Wayfarer has been involved with Munsiyari ever since 1997. Initially we commenced operations in this remote place with just a few Swiss tents. Later we graduated to log huts, and since May 2012 we offer ethnic twin sharing cottages .
Wayfarer Himalaya Retreat – Munsiyari is a resort that is designed with a difference.In order to retain the basic facets of simplicity and local ambience of this remote mountain settlement the resort offers visitors an experience of being part of the local cultural setting without compromising on essential modern comforts. Located next to the Tribal Heritage Museum, and surrounded by deep greenery with a stream flowing past,Wayfarer Himalaya Retreat is built to cater to the tastes of all nature lovers.
Currently a cluster of six well furnished double rooms are operational. These are tastefully designed with local materials in order to cater to the needs of enlightened travelers.All guest rooms have attached baths with hot and cold shower, modern toilets with geysers and a dressing area. The restaurant and kitchen are manned by our staff who are trained to serve with a smile. A complex of four additional rooms, a separate lounge and reception are anticipated to be developed shortly.
Barring the period from July to September, when the monsoon rains cause damage to the access roads, Munsiyari can be visited from October until June every year.
Autumn : The post monsoon season (October to December ) is a time of settled weather with clear views of the mountains. Day time temperatures will still be quite warm, upto 20 degrees C during the middle of the day, however at night the temperatures will occasionally drop to around 5 degrees C.
Winter : The period from January to March is when Munsiyari experiences snowfall. For those who can bear the cold and wish to view a completely snow laden Panchulli range, this could be a good time to visit Munsiyari.
Spring and Summer : From April onwards the climate warms up, passes in the higher regions open up and Munsiyari witnesses large numbers of tourists. The weather is generally settled barring the occasional pre monsoon rainfall that can occur at any time. Day time temperatures can rise to the mid 20s even at higher altitudes.
Monsoon : For the period from July to September it is advisable to avoid Munsiyari .
