the space

The stone cottages of O’er the Hills are perched on a mountaintop in a Kumaon village and require a short and easy hike from the road. The highlight of the property is undoubtedly its location above the Ramganga river valley. The village offers riveting 360-degree views of Nanda Devi, Nanda Kot, and Trishul. The stunning views can get tiring for the eyes as you stare helplessly – from dawn to dusk, from twilight to starlight.

 

This is a Pahadi paradise where you can meet gentle and content mountain people, birds, and geckos. You will be in the heart of the central Himalayan wilderness.

comforts

There are 6 stone cottages with ground bedding and cots, mats, and sleeping bags or quilts to ensure a comfortable stay in the wilderness. Hygienic toilet tents are also provided. Hammocks, lounge chairs, driftwood, and campfire stools are found across the campsite. There is no electricity in the village, so kerosene/solar lanterns are used to light the camp adequately during the night. This is a true wilderness experience.

food

The village here is primarily agriculture-based. Feast on fresh, organically-grown, high-altitude vegetables particularly in autumn and winter. The kitchen provides wholesome Indian cuisine, with a special emphasis on local Kumaoni delicacies. Continental food can also be prepared on request. Tea/coffee/juices are served at regular intervals. Clean, filtered water is brought to the camp from the mountain spring.

ideal for

Ideal if you seek the simple pleasures of life and can compromise on modern comforts. There’s everything you need to enjoy a comfortable stay, but no fancy beds, room service, etc.

 

But, you see, none of this matters when you’re here. We promise.

getting there

Located 211 km from Kathgodam. Drive 50 km beyond Bageshwar town, the village is an easy 2.5 km short hike from the road’s head. Your luggage will be transported to the ridge top in a rope trolley.

things to do

Take short day hikes in the countryside to surrounding villages and places of interest. Try delicious Kumaoni food in village homes.

 

We recommend parking yourself here to catch the light fall on the glistening peaks, the clouds enveloping the valley below, and the majestic griffon vultures circling in unison. The views are hypnotizing, and before you know it, it will be time for bed in this sleepy village.
