Himalayan Retreat
@ Almora, Uttarakhand

A 10-acre estate in a rural Himalayan setting, a perfect escape from the hustle and bustle of the tourist crowd. A refreshing 10-minute walk through pine, oak and rhododendron forests, takes you to the estate. The construction – a stunning example of traditional local architecture that involves stacking local stones one above the other without using any cementing material in a ‘dry stack’, locally called ‘kori chinai’.

Curator's Note

A place which is by far a favorite with our guests. A perfect fit on the pocket and the senses. An hours drive from our village in Uttarakhand, a regular haunt for the parched soul
