  • Trip introduction

    Perched atop one of the highest points in Ranikhet, this ancient mountain home will be one of the most charming stays you've ever been to. This package is ideal for those who want to get away from the noise and the crowds and steep themselves in laidback activities and local culture. You can go cycling along the winding paths of the valley, explore the narrow trails around, try your hand at organic farming, go on a night hike, or if you're in the mood for something more active, go paragliding (not included in package). For those who love nature, you can go leopard tracking and bird watching. Every evening, you'll return to this sturdy stone-hewn house, with wood carvings and traditional paintings, and warm yourself by a bonfire. And in the mornings, you'll awake under a patchwork quilt, with wide open windows gazing out upon gorgeous mountain views.

    Destination

    You'll be staying at a beautiful old stone house set in the midst of apple orchards, in a village about 17 kms from Ranikhet. From the windows, you'll be able to see the fields around, as well as the forests beyond. The house itself is from a bygone era, refurbished to offer basic comforts, and filled with old books, paintings, and wood carvings. Outside the house is a courtyard, where the bonfire is lit every evening.

    Destination highlights

    • Stay at a charming mountain home for two nights
    • Hike through oak and pine forests
    • Catch a glimpse of leopards out on the prowl
    • Go paragliding if you're looking for high adventure
    • Eat organic food, interact with villagers, and experience mountain life
