Spent 6 nights at Jilling estate by myself. A thoroughly different experience from the usual resort life. Its about a 1 hour climb up a nice track (and a lovely guide called Ramlalji) upto the family home and cottages. Nanda Devi was elusive for all other than day 1. But the views and walks are lovely. If you like solitude, books to read, a lovely family that shares their home and love of animals/ forests with you and well cooked home like Indian food, this is the place for you. Away from the tourists, groups and pollution that is so often seen in hill stations in India. On the negative side , bathrooms are basic, no hot running water, and there is often electricity cuts.
