Jungle House boutique homestay opens in Shimla

Offering sweeping views of the middle Himalayas combined with the royal luxury of the yesteryears, Jungle House – a one-of-its-kind boutique homestay – is all set to receive guests from August 15.  Perched on a sunlit spur at over 7700 ft on Jaklu Hill, Jungle House has an illustrious history that dates back to the 19th century. It was once the Shimla home of HH Princess Kusum of Bharatpur and has stood witness to the heydays of The Raj era, Independence and the birth of Himachal Pradesh.

With abundant natural beauty and calmness of the mountains, the estate offers two exquisite suites in a stone cottage that seamlessly combines contemporary style with colonial hill architectural design. The cottage has been meticulously renovated to preserve its original charm while providing an exceptional level of modern comfort, privacy and luxury. Set in lovingly tended gardens, the rooms come with unparalleled privacy and ease.
