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.

About 500 kms from Delhi. 4 hours drive from Almora on the Berinag road. Takes you to Jhaltola village from where the Jeep takes you through a bumpy 3 km ride. You may hate this bumpy ride after the long journey, but believe me there is a breathtaking view awaiting your arrival in the Misty mountain resort. My suggestion, if you are coming from Delhi or Lucknow, break your journey at Almora. Start early morning for Jhaltola. Last 50 kms of the road is not very good, but the road from Haldwani to Almora & beyond is excellent. If you are keen on self driving, take your SUV. 4x4 can take you right upto the resort. Misty mountains is about 6000 feet surrounded by dense jungles all around & a breathtaking view of Himalayas. If you love mountains, a visit in winter would offer an

Dear Rajesh Ji, Thank you so much for taking time to review us here on Tripadvisor. It is a long journey from Delhi and guest are best advised to take a night's stop at Almora/Binsar. Unless ofcourse one is passionate about driving in the hills. The 14 hour drive from Delhi is beautiful but tiring. It is only on reaching us that guests realise that it is well worth the effort. I will convey your kind words to Raju and the team as well. Hope to see you again sometime. regards, madhur

This was one of our most memorable stays in Kumaon, Uttarakhand. Getting to the hotel from the parking area itself is a thrill, as they drive you up a rough mountain road in a jeep. The rooms are spacious and comfortable, the staff friendly and helpful and the food delicious. The owners Madhur and Ambika are totally involved in all aspects of managing this remote hotel, and it shows. There is a variety of home made jams and pickles at every meal, and you can easily build up an appetite by going on different trails and treks. You can of course simply soak in the freshness and beauty of the Himalayan range from the patio or the garden itself. I highly recommend this destination and this hotel and look forward to returning some day.

I have read about the Misty Mountains retreat when I was at Binsar. My next day stay was there at the Misty Mountains. I became thrilled knowing how to reach there and what is there in store. As suggested, I called up Madhur, the owner of this property to help us reach there and was directed by him on how to reach to the common parking at "Ram Mandir". I later on forgot the name "Ram Mandir" and after heading towards the Misty Mountains I trusted on the GPS Signal. Soon the GPS signal was lost and we have reached the place marked in the Map where a winding road is the only hope left with us. No one nowhere was there to guide us and telephone signal is also lost. Then the journey became extremely thrilling as sun was setting and we are to ask someone to reach the Misty

We were recommended this place by a well travelled relative and we blindly decided to give it a try!!! And, sure, we were not disappointed....we went there in the 3rd week of May....The travel from Binsar to Jhaltola was breathtaking, with narrow winding roads in the picturesque Kumaon Mountains....When we finally reached the destination, we had to park our Innova at the base of the property, from where their 4X$4 jeep came and picked us up and took us to the property....What an amazing place!!! 10 acres of development amongst a thick forest, left us stunned. The cottages are well spread out, giving you complete privacy. Our's was a 4 bed room cottage, with 2 levels.....all the rooms offer you an unlimited view of the Himalayas on a clear and sunny day....However, we were not so
