GREAT FOR

    Those who like being in the lap of luxury and nature. Fantastic for the fit couples who’re looking for an untouched, private and marvelous place to just enjoy the company of each other or a group of family and friends who are looking for a getaway from Delhi! This place is also perfect for a small yoga retreat or a corporate getaway or even a camp for kids!

What we love

  • The location of this house will take your breath away! Located on the foothills of Kumaon mountains, this gorgeous stone house is built at an altitude of 2000 meters just shy of the ridge top amidst oak and rhododendron forests.
  • Each room, named after the local flora of the region, has been furnished so tastefully with pastel colours that blend in perfectly with the naturals. The wooden flooring beneath the feet, the fluttering lace curtains lining the windows and the precious fireplaces all evoke an old world charm that makes it a constant struggle to decide whether one should be indoors or outdoors!
  • We love the eclectic and quaint furniture that’s balanced off with modern and sometimes bewildering fixtures!
  • For nature and landscape aficionados there are more windows than walls here, for the bookworms, there’s a delightful library and for those who want to catch up on the gossip, there are beautiful spaces all around! How about that for a vacation now!
  • We love the creative bathrooms crafted in wood and skinny branches! Some of the bathrooms come with double sinks and have been beautifully furnished with products made out of natural materials.
  • You’re the master of your hours here. You’ll find the hours quickly floating by just like the clouds before you. Bring out the poet or painter within you, take a walk, play the guitar, read a book, help in the kitchen or throw a frisbee to the resident dog, only to never get it back!

What to know

  • Don’t miss the curious swing placed right where the clouds swing by most evenings. You may think twice before taking a seat at the cylindrical frame but once the fear has been put to rest, you won’t want to get up!
  • Spare a few minutes from your relaxed schedule to get chatting with the caretaker to hear the local folklore! And if you’re an animal lover, you’ll fall in love with quite a few creatures during your stay here!
  • The house is about a 45-60 minute hike. Worry not though, you just have to carry yourself and not your luggage. It is lovely to get your heart rate going and see your cheeks reflect the colours of the Rhododendrons blooming all around. If however, you and your knees are not the best of friends, you can trot up/ down on a pony.
  • When you’re up 2000 meters in the Himalayas, the nights are blissfully chilly! Rub your hands and keep yourself warm by the crackling fireplace either in your room or outside. For those with asthma or breathing difficulties, we’d recommend the outdoors as the rooms can sometimes trap the smoke.
  • The highest peak in India, Nanda Devi, can be seen from here on a clear day. The forest around abounds in mysteries, the clouds are super friendly and the air is so clean you can feel your lungs alive again!

Bird Watching in Uttarakhand

This place is a paradise for bird watchers! Step just outside your cottage and you’ll see them or hear them chirping away.

During spring and summer, the place is swamped with beautiful birds but pheasants and other local birds can be seen through the year.

Some other birds that you may see are the Yellow Billed Magpie, Red Vented Bulbuul Bengalenisis, Blue Whistling Thrush, Oriental White Eye, Black Headed Jay, Barn Swallow, Himalayan Bulbul or the Wedge Tailed Green Pigeon.

Find a spot that you like, get your cup of tea and sit back to enjoy the true delight of the Himalayan birds. The experience is utterly calming and soothing to the senses. Sights that are so tough to otherwise find in a city.
