India’s First Igloo Hotel is the coolest thing this winter
High up on the slopes of Manali, two winter-sport specialists have opened an India’s First Igloo Hotel.
Keylinga’s igloo is no ICEHOTEL, but a stay here is sure to give you bragging rights for life. You’ll be handed sleeping bags with extra fleece, hot water bottles and a thick foam mattress for your time in the ice shelter (though you’d still need to carry your woollens and thermals). The tariff covers all three meals and hot beverages; dinner will be served outside on a barbeque while you huddle around a bonfire.
Vikas Kumar and Tashi Dorje have built only two of such fully functional igloos so far; if they see high demand, they might even stretch it to five!
Make sure you visit soon—the igloo will cease to be after this month. Also, because of space issues, it can only be rented on a twin-sharing basis.
