Pahadi House’s Concept and its Motto

I can vouch that this name sounds catchy and enticing to all the Pahadis hailing from different regions and that’s what Pahadi house aims at doing, bringing all the hill folk and mountain lovers under the same roof and letting them connect to the hills. Not just this but the Pahadi house also aims at uplifting the hill folk by promoting village tourism in Kanatal, a small hill station close to Mussoorie.

It was a time when all the people lived with brotherhood but i don’t know what happened amid of decade that brotherhood has been abscond somewhere, we all of them are becoming selfish , Nobody care other’s . The people of Uttrakhand have left their ancestral house and shifting TO Cities but there are some people who are staying in villages and providing that kind of hospitality to our touristers and providing a prestigious name to our Uttrakhand. I wanna say thank to you guys who are doing good job or also want to say thanks to ROSE KANDA Org. (Jeevan Verma) for their work.
One of the biggst thank to my E-Uttrakhand team who is doing and excellence job and spreading the awareness about Uttrakhand (Myar Pahad).

Thanks & Regards
