The villages all lie a little up or down the hill from the road head, and within the villages there is no vehicular access but the well maintained walkways mean it is easily managed on foot. Although donkeys can be arranged by advance request, hopping around the bridle paths is the best way to soak up the village atmosphere.
Foreign exchange bureaus are hard to find outside Delhi, so it is worth exchanging your currency there before heading north. ATMs are available in most towns along the route from Delhi. Bageshwar is the last major town before reaching the villages so it is advisable to withdraw sufficient funds here for your stay.
Groceries and supplies
There are a few basic grocery supply stores in the villages. Guests are advised to bring any personal medication and toiletries (most general things are available in Bageshwar) to last the duration of the trip.
Telecommunication and internet
Telephone connectivity can be very sporadic and, apart from the state owned BSNL, few other networks work. Bageshwar is the last point for internet connectivity. A bit inconvenient but on the other hand, it is all part of the village experience - authentic and pristine! In case of emergency, guests can make telephone calls through the homestay's cellphone.
The closest medical centre to the villages is located in Kapkot, on the road back to Bageshwar town. There is a hospital in Bageshwar.
