Keeping this thing in mind The Terraces introduce “Beyond The Terraces”,

The reason behind introducing “Beyond The Terraces” is to make tourist meet local people, experience the culture and feel the Experience of Campaign, home stay, adventure activities.

People of Kanatal

Kanatal region was originally settled by Kols, an aboriginal people of the Austro- Asiatic physical type who were later joined by Indo-Aryan Khas/Khasastribes that arrived from the northwest by the Vedic period.

However, in the Middle Ages Saka Indo Sycthians swept and settled in these hills, giving them the richness of their culture and traditions. The ruler of Kumaon nearby region was called Sakaditya 'Lord of Sakas', thereby attesting claims of Sakas settling in the Himalayas.


The culture of the present Garhwal is an amalgamation of influences from the indigenous population coupled with traditions superimposed by various immigrants, especially the Khas-Aryans, who settled in the region. And thus due to this the myths, dialects, languages, folk literature, festivals, fairs and forms of artistic expression, arts form the basis and the general essence of the character that Garhwali people possess. Culture and tradition of Garhwal is a little similar to that of the neighbouring regions of Himachal and Kumaun.



We offer tourist to choose from Forest Campsites. We have 5 campsites set in beautiful forest locations across the Kanatal, so you are sure to find your perfect pitch!

Camping gives you magical experiences; you can just sit back and take in nature. Looking at the birds, listen to their singing, go hiking, camping and jogging and running, walking along the rivers, playing games and sometimes being alone with the great outdoors. It's a special feeling which Beyond Terraces offers you.

Home stay & Village walk

Home Stay is a great way to get a feel for the culture you're visiting but if you want to understand more about the daily lives of the local people, then there is no substitute for spending a few days as a home stay guest. Of course, this style of travel isn't for everyone... Conditions can be basic -home is often a simple wooden construction with mats on the floor to sleep on, cold-water showers and no air- conditioning... but if you're up for an adventure and come with an open-mind, you'll soon find minor discomforts are far out-weighed by the benefits of this unique experience. You'll also quickly discover that home stays are two-way cultural exchange as your hosts are likely to be as interested in your culture as you are in theirs...

Don't forget to bring some pictures of home and prepared to arrive as a guest but to leave as a friend.

Village Walk experience, also gives you an opportunity to get up and close to the Himalayas, without having to do any arduous trekking.
