The Kumaon is beautifully located, artistically designed, and very warmly managed. It doesn't give you a vibe of a commercially run resort. It feels like one owns this home in the hills, hidden away from the hustle bustle of city life. Local staff, local food,...More

About
Description
Nestled into a hidden ridge in the shadow of the sacred Nanda Devi Range, The Kumaon offers a private mountain retreat situated in the heart of nature. The Kumaon is located in Kasar Devi, a ridge above the More historical city of Almora, which has attracted artists, pilgrims, scholars and seekers for centuries — Swami Vivekananda, DH Lawrence, Timothy Leary and Bob Dylan, to name but a few. The Binsar Wildlife Sanctuary is a short 15 minute drive from the property. Jageshwar, an ancient and revered temple complex dedicated to Lord Shiva, is an hour's drive away. The Katarmal Surya Mandir, one of only three extant temples dedicated to the Sun, is located 30 mins away by car. Guests can walk through hamlets practising traditional agriculture; descend through forests of Oak, Cedar and Rhododendron to these ancient stone temples, or simply relax in the mountain sunshine and clean air, surrounded by birdsong and the fragrant smell of pine.

From October till March. The skies are generally clear. The views lie open and unobstructed. But then April to September monsoons have their own charm.

The rooms are impeccable. I did see a spider once. Seems unavoidable because the place is surrounded by nature and they can get in through open doors or a small hole somewhere.
