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.

I chanced upon this resort while browsing for a stay in Chaukori, and it caught my eye instantly! And the overwhelmingly postive reviews on Tripadvisor helped me to zero down on it for our holidays in Kumaon district in Uttarakhand! All our pre-booking queries were quickly and correctly answered by Ms Kavita, and booking itself was quite smooth. I cant say the same for the journey to reach there from Ahmedabad, though! But once you reach there, you forget it in few moments itself ! It took us around 9 hours by road from Rudrapur city to reach the parking area where their driver was waiting to take us the last few kilometers to the resort in their own vehicle as the road is very rough and steep, and it was an enjoyable and bumpy ride through the jungle! On reaching the resort,

Starting from Jageswar temple after offering puja, we drove to Jhaltola through the zig zag road lined with pine trees. Took a brief halt at the border of Almora and Pithoragarh. Arrived at Riagarh in the afternoon, the last town where one can get the basics. Moving ahead we took the turn to climb up to our destination and stopped at a place from where the hotel vehicle ferried us to Misty Mountain, our temporary home in the hills. The road was very rough in the last lap. We were greeted by our host Mrs Ambica on our arrival. It was late in the afternoon and had a quick bite of sandwitches and coffee. An absolute silence that prevailed was punctured by continuous bird calls. A Rufous Sibia and a Black headed Jay were around our cottage. In the evening I set off for a sunset

We went there on 22nd March 2019 with my family. We stayed in the family cottage. Room no 101. People may complain about the journey and the rough terrain. But we don't, we actually liked and enjoyed the last 3 kms jeep ride to the property. The food was awesome, everything from the pickles to the dessert. Thank You Ambika. Rags was always there as our friendly companion. Will come soon may in winters... Keep this property as pure as you have kept it till date

We went to Misty mountains in the second week of January and I can say this was the best resort we've visited so far in Uttarakhand. The view of the Himalayas, the service, the owners of the resort, staff, food and I can go on. Everything was way beyond expectations :) And I'm proud to say that I suggested this place for our holiday. So if you want both luxury and solitude, then please visit this resort. The place has both cottages and suites so you can choose as per your need. The owner is very humble and helpful and their daughter is a darling. Super cute. Food served to us was super tasty and there was a lot of variety in every meal. Now the best part of this place or at least the best for us were the electric blankets! We slept so comfortably despite the temperatures

The resort is located at a vantage spot and gives the 360 degree view of the Himalayan snow capped peaks . It’s like waking up to a dream sight which is unique and special in all respects. One can spend hours gazing at the mountain and variety of birds which visit the trees in the resort Madhur and Ambika were the perfect hosts and have a great perspective on the region to offer and knowledge of the surrounding which are very important in planning the outings / nature walks etc The staff was great and ever helpful and met all our requests with a smile. Must visit location in Uttarakhand for the mountain lovers and trekkers and star gazers
