Transcend the times.
Expand your minds.
When you feel your soul taking flight
From the prison hold of the hustle.
When you discover your being
Searching for an escape—
Take a pause,
To reflect and reinvent
Away from the trappings of the daily grind.
Awaken your inner spirit,
Follow the road that leads to your roots
Just know that
There’s a place that awaits
For you to find your self.
Dig your toes into the earth
Let nature nurture you.

the way to walden!
Nestled in the sylvan foothills of the emerald Shivalik hills, amidst a landscape bequeathed with narrow seasonal streams and small heavenly hills, lies the ancient village of Naurangpur. Situated in the land of the five rivers, Rupnagar (Ropar) is a historic town in Punjab with a rich cultural heritage. Once known as 'Bae Chirag Mauza' or 'abandoned' in land records.
Walden Living is a serene and tranquil destination nestled in the picturesque village of Naurangpur. Located 14 kilometers from the highway, the route to Walden Living is an experience in itself, taking you through the captivating Punjab countryside, quaint villages, and lush forests.
As you leave the highway, you will be greeted by the enchanting Punjab countryside. Witness the beauty of tree canopies that line the roads, providing a scenic backdrop for your drive. Along the way, you will pass through charming small Punjab villages, locally known as 'Pinds,' offering a glimpse into the rural lifestyle of the region.
Further along the route, you will come across quaint marketplaces and small houses, known as 'Taliyas.' These establishments are scattered at considerable intervals, allowing you to fully appreciate the rural landscape. As you continue your journey, commercial activity gradually fades away, and the countryside's serene charm takes center stage.
The final stretch of the journey to Walden Living, approximately 1.5 kilometers, takes you through a dense jungle teeming with wildlife. With luck, you may spot some of the region's fauna during the evening or nighttime hours. Along the way, you will find signboards directing you to Naurangpur village, ensuring a hassle-free drive.
Upon reaching Naurangpur, you will find that Walden Living is the only residence in the area, situated at the very end of the village. Since the partition, no one has resided in Naurangpur, making Walden Living a truly unique and secluded retreat. The well-maintained, 'pakka' roads will ensure a smooth and comfortable journey right up to the property.
