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

Madhur and Ambika, have created exact replica of home one often see in picture postcards. Set in 1000 acre forest overlooking mighty Himalayas, it is nothing short of a dream vacation home. Waking up to songs of birds and enjoying morning tea while soaking sunrise in Himalayas is definitely a must have experience. Pictures on TA, hotel website and other platforms don't do justice to beauty of the place, visit the place and enjoy the beauty of nature in its purest form. Hotel management and staff take care of you like you are their family guest which is very rare quality in hospitality industry. Ambika, Raju and Sonu ensured our stay was a memorable one. Ambika , gave us interesting insights into region food, culture and history while Sonu & Raju pampered us with impeccable

After having spent 3 nights in Munsyari at a not so nice hotel we didn't know what we were in for. Our 3 night stay at Misty was far more than we expected or could have asked for. Madhur and Ambika, our hosts, very warm and welcoming, run Misty more as a home away from home than a hotel. We were two couples and stayed at a family cottage that could sleep eight on two levels. Lovely place with independent bedrooms on two levels with en-suite bathrooms and a lounge, and an open air sit out with spectacular clear views of the ice capped Garhwal and Kumaon mountains stretching hundreds of miles from West to East and into Nepal. Very comfortable beds with electric under blankets and clean clean bed linen and towels. We loved the ambience, the quiet, clean fresh air and sunshine.

After an adventurous 3 km jeep ride through the mud road that leads you to the property, I was feeling tired and all the more worried if I made the right choice in choosing a property which is far off from anything remotely "mainstream". However, the moment you reach, the smiles and the warmth of the hosts and the team who makes misty mountains your second home will put a smile on your face and put your concerns to rest! When we were there, it rained continuously except the last day and hence we couldn't see the gorgeous views. But I can imagine what a visual treat on a good day it would be. Raju and his team will treat you as if you have known them for ever and take care of you like family members. There are walks and short treks that offer great views and rustic forest

A 17 hour drive from Delhi will take you somewhere searching for Ram Mandir .. a pilgrimage which you are not quite sure you want to take... At one of the steep bends , we saw an old jeep and rather gritty looking man waving at us . He asked us to park our car there .. said he is in control from now onwards. Half surprised .. half happy ( finally) we gathered ourself in the jeep .. our Lab Alex swelled at the opportunity of jumping into a new car :) . The jeep ride was a revelation. Not only it kick start what would be an amazing 3 days .. it gave us the first real taste of adventure .. that steep , rocky mountain drive with blind turns was an experience in itself .. That rocky experience took us to a series of tastefully designed cottages which made the ecosystem so surreal.

Dear Rajat, Thank you for taking time to review us here and your kind words. It means the world to us that guests go back happy and intend to come back to relive those happy memories. Yes. It does take some travelling to reach us. 17 hours is a but too much and you were unlucky to find that kind of traffic/road conditions. The distance from Delhi is under 500 kms and 14 or 15 hours should have been enough. I hope you were luckier on your way back. We do work hard at keeping the forest healthy and protected. And these efforts have born fruit in the last few years as ours is perhaps the densest forest in the region. This fosters a variety of bird and animal life. We hope we can make it better and better still. look forward to seeing you here again sometime soon. Regards, Ambika, Suroohi and Madhur

Wow is the word you will utter almost every few minutes, as you take in the amazing beauty of this place managed superbly by Madhur & his wonderful team. Nothing could prepare us for the majesty of the views we had, especially on one rainy day. An unforgettable moment. There are lots of great walks in the area and we got lucky with a leopard sighting on one of those walks. I would love to go back there some day soon (making sure there are no public holidays around the same time, as it does get busy during those times.)

Dear Anand, Thank you for your kind words. It is an indeed a magical place. We have been living here for the last 10 years and we still get overwhelmed by its beauty sometimes. It does get busy around public holidays and summer vacations... But that's the time most people get to travel. Look forward to see you again sometime. Travel in autumn or early winter. Best time for views as well as peace. Regards... Suroohi, Ambika and Madhur
