About the Hosts
Uma and Vijay More moved back to Vijay’s ancestral home in 2012. As with most young farmers here, Vijay was sent to relatives in Bombay to be schooled and educated. He graduated and eventually set up his own printing press business there. His wife Uma is also from Bombay where they met in university and were later married. They craved the peaceful environment of their village amidst the dramatic Sahyadari mountains and undertook the tortuous bus journey to return home once every few weeks. This continued until Uma had an idea. Why not convert the village house they owned in the picturesque rural location into a business? They brought local villagers together and along with their own intimate knowledge of the surroundings set up Sakha Niwas - an agro tourism center true to its name and provide the urban folks a real rural experience. Today if 'Trip Advisor' reviews are any thing to go by, they successfully transformed Sakha niwas into to the No:1 stay option in Tapola.
