Mr. & Mrs. Dhami
The Dhami family is a small Himalayan family that has lived in this part of India all their life. Mr Prakash Dhami had many ventures in life but one that was close to his heart was his family and where he lives. With the beautiful Himalayan mountains all around his home town, Chamba, he set out to build a home away from the hustle and bustle of the town to raise his family in a more peaceful way. He moved his family home on the side of a mountain and that's when he created Orchard Hut. A home away from home for any traveller that wants to experience the Himalayan village life. He started off small with just a 2 room house then created a multi room home that could enable him to open his home up to families from all over the world. And that is where it began....
