Budget Stay in Shoja & Jibhi – No Society Homestay and Cafe
Few Days Back, I visited again in Tirthan Valley with my friend Vansh. This time, I selected another route and explored the Jibhi, Shoja and Jalori Pass. In November, I found heavy snow and live snowfall in the Jalori Pass and enjoyed the colors of Autumn in Banjar, Shoja and Jibhi.
Have you ever stayed in a Local’s Homestay of Himachal Pradesh? Try it today… I am sure; you would love it. I usually stayed in hotels and resorts while my traveling but after tried my stay in a homestay. I loved it too much. It was the stay, in which we lived a local life of Himachali people with them. I always like the people who live in mountains because of their helpful nature.
On this trip to the Tirthan Valley, We stayed in a homestay named – “No Society Homestay & Café”. They provided me the excellent services; also, the hosts were also friendly in nature. So today, in this article I will tell you about my experience of staying in the No Society Homestay and Café and give you a little review about this property.
Shoja is a village of Tirthan Valley located in between Jibhi and Jalori Pass. From here, we can enjoy the scenic panoromic view of Dhauladhar Range.

First, I catch the bus to Aut (Moving towards Manali) from Delhi and then from Aut I came Banjar by another bus. Banjar is the main town of Tirthan Valley. You can get bus easily to Banjar from Mandi, Aut or Kullu. From Banjar, I changed the bus and catch the bus to Shoja ( You can also reach here by catching bus to Rampur from Banjar). This homestay is located at 3 km before the village Shoja, I get down on the way. I found the location of homestay on google and reached here easily after the journey of 14 hours from Delhi.

Let’s Talk About the No Society Homestay-
No Society Homestay is located in a very scenic location near Shoja. They give us the budget stay in front of the mesmerizing view of Snow-capped mountains of Dhauladhar Range. The rooms were comfortable with attached washroom. I enjoyed the bonfire party at night time under the star trails in the lawn area of this homestay.
The rooms in this homestay are fantastic. The beds are very comfortable. The rooms can easily accommodate 3 people. The view from the room is amazing. I came here in the month of November, and it got a little cold at night.
As I already said that they have attached washroom. They provide 24*7 hot and cold water services in the restroom. I enjoyed my bath under the hot water shower in that freezing cold of Shoja. There were some basic toiletries as well in the washroom.
After the location, the food is the second thing; we liked most in this homestay. They provided me the organic food. We tasted the tradional dish as well there. I tasted here the famous dish of district Kullu – Siddu, which stuffed with poppy seeds. The homemade food was superbly delicious.
View From The Room-
The view of the lush greenery and snow-capped Mountains from the room or balcony is mesmerizing. I visited there at evening time of a rainy day, but the next day, when I woke up, I felt like I am in heaven. The view was more fantastic than I expected.
