We stayed here for 5 nights in the round cottage. The views and the flowers at the property are amazing. Madhur, the owner and his family are super warm hosts and made us feel very comfortable. There dog is an amazing pahadi girl who is super cute. There are a couple of treks from the place and plenty to explore around. Since it is in the middle of a forest one sees nature and it's tiny creatures in abundance but always be mindful we are in there home and not the other way round so please respect that and do not kill any bugs u see. They are quite harmless. Raju and Sonu along with everyone took very good care of us from providing us guided walks especially to the trambhkeshvar temple and some meadows around to providing home made samosas and local kumaoni delicacies. The place has a recreation room and some books but do carry ur own so u can enjoy reading ur favourite author besides a beautiful rose bush and under clear skies while sipping ur favourite beverage. Madhur, thank you for such a wonderful stay at ur place, it felt like home. Will highly recommend this amazing place that is run with a lot of heart and soul.

Responded 1 Jul 2022
Dear Shikha, Thank you for your kind words. It was fun hosting you a here at Misty. This was a proper tourist season after a while and we were a little rusty with the Covid induced stops and starts in the last couple of years. And we have had quite a few guests this season who stayed for a longish duration. I am glad you enjoyed that as much as us. Hope to see you again sometime! Regards, Dear Rajesh, Thank you for your short and to the point review. We are glad you had a good time and would be happy to host you again. regards, Suroohi, Ambika and Madhur

If you’re thinking of vacationing at the Misty Mountains, here is a quick table on what to expect:
1 - Hospitality. Few places come close
2 - Seclusion. It is a piece of heaven in its own little corner
3 - Food. Outstanding local delicacies
4 - Madhur. The Misty mountains is like an extension of the person he is. Welcoming, serene, warm and one with nature
5 - Nature, mountains, fresh air, peace, tranquility, sheer beauty. Misty mountains has it all, in abundance!

Clearly, the pros out – weigh the cons by far. However, bear in mind that if you come from warm climes (like we do), then the indifferent insulation in the rooms and the can be a slight issue. Each room is equipped with heaters and electric blankets. The problem though is if the heater is put on, then the blanket is ineffective, and vice versa. Apparently, this is because the electric voltage isn’t sufficient to power all the appliances simultaneously. However, if you carry sufficient warm clothing, you should be fine.

Madhur had allotted one family cottage and two smaller cottages to us. The family cottage is a double – storied unit. It comprises of three bedrooms with en suite bathrooms and a large living area. The one we had was also equipped with a small attic room, which can easily accommodate 3 children or two adults. Overall, it had a capacity of 8 adults and a few kids thrown in for good measure.

The smaller cottages meanwhile comprised of two bedrooms and one bathroom. Again, cozy and comfortable for a small family. Everything was solid and well – built, comfortable and very homely.

Despite the temperature plunging below 0 by evening, our bathroom pipes happily gushed with piping hot water from the resort’s solar tanks. The other cottages weren’t so lucky though. However, this too wasn't a problem for the Misty Mountain's team. Raju, the man – Friday assisting Madhur, had to tramp up and down the mountainside ferrying buckets of hot water for them to bathe.

The place isn't a typical resort. It is more of a collection of cottages spread over the mountainside. They're constructed such that each cottage has panoramic views of the nanda Devi range, at least in the winters.

We could see the entire Nanda Devi range framed in our ‘L’ shaped bedroom window! Gazing out, it was as though we were looking at a picture of the mountains through a glass frame. That early in the winter morning the skies were a clean, clear blue, affording uninterrupted views of the entire range. There are no words to describe the breath – taking beauty of what we saw. Imagine waking up to this view everyday!

Besides being within striking distance of Patal Bhuvaneshwar, the place offers brilliant hiking and trekking opportunities. We spend nearly all our time trekking through the property's 1100 acre estate, clocking 12 to 14KMS everyday. In 4 days, we were far from done! There is no better location for safe trekking, whether you are with kids or solo. The best part - it is a private estate so you won't come across anyone else. Just you, the mountains, forests and nature's bounty.

The Misty Mountains is a winner all the way. There are no two ways about it. If your idea of a holiday is communing with nature, yet, coming back to the comfort of a cozy home, warm hearth and intelligent conversations, then there is no better destination than Ambika & Madhur's Misty Mountains resort.

Dear Abhishek, That is a beautiful and an elaborate review of Misty. Thank you for your generosity with your words as well as time in writing this. You have captured the essence of Misty - the experience of good food, warm hospitality and creature comforts within a 1000 acres of solitude. Look forward to seeing you here again sometime. And please do not mind the long gap between the review and this response. We were almost on pause mode the last year or so and just getting back to everything Misty. Cheers, Ambika, Suroohi and Madhur

We spent 4 nights and 3 days at the Resort and after spending Chilly Nights in Tents in Chopta, Misty's Oak Suite with electric blanket and heaters with all the facilities was a bliss and Wife was super elated to be there.

The Oak Suite being located at the highest point in Resort has the most Amazing view of the Himalayan Range. The Suite interiors and the furniture are top notch.

Being situated in the midst of the Jungle, an offbeat location, Madhur and staff ensured that we had best home-style meals which were finger-licking good.
The Staff was always ready to listen in to our request and were very humble.
Did a Trek to Lamkeshwar Mahadev and Vishnu Mandir from where the view is breathtaking. The Sunset point we could visit only once due to the cloudy weather, but it was worth it.

Madhur has really put his heart and soul in the property and it is visible when you notice the different Suites, which are built with so much passion and patience over the years.

Madhur, you were excellent host and would love to come back to Misty as soon as possible. Thank you for helping us make some good memories to last for our lifetime.

We spent 5 night at this beautiful and quaint resort amidst the COVID crisis. Initily we were a bit apprehensive about travelling, but found comfort here due to it's offbeat location and huge space (spread out across ~1,000 acres) which makes it perfectly suitable for social distancing. The property is based in a lush green forest with beautiful Himalayan views from every cottage in the property. Ambika was hands down a brilliant host. Besides doing all she could to make our stay comfortable, she personally cooked exquisite dishes for us incl. a fancy anniversary cake for us. The staff was also very friendly and courteous, and never said no to any of our requests. They also took us for 2 amazing hikes including a sunset walk, and Lamkeshwar walk. The property is also equipped with an activity room where we spent some time playing TT, carom and badminton. Last but not the least, we were served a great variety of food during our stay including a special local Kumaoni lunch, and desi mutton. Overall, we will highly recommend this place for its beautiful ambience (himalayan views), reasonable pricing (inclusive of meals), food and hospitality, and more so during the current pandemic.

It was another ordinary Sunday afternoon , loitering before TV , when my husband popped up this question : are you taking leave on your B’s day ….. let’s plan some Friday outing ….
Glued, as I was to Nat Geo , replied absent minded …. ‘ trek, as usual ‘
Once I uttered those words , came the startling realization … ‘where to ?’ ..
Having covered the usual tourist destinations , our search in the last 10 years have been always ‘ offbeat ‘ ; this time too , there was no exceptions
For weekend get-a -way I chose a place almost 500 kms away from the Capital ; but thatz the beauty of staying in Delhi-NCR ; you get to wheel away on long drives to places f….a….r from the maddening crowd & pollution
Nestled among snow-covered peaks, captivating rivers, wild flora & fauna, holy temples, the Kumaon region of Uttarakhand allows tourists to relish and quench the travel lust in a serene way
My net search brought up the ‘Misty Mountains ‘ --> a retreat which shared great reviews of being ‘ The jewel in the Crown ‘ ( sic: Kumaon Himalayas ) Set on a hill-side facing the Nanda Devi range, it boasted some of the finest views of the Greater Himalayas, while offering the traveler well-equipped rooms to make the stay as comfortable as possible.
I didn’t look further.
Made the necessary booking and started the count-down ……
We started on Thursday night 1 a.m. . followed GPS and reached Bhimtaal by 8:30 a.m.
Stopped for breakfast and then started for Ram Mandir (our GPS destination to parking ) via Almora town to the road towards Chitai, Barechinna, Dhaulchinna, Sheraghat--> round-about at Raiagar
The beauty of the nature en-route calls for another different blog altogether . One must experience the awe, first hand .All through the route, our host Mr. Madhur Chhabra called us 2-3 times to guide us and we felt quite at-ease . Once arrived at the parking, Manoj was waiting for us to pick up . We met Suroohi , cute little daughter of our hosts ….who was fast asleep after her play school … but gave a dazzling smile on seeing us ( & Shiro , our canine son ) which lit up her innocent face . Manoj promised us an adventurous ride to the estate which he did !
While cruising through Gangolighat, all of a sudden, the jeep took off the road and started climbing the mountain !!
The rolling topography, unknown trails, plush green forests, and narrow tracks made the journey vividly exciting . Even after that long journey , the last lap proved immensely worthwhile .
Once reached, we were greeted by our gracious host , Mr Madhur Chhabra , with a camera in hand and comforting smile on his face ; he has a knack of bird watching and shooting thru his high lens digicam .
We parked ourselves in the Oak suites and loved the ambiance immediately .
The well spaced room with a mesmerizing backdrop of the mighty Himalayan ranges captivated us to the core . Alongwith room heater, the main bed had electrically heated mattresses - which added comfort to the cold end-of-November nights. Simple upholstery and furnishings , tastefully decorated, gave a warm touch to the homely decor. The bathroom was clean, spacious, well-lit, nicely fitted, with hot water at service . The attic upstairs had kids bed and a robust view to pep up
Outside the Suites, the grounds, have log tables and chairs, a small lotus pond ( water reservoir for birds ) , hammocks and swings. There's a activity hall, ‘ Kalrav ‘ with a huge amphitheater , wonderful selection of books, card table, indoor badminton court, table tennis, carrom, chess and a few other indoor games. Food was simple yet tasty with excellent set of menu, .timed for Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner.
I carried a chocolate cake with toppings for B’s day celebration and had the cake -cutting with the team there amidst the utterly scenic backdrop of setting Sun and cool breeze blowing through our hair . It was quite surreal feeling and very different from the stereo-types parties . Everyone had their share and greeted me smilingly. Felt like , I knew them from ages !
We met Rags , the friendly estate canine who cozied upto me instantly 😊
Himalayas keep calling us & we are definitely under the spell …. Otherwise we wouldn’t have driven so long traverse on a weekend , just to stay there for 1.5 days and return
The property is placed in a mind-blowing location, surrounded by dense forest habituated by leopards of Kumaon hills, frighteningly beautiful yet keeps yearning for more .
This is not the place to go if your idea of a holiday is 5 star hotels, chilled beer by the pool side etc. It is a place where you breathe clean air, listen to birdsong all day and watch the valleys and mountains stretching out before you. The rooms all face the Himalayan snow ranges, and the view is a 180- 240 degree one. One could spend hours just looking the mountains.
One should spend at least 4 days there to soak and immerse in the surrounding. Be it trek or hike or visit to Patal Bhuveneswar , the time has to be spent . I had youtubed that cave and wanted to visit but unfortunately Shiro is not allowed there and we couldn’t leave him behind .
Our objective was to spend quality family time together and we could surpass the goal to our hearts content ! For once , I did not have to receive office calls at night ( no signal, of course ) We sang , danced ( no liquor please ), karaoked, laughed and called off the day . There is no TV or electronic devices , so the only bond is … actual human interactions . At dinner table ( open space with bonfire & a vast canopy of starts lighting the night sky ), we met the only other guests in that huge estate who were hiking entrepreneur themselves and had come to do a reiki of the place . They had many interesting stories to tell and we shared a fantastic time…. bonding over our meal . They planned for Lamkeshwar trek the next day and invited us , but we had to decline sadly .
Next day morning started with a golden Sunrise on the snow clad Himalayan peaks , making us watch the best show in the world unfold: the peaks of Nanda Ghunti, Mrig Thuni, Nanda Khat, Nanda East and West, and Nanda Kot , the five peaks of Panchachuli on the right & the ones near Nepal border . What more can anybody want ? I felt that I couldn’t have come to a better place; just lay back & do nothing 😊
At least for a day , the wheels beneath my toes, were off , the clocks ticking around me were shut , the incessant buzz of phones and skype calls were redundant. Time was not slipping away from my fingers and I could cherish each moment of the day , as it rolled .
After sumptuous breakfast we decided to explore Kalrav . We played TT, badminton, carrom, chased butterflies at the backyard , read books, acted out mimicries on the stage and laughed a lot ! Morning well spent .
Then we decided to go on a small trek around the retreat . A pet friendly homestay with it's literally acres of space for you to explore with your pet. But Shiro couldn’t walk much . He has a cardio problem accentuated with arthritis . So kids took him back to the room while we both trotted out holding cane sticks ( props ) . Oh ! what a lovely day it was . Strolling through the rugged terrain and thick woods gave a thrill beyond apprehension. After walking for half hour and crossing a field, we took a wrong turn and ended inside the forest : dark & cold & wet . I looked for the big yellow ( or black ) cat on the trees but couldn’t locate any , probably they are very shy of visitors ; birds --.> there were many .
The place has something for everyone –It is a great place for bird watchers and nature lovers with many species of birds being found within the property and the vicinity itself, walkers who would like the easy pace of the undulating terrain around. Mr Madhur captured a Black chinned babbler on his camera that afternoon and detailed the view to us . Luncheon was again excellent and Mrs Ambika Chhabra gave us company throughout our meal . She is very articulate and charming and I found her quite knowledgeable too , in all current affairs of the state/country . Great host and impressively intelligent .
With passing of time , it was almost 3 and we were slated to trek to the sunset point 4 kms away to watch another opera of mountain view on a larger scale . Inviting proposal indeed, but once we started after heavy lunch we felt our legs giving away from the earlier trek ( age is catching up with us ). So we decided to retire to our rooms and play ‘adda’.
Memories well collected and treasured .
Sunday morning we packed our breakfast and started home ( don’t want to recite the return journey which was full of logjam, chaos & strain )
We were back to the dreary /mundane routine once again , facing the Monday morning blues ! Somewhere back in our mind the sparkle remained , waiting for the ignition to go back 😊
