Resort, Cottages Shitlakhet, Uttarakhand

The Forest Stay

Nidhi Sharma Sat, 06 Apr 2019

If you want to be mesmerised by the Mountain view all around, this is the Property for you. This resort is located in the middle of a Forest. Great for Nature Lovers & Bird-Watchers be it Families or Couples. There is ample space in the Resort to walk around. Cottages are spread out, have spacious Balconies and all of them have a view of the Himalayas. Cottage Interiors are simple, comfortable with Heaters & Tea Coffee Maker and clean washrooms.

The restaurant is done up beautifully with paintings on the Local people and terrain, a Games Room, a quaint Library with Wooden Ceilings

This will be super memorable if you plan to beat the summers at this stay with the backdrop of singing birds

YuYIII Highlight

Zuni, the Little adorable Traveller

Little Zuni is an Indian, living in UAE with her parents. She describes her travel experience in quite an innocent & mesmerising way. This is a beautiful example of how Travel can touch Children and broaden their outlook, personality & open them to experiences. We were quite in awe of her. Truly, Children are Divine. This is for a lot of us parents to realise that along with good schooling, Travel is also an essential part of a Child's education in today's day and age.

Expert review by Nidhi Sharma

Experience at the property
I was transported into a different land. The forest vibe is very palpable and made me come alive. Every night's sleep was so peaceful and cozy. It gets quite cool irrespective of the the weather and the Room heaters were a welcome
Highlight of the property
Has to be balconies and the view. You can sit for hours just gazing at the Mountains or the stars. Listen to birds tweet in the morning. So refreshing. Makes life so Beautiful
Things that can be improved
Last 2.5 KMs to the property is untarred & the forest department is constructing a better stretch. We were told that it will be done in 2 weeks. We enjoyed through this stretch laughing. The Property sends its Vehicle to help to this stretch in case you are not confident as a driver
Please don't follow Google Maps if you are driving down. Google Maps shows another route through Almora which is not Preferrable
Suitable for
If you are a Travellers not a Tourist, Couples, Families who are nature lovers, Peace seekers, Meditators. Can use this property as a base to explore and see other surrounding Kumaon Areas
