Quite an experience
Lovingly restored village home with all the modern comforts . We went during the monsoons so enjoying the torrential mountain rains from inside the cottage was an out of the world experience not to mention the lush greenery that surrounds you . It’s absolutely quiet out there , Air diamond like and the food absolutely ravishing. Frankly we did not expect that standard in the middle of no where . You can either opt to drink bottled water or mountain stream water . We opted for the latter and did not regret . We went for a trek to the nearby 7th century Jageshwar temples . And the ASI site museum . We went at a time when there was hardly any people around . So walking amongst the millennia old temples surrounded by century old deodar trees was a bliss . There is an intoxicating smell that hangs in the mountain air - mix of deodar wood , pine cones and a 1000 other things which I find mesmerising . While returning we jumped into a mountain stream and soothed our bodies in fresh , cold Himalayan stream water . Few things to watch out for . It’s a long drive from Gurgaon . With stoppages in the middle it’s going to take around 11 hours . The road ends near a temple after that there is a 2-3 km dirt track and it may not be for the faint hearted , specially during the monsoons . I am told that the roads are ok during non monsoon months . The dirt track ends around 200 m away from the hotel and then you have to walk through a narrow mountain path . It’s all a part of the experience but you need to know what to expect . Nothing in the hotel description prepares you for that . After the sun sets you will have nothing to do - so ensure that you have interesting company with you . They have a small library and board games if that what interests you . It would be wise to carry a insect repeller - keep in mind the cottage is in the middle of the Himalayan pine forests . The staff are amazing ( all of them ) and they will go out of their way to help you . Dinesh ( the owner) is an absolutely amicable person and I learnt this is first venture . Hats off to him to have the courage to follow his heart . A little bit of intelligent landscaping around the cottage and having an arrangement of flower pots in front of each of the windows ( the rot iron holders you see protruding below the windows holding the flower pots ) can make this place even more beautiful . Just a thought . Overall we were there with friends and we absolutely loved this experience . On our way back we stopped at Almora ( which was a waste of time - crowded and congested ) , and the rock paintings which deserves a look . There are no guides but you can see the figures painted in red when our ancestors lived in caves . There is a flight of stairs that takes you on the top of the rock and the view is pretty .

Peaceful, homely, adventurous experience
A different experience. Totally offbeat, yet very homely. The food is exceptional & the hospitality of caretakers as well. A good trek till the Jageshwar temple and the village nearby. Perfect for getting away from the busy life and getting some peaceful time for self.

Perfect place to rejuvenate
A beautiful property in a perfect location at Naikana Village (Almora). The views from room are exceptional beautiful. My friend and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Clean rooms and bathrooms, wonderful food, and nothing is too much to ask for the team. A massive thank to all! Stay at Kot Naikana-By Mountways is itself a experience. I also had a great tracking experience with Govind (Working at Kot Naikana). Tracking up to Jageswar Dham via Koteswar Village was the best part of my two days stay. I must acknowledge Dhan Singh for serving a delicious food.
