What our guests have to say

  • What our guests have to say

    “Magical Stay coupled with Divine Experience”, We stayed at Van Serai for two nights and three days and what we experienced was truly divine. As soon as we took the road to Jageshwar from Aartola, the climate changed dramatically. The deodar trees, gurgling Dudh Ganga river and freshness in the air made us feel that we have entered a different world altogether.
