Hamta Foothills Cottage Architecture

Himachal Pradesh is rich in lumber, which is utilised as a construction material since it is robust and long-lasting. The finest wood – deodar – was used in the construction of the cottage, and the style of construction is ‘Kathkuni’ or ‘Kathkundi,’ which is peculiar to this region. Book family cottages Manali to make your trip memorable.

A mesh of interlocking horizontal deodar sleepers is generated by the building technique. Fillers such as rock and earth have been utilised, as well as some pounded soil. The absence of vertical members is a distinguishing feature. The architecture has a huge seismic reaction due to its intrinsic flexibility.
