The Misty Mountains is an Offbeat Destination in Kumaon (near Chaukori and Patal Bhuvaneshwar). It has a unique location and stunning himalayan views. Its surrounded by thousands of acres of untouched forests and the nearest neighbour is a kilometer away. Its owned and managed by my wife Ambika, and I. It should be your choice -1) If you are looking for an Offbeat Destination in Kumaon that is untouched by commercial tourism. Its a destination where you can spend quality time with your friends and family.2) If you are looking for an extended stay at a complete destination in itself. It offers great location, clean and comfortable stay, peace, activities and home like food.3) If you are looking to explore the remoter parts of offbeat kumaon like Munsyari Abbot Mount, Binsar, Chaukori or Kausani.

If you love nature and you love to spend time with yourself, then this is the right destination to pamper yourself. Few kilometers away from Raiagar, this property is just for relaxation and rejuvenation within the rustic beauty of nature. All the cottages are beautifully maintained with all modern amenities to give grand comfort to guests. We were there for 2 nights and we thoroughly enjoyed those 48 hours. Special mention: > Superb hospitality of Madhur (owner of the property) > Excellent food - just like home > Comfortable rooms with electric blankets > Tea/Coffee maker > Tea is served in the cottage (it was free for us) Special mention for Bird Watchers/Lovers > There are a vast variety of birds in this area - pick a trail and you would be able to spot a variety of birds Note: Take guidance from Madhur for the route map, however, Google Map shows the parking area correctly.

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.

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.
