Lovely setting. Gorgeous views of the forests, hills and the Trishul and Nandaghunti peaks fro the well appointed, eco-friendly rooms. Superbly managed solar power system. Delicious food with fresh, local produce. Warmth and knowledge of a couple that has embraced the mountains, and is not just running a resort. Bonfires, hot soups, long walks through the forests, looking out for... More

Had just come back from a visit to Kumaon and remembered this place which I visited last Dec. Forgot to write a review then.

With chalet like rooms, facing the Himalayan peaks, we saw Trishul after a day each of mist and rain. Given that the monsoon wash offers some of the clearest views possible, it was lovely to be able to see this straight from the bed.

The place is unique. Nestled among mountains, this resort is refreshing. The resort is completely in sync with nature. The rooms are tastefully decorated. Food is great. Preetam and Pallavi are warm and gracious hosts. Do not be put off by the journey and effort required to reach this place. It is worth in every way. Go for Trishul rooms... More
