Experience living near Shimla
Good consideration for someone who wants to experience farm to table experience in a serene quiet place yet very close to the hustle bustle of Shimla. The hosts are very warm & really helpful. The place is very neat & clean furnished with all the basic amenities which one would require. I would rate it as value for money, a must go place to get healthy & relaxed.

Lovely view of the valley
The Buransh Homestay at Kewalag is very very neat, clean and immaculately appointed. The rooms are spacious and have a lovely view of the valley. Ideal for a cultural getaway, strolling around, close to Shimla but yet far away. Delicious local food if you ask the host/hostess. The entire family gets involved in making the stay enjoyable.
Strongly recommended to simply unwind, experience the local culture or walk

Mrs. Smita Sahay

Buransh Village Homestay
A chance search on the internet by a friend resulted in our spending the days immediately following Diwali 2020 in this beautiful, understated, warm and cosy homestay run by Virender and Monica. It is a beautiful farm tucked away in the hillside, accessible by a country road, just 15 kms from Shimla, but one that gives you the feeling of being in a remote, serene place. Even before our trip began, Virender kept up a constant communication, easing our arrival to his home. The place was sparkling clean, the bedclothes were spotless white (these are the little things that are important to me), the bathroom fitted with high quality fittings, and our room was warmed by an oil radiator.

The first day that we arrived I was feeling a bit queasy after the twists and turns of the mountain roads, and Virender immediately offered assistance, that included special light food. However, after a good snooze on the lovely and cosy bed and pillows, I was good to go, and arrived at the dining table for a superb pahadi meal. This was a great decision, as in all our 6 days and 5 nights there, not once was a dish repeated. We were offered the choicest of Himachali cuisine, from the “kult” dal, the special saag, vadis, sesame and mint chutneys etc to the amazing “siddoo”: local bread made from fermented and steamed flour stuffed with poppy seeds, served with piping hot “ghee” and gravy!! The desserts were also unique and scrumptious! From the wheat-milk sweet to the pumpkin ka meetha, everything was just the right proportion and extremely tasty. Monica and her mother in law spared no effort in spoiling us with this fare.

Incidentally, my birthday happened to fall during our stay there, and the hosts matched our friends’ efforts to put up a celebration that I will cherish for years to come. We didn’t just eat and sleep at the #buranshvillagehomestay, but also embarked on walks on “pagdandis” (small pathways in the mountains), suggested by Virender, everyday taking a new route, and enjoyed the blissful mix of clear skies, clean air and zero people…. that’s right! Not a soul in sight except the four of us, trudging along, spotting exotic Himalayan birds and marvelling at the delightful jungle plants, flowers and berries. I would recommend this great experience to everyone. Virender and Monica team up to be just the right hosts, always there for assistance should you need it, but never imposing. We went as tourists, but came away feeling we had stayed with close friends/ relatives.

Home away from home. Serene location 15 km from Shimla. Awesome hosts. Scrupulously clean property. Authentic cuisine.

Our holiday to Buransh Village Homestay for a whole week was unique. It was the best vacation that we have ever had in recent times. The location of Buransh at Village Kewalag about 15 km from Shimla provided us with the perfect getaway from the polluted climes of NCR. I must place on record that the place was scrupulously clean, neat and aesthetically furnished and totally to our taste. The hosts Virender and Monika were truly the epitome of hospitality believing in the ancient Indian custom to the core of “Atithi devo bhava” meaning guest is equivalent to God. The views from the balcony were really breathtakingly serene.

We enjoyed exploring the flora on the hillsides and the fauna in the form of various species of birds flocking their surrounding orchards. The hosts served us authentic organic, home grown food right from their farm to the table directly. Monika is a chef par excellence having prepared authentic Himachali cuisine. The hosts were always available and took great pains to explain each and every thing pertaining to cuisine, flora and fauna of their region. We even interacted with their family comprising parents and children and we felt all the time that we were their house guests.

I strongly recommend travellers to visit Buransh Village Homestay for an enjoyable experience of a tranquil holiday yet filled with all the luxuries and modern amenities.

Buransh an excellent place to stay and spend our valuable time. Very much neat clean homestay and superb location. One who wants peace, pure air and pleasant stay must reach here. Than you to Mr.Virender for his excellent hospitality, providing wonderful delicious homemade food. Most of the food raw materials are from their farm and I should say one of tye best taste I had ever. We can enjoy scenic view of sun rise, roaming around farm and garden areas. A very nice and safe place to stay.
