Welcome to the Tara Guest House and Hotel at Jageshwar

Jageshwar is an important temple town located in the Uttaranchal Himalayan  region of India.

Stay in this hotel in a peaceful location with views over the temples. Here you can stay in a local family's guest house and experience authentic Kumaon hospitality and cuisine. A great hotel with an amazing, highly recommended family welcome.

Mahesh and his family can provide for all your needs during your visit. His brother Bhuwan can transport you all around India in his 10 seat Tavera taxi. Mahesh can offer a range of other services from booking your train ticket, editing your videos in HD or helping you attend to your spiritual needs at the temple. At the guest house in the evening, you may even be lucky enough to have live local folk music around an outdoor fire.

The area around Jageshwar offers amazing views of the snow-capped Himalayan range around Nanda Devi, and great trekking within the forested foothills. All payments are made by yourself direct to local people on arrival/departure, ensuring money remains in the locality, rather than with external travel agencies.
