comes with a total of 4 bedrooms and has 2 very snug and vibrant living rooms, accompanied by a cosy fireplace, with a touch of the artistic to reflect all the flavours of the artists’ colony it resides in. The mud cottage has a roomy balcony on the first floor which makes for a lovely spot to have your morning coffee and evening glass of wine while taking in the breathtaking views of the Dhauladhar mountain range.

With a lot of veggies and herbs organically grown on the estate, the hosts strive to bring a farm-to-table experience for the guests. The property has a catered kitchen which is managed by a dedicated staff. Laze around in the property gardens, find your own nooks and corners to relax in, do some yoga and meditation on the property’s yoga deck or take a dip in the heated swimming pool. 

Jaadooghar Recommends: Andretta is probably Himachal’s best kept secret, known as an artists’ paradise. This place is anything but another ordinary Himalayan village. It has historically been a melting point of theatre, art and pottery enthusiasts. You must experience visiting the museums, galleries & pottery studios while you’re here., &


Swimming Pool & Steam Room

A heated swimming pool in the cool Himachali weather is bound to transport you to another world of tranquillity. Enjoy a splash and a cool down at the adjoining Steam Room, offering the perfect relaxation for your body muscles after a long day’s hike in the hills or a means to rejuvenate your senses from the dullness and monotony of city life. Please note that the usage of the Steam Room is chargeable at property, albeit for a nominal price.

Yoga Retreat

With a dedicated space for yoga and meditation, this property’s ‘yogashala’ is what the yogi in you dreams of. While you’re out in the mountains, spend some time with yourself practicing yoga and indulging in meditation as and when the heart desires. The property is also home to many professionally organised yoga retreats combining techniques of tantra, shamanic breathwork, karma yoga amidst others.

Picnic At Tea Hill Estate

A little further afield, on the outskirts of Palampur is a Tea Estate, where your hosts can arrange a tour for you. There you can observe the entire process of tea growing, and the picking and manufacturing process, from plant to cup. They can also set up a picnic for you at the estate where you can enjoy a meal out in the open with panoramic mountain views and open skies. Charges for organising this tour shall be applicable and payable at the property directly.

Pottery Sessions At Andretta Pottery

We can arrange pottery sessions for you at the Andretta Pottery, where those who make a bowl, cup, or other ceramic object they'd like to keep, can have them glazed, fired and posted home, at a later date! This is a paid experience payable directly at the property. 

Jaadooghar Recommends: The Andretta Artist Village is famous for its Norah's Centre for Arts (Norah Richards was the founder of the artists’ village during the British reign), Andretta Pottery and Craft Society (these places also sell earthenware to Fab India!). It is highly recommended that while you’re here, you take a trip to Norah's Mud House and Sir Sobha Singh Art Gallery (Sobha Singh was the famous Punjabi artist who was the exclusive painter of the images of all the Sikh Gurus). There is a nominal charge for entry to these art galleries and you can also grab some prints for your art collection! 

Hikes and Walks

The joy of living in Himachal is best experienced when you trek along the many known and unknown trails, collecting pine cones and breathing in the freshness of the mountain air. The property is in close proximity to several such hill hikes, forest walking trails, waterfalls etc. You can walk through the artists’ village and collect some precious memories on the way. The hosts will be more than happy to guide you to all the local hotspots.
