My early exposure to our Holy scriptures gave birth to a dream…to build a place in the distant Himalayas, the abode of saints for centuries, a small dwelling place which will provide Man a place to seek relief from the pressures of urban living and make him contemplate on his existence, admire the oneness of this creation as elaborated in Vasudeva Kutumbakam and make him an individual with greater passion for the flora, the fauna, the sky, the earth, the water, in fact all the elements that create this universe.
The Himalayas is a place with magical properties. It elevates human beings to lofty heights. I have developed the Kyari Corbett as a home for anyone and everyone, where every visitor will in a short while endear himself to this place, soak himself in the nectar of joyful existence and go back to his home, revitalised, recharged and refreshed.
I hope my visitors will find Kyari Corbett to be a two way ladder – from the mundane to the laps of Mother Nature and on the path to discover Vasudeva Kutumbakam.

“About 125 years ago, a wandering farmer stumbled upon this piece of land. He found the view of the Himalayas to be excellent, the nearby stream and the jungle as a resource for firewood, food and water and the soil to be extremely fertile – it was just the right place to settle down. Next year, he harvested a bountiful crop. Thus he named it Kyari, a piece of fertile land for cultivation.
Soon, about a hundred families from his erstwhile village came to populate this place. Today, the Kyari is a vibrant village exists that blends the past with the present – visitors to Kyari Corbett are encouraged to tour the village, see the simple rural life style, appreciate the folk music and participate in activities like pottery, clay painting and others.
