We mean, just look at the pictures! The first thing that attracted us towards this beautiful mountain top lodge was its minimalistic interiors. The entire cottage is done in classic yet modern aesthetics which is fully built with recycled wood and pièce de résistance glass. There is also an outer patio that would be ideal if you would both like to go stargazing in the night, or better still - dine under the stars with a bottle of champagne in tow!

The cozy two bedroom cottage is replete with some dreamy Scandinavian light fixtures, minimal furniture and a fine art collection to satisfy all your artistic inclinations. And did we tell you that each window in the room opens to a spectacular view of the Himalayas, which might be snow capped if you plan to go during winters.
It even comes with a terrace garden which could be ideal for a ‘morning after’ coffee or even a midnight kiss under stars! And since you might get too cold in the outside, you could even run back to the cottage and warm yourself with the help of your very own Bukhari or fireplace.
