Rajesh Mukhyan, after completion of his studies, went back to his village in the interiors of Himachal Pradesh. Although he grew ambivalent about the country life, he never grew ambivalent about its lovely settings of woods, orchards, lake and the snow-covered mountains. Inspired by the enchantments of nature, he started a small venture, The Wilderness at Narkanda, way back in 1989. Rajesh’s vision and intimacy with the natural settings in the mountains through his project, felicitated learning of how to live among the simplicities of nature that he found extremely fulfilling. All this while in the hospitality sector, Rajesh found the true meaning of work and leisure. The passion of it all made him look out for newer places and open similar offbeat hideouts to share with travelers. When not busy looking after his customers, Rajesh is a keen explorer to unknown destinations and loves his stints in landscaping and horticulture.
