100 years old house became a source of income, know how

Sonia Mishra, Rudraprayag / Ukhimath: ‘There is neither employment nor basic facilities in the mountains of Uttarakhand, due to which we have migrated. Although you will find many people who say this, but apart from these there are some people who have also found employment in these mountains and are earning good profits from these houses by converting their old barren ancestral houses into homestays. This is not only increasing their income, but along with it they are also making the tourists feel at home even while staying away from their homes.

Dr. Kailash Pushpwan, a resident of Kimana village just 2 km from Ukhimath block of Rudraprayag district of Uttarakhand, is setting an example in himself by creating employment in the mountains.

Dr. Kailash Pushpwan says that in the coming days, I have full faith that the hopes of reverse migration through home stay will definitely get wings and those who have left their ancestral houses alone and left the villages due to employment or any other reason, they will definitely Will return back.
