The Khali Estate is located within the Binsar Wild Life Sanctuary. The Binsar Wild Life Sanctuary is widely known for its flora and fauna and different species of birds and animals. As we drove through the dense vegetation of the Sanctuary towards Khali Estate, the only sound that could be heard was that of chirping of birds.Khali took our breath away at first sight itself. It was a quaint and picturesque property amidst the remote wilderness and had amazingly beautiful cottages housed within. The cottage was furnished well and the windows provided an excellent view of the Himalayas . We were lucky to be the only guests at Khali.
We were given a tour of the estate and also got to know that Khali had a rich history and had in the past hosted many luminaries including Mahatma Gandhi and the Nehru family.

Food served for breakfast and dinner was excellent. It was prepared and served with so much love. The staff at Khali estate is wonderful. We felt we were at home and really enjoyed the fireplace which they especially set up for us every evening.

The nature walks we took here were beautiful. Except for the rustling of dry leaves being trampled under our feet and chirping of birds, no other sound could be heard. We walked through the winding forest path bordered on both sides by pine and oak trees.
We saw so many wood peckers pecking too

Khali is beautiful and we sincerely hoping to go back there once again for a longer stay.

A big thank you to the most amazing staff at Khali for making our stay so comfortable and amazing.

We stayed here from Dec 31 to Jan 2. The place was too cold in the evenings. The view of snow-covered mountains was excellent. There was hadly any wildlife, may be due to the weather. Electric supply was erratic. Getting hot water for a bath was difficult. The food was home-like.

The resort is inside the Binsar wildlife sanctuary which makes it a perfect place for bird watchers and peace lovers.

There is no Television in the rooms, you will find little to no connectivity on your mobile networks and the Wifi is limited to the reception area - which is great for people who really want to disconnect from the world.

I completed reading a book that was pending for some time, slept on the hammock under the sun and played badminton (they have a court in the campus and also provide the rackets and shuttlecock)

The staff is friendly, humble and very caring. They serve simple yet delicious food (Non Veg is not permitted within the Wildlife sanctuary)

It is a pet-friendly resort which is one of the main reasons I booked this place as I did not want to leave my little dog behind. The staff gave fresh milk for her at no extra cost - who doesnt love such gestures?

Room tip: Pick the Cottages facing the Himalayan Ranges

Wonderful resort. Great views of nature. Excellent common room with fire place.
Inspite of only 2 of us in the resort, we were treated with excellent food. Staff treated us very well. A bit expensive but still recommend a stay.

Sometimes you don't know what you are looking for but recognize it the moment you see it - this is the feeling we had within 10 minutes of entering Khali resort. The place is steeped in a 150 yr old history which can actually be felt and touched in the library of the central bungalow.

Spread over 26 acres, the campus is a nature lover's delight with Pine, Cedar & Oak trees spread all around and langoors paying frequent ( but charming ) visits. There are beautiful jungle trails around the campus which make for lovely morning and evening walks. The adjacent hills proved perfect starter as training ground for mountain climbing.

Food is lovingly made and served by a very friendly and helpful staff that is always eager to please. Most food is home grown including the milk which is from cows on campus. No non-veg is served which is as it is not allowed within sanctuary limits but also - it is not in the spirit of the place. As the gentlemanly proprietor Pandeyji explains it so perfectly - the place is based on the basic principles of non-ahimsa.

Also, its the only place within the sanctuary that has 24x7 electricity.

Overall - a must visit if you love off beat locations and love nature with the homestay touch.
