It was the first time I was travelling alone so far- but the hosts made it feel like home! It was an amazing experience! The people, places, culture, lifestyle, breathtaking views, workshop- everything was worth the visit.

The work experience was also great! The positive natural aura adds up to anything you do there. Unfortunately, Prasanna couldn't be there with us the whole time, but with the neat planning done beforehand and the help of Treesh Sir and staff, everything went fine.

I definitely recommend the HSC to other travellers; trust me, its totally worth it :)

The experience was incredible! The place is overwhelming and the project we created together was very special and successful; I definitely would do it again. I'm very proud of the results and I'm already interested in developing art in more communities around the world.

The host was very nice and had everything under control, unfortunately she was gone during the project and that brought some misunderstandings in some activities. Getting there was very adventurous for me, specially being a foreigner, so I'll suggest to really clear up the best ways and timings for next travelers.

The resort was just the perfect place to unwind and relax with the breathtaking view of himalayas in beautiful place of Kausani. It just soaks you in and am sure once you are there you won't like to leave the place. Threeshji is a wonderful person. He helped me exploring and knowing about the places. He was really supportive and encouraging.
Taking a workshop in Kendriya Vidhyala school was also a great experience. Wish i had few more workshops which i could have conducted there. Prasanna also was always available on phone. Would be glad to meet you soon :-) Highly recommended !!!

About the host

At Kausani the mountains rise so dramatically as if to reach the heavens. In fact not just Kausani the entire Kumaon Hills have been known for their idyllic beauty with the huge mountains silhouetted against the sky. It offers the magic of the deep rhododendron forests and the majestic mountains. Amidst such beauty we have founded the Himalayan Study Centre and Retreat in Jauna village.Himalayan Study Centre is an ecosystem that provides ...
