Mriganka is a really good host, thank you to his wife, Rahul and all the staff members to make us feel at home. The place is beyond our expectations, beautiful view from the windows, clean and really confortable. We would have loved to stay more and will recommend 100%. Rahul took us trekking and it was a wonderful memory of ours. Food is excellent, feels really like home. If you have the opportunity to visit Uttarakhand, I would definitely advise you to stay at MettāDhura. You’ll definitely find quietness, peacefulness, nature and hospitality.
