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.

Dear Sir, Thank you for your kind words and appreciation. It was a pleasure hosting you all at Misty. Lots of our guests who stay at Misty end up becoming friends with each other and keep in touch long after their stay. It is that kind of place and I am happy that you enjoyed that aspect of Misty. We hope that we would see you again sometime soon. regards, Suroohi, Ambika and madhur

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
