Fagu Himachal Pradesh — A Misty Apple Village Where Homestays Are More Commercial Than Hotels
Fagu wasn’t an underwhelming experience due to its location. I didn’t enjoy my stay in Fagu because of the extremely commercial attitude of the homestays in Fagu Himachal Pradesh.
Like in many small villages of Himachal, a traveler has to stick to homestays in a tiny place like Fagu. And I love staying in Indian homestays (and abroad too). For most of my travel life, I have been more than happy to know a host family and understand their way of life. Sometimes staying in a homestay could imply you have to talk and smile when you want to write quietly in a little corner. But everything comes at a price, and well, families function in their peculiar way. Isn’t travel all about embracing the unknown?
So far so good. But in this 2450-meter high apple village Fagu, homestays function at a breakneck speed.
Let me take you through my Fagu journey as it happened.
