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.

If you love nature and you love to spend time with yourself, then this is the right destination to pamper yourself. Few kilometers away from Raiagar, this property is just for relaxation and rejuvenation within the rustic beauty of nature. All the cottages are beautifully maintained with all modern amenities to give grand comfort to guests. We were there for 2 nights and we thoroughly enjoyed those 48 hours. Special mention: > Superb hospitality of Madhur (owner of the property) > Excellent food - just like home > Comfortable rooms with electric blankets > Tea/Coffee maker > Tea is served in the cottage (it was free for us) Special mention for Bird Watchers/Lovers > There are a vast variety of birds in this area - pick a trail and you would be able to spot a variety of birds

Dear Mr. Basu, Thank you for your kind words. Yes, Google shows the parking correctly but misguides if one searches for the resort as it shows the shortest footpath for the last bit. It is better to follow the map that we send our guests. Thank you for highlighting this. Would love to see you here again sometime soon. regards, Suroohi, Ambika and Madhur

If you’re thinking of vacationing at the Misty Mountains, here is a quick table on what to expect: 1 - Hospitality. Few places come close 2 - Seclusion. It is a piece of heaven in its own little corner 3 - Food. Outstanding local delicacies 4 - Madhur. The Misty mountains is like an extension of the person he is. Welcoming, serene, warm and one with nature 5 - Nature, mountains, fresh air, peace, tranquility, sheer beauty. Misty mountains has it all, in abundance! Clearly, the pros out – weigh the cons by far. However, bear in mind that if you come from warm climes (like we do), then the indifferent insulation in the rooms and the can be a slight issue. Each room is equipped with heaters and electric blankets. The problem though is if the heater is put on, then the blanket

Dear Abhishek, That is a beautiful and an elaborate review of Misty. Thank you for your generosity with your words as well as time in writing this. You have captured the essence of Misty - the experience of good food, warm hospitality and creature comforts within a 1000 acres of solitude. Look forward to seeing you here again sometime. And please do not mind the long gap between the review and this response. We were almost on pause mode the last year or so and just getting back to everything Misty. Cheers, Ambika, Suroohi and Madhur

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.

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

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,

Hi, That was quite a review! I am a lazy traveller and have huge respects for those of you who can drive 500 kms one way, just to spend a couple of nights away from cities. And yes, i would second your suggestion for 4 nights to soak in the place. thank you for your kind words and vivid review. Hope to see you here again sometime soon. cheers! Suroohi, Ambika and Madhur

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
