This place is really nice. A series of tents, on the hill slope, 1.5 Kms from the main motorable road. No working mobile network (except for cellone), practically helps you relax. Just cimb up a few steps to the top of the hill and you get a marvellous view of the snow capped ranges and the villages at the foothills....

If you need a few days to explore not only nature but your inner self as well, this is a place!! Though you need to keep in mind that you won't get the luxuries you used to have in 5 star hotels but you will find peace and a lifetime experience. A must go!!

It is a Beautiful place, so calming, so peaceful, One must go! Amazing hospitality. Serene place! The staff member named shobha ram is so generous. He'll never refuse to whatever you ask for. Just one disadvantage, there's hardly any network. Only bsnl works! Communication is difficult. So before you go,prepare yourself!

Initially we were considering some other campsites in the region due to budget issues, this one not being the cheapest option. Finally based on recommendation of some common friends we chose Whispering Pines -...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Whispering Pines, Jwarna (near Kanatal) is one of India's highest adventure resorts, at over 8,000 feet above m.S.L. And one of the closest active lifestyle family holiday destination at this altitude from Delhi. Whispering Pines also has one of the Best Sunrise View in the country. Whispering Pines Himalayan Retreat, the property is nothing short of high level of comforts, unending array of recreation and activities for all ages, and a retreat virtually spread over an entire hillock - exploring which, may be a full day activity in itself. The retreat is well equipped and most popular holiday nature resort for nature and adventure lovers in the region, just 30 kms off Mussoorie, 10 kms off Dhanolti and 4 kms off Kanatal.A round-the-year destination, this magic kingdom, blessed by mother nature welcomes the new age, lifestyle oriented families, corporates, international travelers, with hard-to-imagine-unless-you've-been-there captivating weather. Cool breeze welcomes you here in the peak summers, bright open skies, with occasional hide and seek of romantic mists in the monsoons, and the warm sun tempting you to bask in its glory over the heaps of fresh snow in the winters. Reason To Visit: The wide variety of recreation for all ages and tastes. Amazing 180° view of snow capped Himalayan peaks all round the year. Thick forests of Cedar, Pine and Rhodendron all around in addition to Apple orchards. Good food and proximity to dozens of places of tourist interest, including Tehri Dam, Dhanolti, Mussoorie and more. Round the year destination for the entire family. Clearly for those looking for an Un-hotel experience and can enjoy mother nature sans TVs, WiFi, Mobile Phones (only BSNL gets great network here), luxuries and fancy glitz. Know It: Whispering Pines is an active lifestyle nature resort located away from the main town and there may not be any shopping options nearby. Do not expect multi cuisine gourmet dining or room service here. Carry lots of heavy woolens even in summers. Due to road widening, temporarily, our guests will require to park their cars at a spot below the property and walk for about 100 meters to reach the reception. Porters available for baggage. Inconvenience regretted. Feel free to talk to the camp managers before hand to clarify any doubts or queries that you may have regarding what to expect and what not to while coming to this natural haven. ... more   less
