the space

The stone cottages of this property are perched up 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 and surrounded by its biggest peaks. The village offers riveting 360-degree views of – Mt. Nanda Devi (7848 m), Mt. Nanda Kot (6861m) and Mt. Trishul (7120 m). The stunning views can get tiring for the eyes as you stare helplessly – from dawn to dusk, from twilight to starlight. It is a Pahadi paradise where you get to eat what is organically grown, meet the gentle, simple, and content mountain people, birds, and geckos, and take hikes to mountain tops and meadows or laze around in the high grass where worries cease to exist. You will be in the heart of the central Himalayan wilderness.

comforts

There are six stone cottages with ground bedding and cots, mats, and sleeping bags or quilts to ensure a comfortable stay in the wilderness. Hygienic toilet tents with w/c and running water flushes are also provided. Hammocks, lounge chairs, driftwood, and campfire stools blending with the natural environment are found across the campsite. To maintain the natural jungle environment, no electricity is used in the village. 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 and one can feast on fresh, organically-grown, high-altitude vegetables particularly in autumn and winter. The kitchen provides wholesome and fresh 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.
