HPPWD rest house is a guest house like structure; built by the government in order to accommodate the stay of its officials traveling to that region. Also known as “Circuit House” or “Forest rest house”; these rest houses are available at even some of the remotest locations of Himachal Pradesh. I have myself stayed at quite a few of these and to be very honest; have always found a HPPWD rest house better than any other private hotel in that region. A common theory about government run entities in our country is that it will be in ruins and not maintained at all. Surprisingly, stay at a HPPWD rest house and this theory will prove wrong. All these circuit houses are quite clean, in excellent condition with all basic facilities and at a stunning location with amazing views. If you are planning a trip towards Spiti, Ladakh or traveling to any other part of Himachal for that matter; staying at a PWD circuit house will be a great choice in terms of accommodation. In this article, I will provide details on how you can book your stay at a HPPWD rest house; along with some other details like availability of facilities, food and how much it is going to cost you.
