Approach Advise

Prakriti Aalay is intentionally kept a car/vehicle free boutique eco property to maintain its natural habitat, to enhance health of guests by providing a pollution free environment and to respect guest privacy from the nuisance of honking/lighting/music of walk in guest and their vehicles. We have dedicated car parking area for our In-house guests with 24 hours cctv surveillance at the main road, just opposite to the resort. Guests need to trek/climb down around 50 meters from the main road/parking area to reach the picturesque foot bridge, which connects straight to the property. We emphasize that any guest with any physical disability, age, weight or any other reason, who can not climb down/up these 50 meters, they need to reconsider their booking with us. We are really very sorry that we are exhibiting partiality to access; but in order to keep the natural ambiance intact, we are taking this hard call to keep this resort as car free.Stay assured, in case of emergency, we have our 4*4 vehicle to reach the resort and transport to the nearest hospital on priority.
