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. It can be part of your kumaon tour.4) If you are looking for something like an extended homestay where you can be yourself and stay comfortably for 4-5 days.

Mumbai, India3 contributions
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

Dear Prashant, In between your review and my very delayed response, you have already been here again. :) Such are the times! It was fun hosting you and I am sure that we will get to see you again sometime soon. Late autumn and early winter would be interesting with its beautiful balance of great weather and fantastic views. Looking forward to seeing you. regards, Suroohi, Ambika and Madhur

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

Hi, Yes. You were amongst the very few guests we were able to host, amidst the chaos that befell all of us. Lately,, we have had quite a few guests stay 4 -5 nights, and have had good feedback from them. We are also working on a completely refreshed menu this Autumn. We are pretty excited about that too! Thank you fro taking time to write this and apologies for responding so late. Covid really derailed all our processes and we are just about getting back to most. Look forward to hosting 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

The stay at The Misty Mountains was a totally relaxing one. The hospitality and overall arrangements were great. Considering the off beat location, the team had taken care of minute things and gave the customers a memorable experience. The food was excellent and the spread was also decent. We met people who have been coming here since last 10 years and always found the place better than their last visit.The trek to the Lambakeshwar Mahadev temple was a 3 km trek, with a great view and gave us a chance to enjoy the snow. Overall, its a great play to relax for a few days and enjoy nature.

The Misty Mountains Retreat is part of the 1000 acre Jhaltola Estate and the cottages, rather log cabins are amidst pine, oak and rhododendron forest. Part of the estate is now home to Madhur and Ambika and they have developed the surrounding areas as a resort, rather, a home stay. Aided with an excellent team of most friendly staff, they made this place home for us for 5 days or so. It is a collection of wood cottages or what are traditionally log cabins. Except that the cottages at Misty Mountains are not austere. They are fitted with comfy beds, sofa, dressing area and a top floor with extra beds as well. They have heater and geyser and even electric blankets to cope with the cold weather. Mind you, there is no television here, or anywhere in Misty Mountains. But when the

Dear Delhifundoos, Slow travel it is! The Misty experience is all about forest walks, lazy breakfasts, hikes and soaking in the 1000 acres of pure bliss around us. It was so much fun hosting you. It has taken me a while to write back on your review, since all of us in the industry were completely derailed. Hope to see you here again sometime. regards, Madhur

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,

This was the highlight of my trip to India. The resort was beautiful and the staff were very friendly and helpful. The owners even make sure that every guest thoroughly enjoys their stay. The food was also fantastic. I highly recommend hiking on the trails around the resort as the views are breath-taking.

Our primary requirement was a beautiful peaceful place that overlooked the Himalayan range. And we found just that at Misty Mountains at Ganglioghat Uttarakhand. Lovely comfortable cottages, that had a view of the Himalayas. Although since it was the end of June, the views were hidden by clouds,but would open up every now & then to make us run like kids to grab the sights. But I must say we lucked out and were able to catch the magnificence of Trishul peak. On a good day one can easily have entire range view including the Nepalese side. The patio outside the cottage with cushioned seating provided uninterrupted peaceful view of the mountains while sipping tea or while I gazed meditatively at cosmic creation. The staff was very helpful, courteous and ready to do all, to make us

Dear Seema ji, This year we got a few guests who stayed for more than 3-4 days. Its a little challenging to keep people engaged and entertained for so long. It is heartening to note that you liked the stay and facilities for a long holiday at Misty. It motivates us to work with more enthusiasm and belief. So, thank you for that. :) Hope to see you here again sometime soon. warm regards, Ambika, Suroohi, Rags and Madhur

Large well lit room, bunk beds for kids, acres of trees and fauna, friendly staff, a place remote and secluded from elsewhere + On a clear day a view of the Himalayas (Trishul, Nanda Devi cluster etc.) right from your room. If you are an early riser there is quite a bit of bird watching you can do in the morning. In addition, you can do a few treks, play badminton/table tennis/chess/game of cards in the indoor high roofed hall. Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner are buffet affairs. You are better off having these, as the property is self sufficient & delightfully remote. Through our entire trip to Uttarakhand we had been wanting to have local food and were lucky enough to have Kumaon food when it was served at lunch on one of the days. Would vote for more variation in the breakfast

The Misty Mountains is a small property in The Misty Mountains is a small property in the Kumaon hills, a mind-blowing location, more beautiful than anywhere I have been before. Though the journey is a long one, 490 km from Delhi, it is more than worthwhile once one gets there. The rooms all face the Himalayan snow ranges, and the view is a 180 degree one. One could spend hours just looking the mountains. We were in a suite which could comfortably accommodate a family of 4. Everything was clean and comfortable, the service excellent. Since the property is built on a hillside, a bit of climbing up and down was required if one wanted to stroll about, but nothing very demanding even for us senior citizens. This is not the place to go if your idea of a holiday is 5 star
