Christmas Cheer at Geeli Mitti

4 days of immersion into life at Geeli Mitti Farms… join us deep within the hilly villages of Nainital with forests, gurgling streams and chirping birds all around. After all, we are located inside the Naina Devi Bird Sanctuary.
So if you’ve always wanted to visit Geeli Mitti and experience living a natural life in our sustainable mud structures, come on over.
Or perhaps you need something that you can’t describe yet. Then just take a break for these four days (24th – 27th Dec.’21) and come meet beautiful like-minded souls, sit against the fire every evening together as we listen to music, chat, read, sing karaoke, cook momos, dance, bake bread, watch a movie — who knows how the evenings will unfold… but the magic is guaranteed.
Chilly winters against a warm fire with warm soups, comforting food and engrossing stories is what life is meant to be about.

Meanwhile the days are for soaking in the sun while we learn about
– building with mud,
– about making our existing homes healthier and more energy efficient,
– guided tour of homes built using techniques like earthbag, cob, adobe, wattle and daub, stone, bamboo and more
– experience making gorgeous jewellery with seeds,
– explore beautiful hikes and trails, go bird-watching…

Comfortable large bamboo and mud loft aka Adda, with dorm style sleeping and super comfy cosy bedding. Everyone loves the Adda 🙂
Indian and Western style common toilets with hot water showers.
Meals are vegetarian and special, cooked with love.
Note : There are also 3 private mud cottages and 2 tents available for booking on twin sharing basis. We retain the right to allocate booking as deemed suitable.
Temperature is expected to be in the range of 15°C to 1°C. Warm layers work best so pack accordingly. Perhaps a thermal inner, full sleeves T-shirt/Shirt, lined pyjamas, a warm jacket/sweater, muffler, socks, gloves. Sandals/slippers that you can slip-on easily even with your socks on. This is important since shoes are left outside the living areas.
A pair of comfortable walking/hiking shoes for trails.
  • More Information:
    P.S. - We have super friendly dogs on site so incase you don't like dogs or are super scared, this might not be the right place.
    We will be happy to help with the travel logistics and bus/taxi bookings post registration so don't worry about that 🙂
    Best to plan for arrival by 8am on 24th Dec. or else the previous evening on 23rd Dec. by 4pm. It will not be possible to come to the Farm post dusk so if it gets late on 23rd Dec., you will need to stay overnight at Nainital and then come to Geeli Mitti the next day morning.
