Manaswal holds a cherished position in our hearts, being our ancestral village where our family lineage has thrived for over a millennium. Our profound connection to this village has spurred our active involvement in its growth, particularly in the revered area known as ‘Beet’ within Tehsil Garhshanker.

Drawing from our extensive 25-year tenure in the Hospitality industry, we have achieved notable success with the operation of Koti Resort in Himachal Pradesh. Alongside our journey, we have spearheaded innovative concepts such as ‘destination tourism’, ‘destination weddings’, ‘Indian wedding traditions’, and ‘family bonding’, attracting visitors from distant corners to revel in distinctive experiences at Gaj Retreat.

Encouraged by the resounding feedback from our esteemed guests, we ventured further by establishing an Adventure Tours division. This specialized endeavor is dedicated to curating tailored off-road expeditions in the remote and awe-inspiring terrains of Lahaul-Spiti and Ladakh. Our endeavors have led to numerous triumphant journeys, captivating adventurers seeking exhilarating experiences.
