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.

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

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,

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
