I sojourned at Misty Mountains, in Gangolihat (Pithoragarh district), in the final leg of my Kumaon trip, which I should say, was an exceptionally rewarding practical experience in terms of Himalayan views. I do not feel I ever had ‘a area with a view’ as spectacular as the view from my Rosevilla Suite at Misty Mountains. It was insane!

The Himalayas are your continuous companion in Gangolihat.
It is such a joy to wake up to the scintillating glory of the Himalayas in the morning, devote the day lounging in the garden with the clear view of the variety, and later in the evening, you can have ‘tea’ conversations searching out the window. So, if you are staying at Misty Mountains, the Himalayas are your continuous companion.
I’ve to admit that I had no clue that Pithoragarh was so close to the Himalayas, and to the borders of Nepal and China. I had heard about Pithoragarh even when I was a kid, but I under no circumstances believed that I’d want to take a look at it someday. But, I’m so grateful that I did! Most of the itineraries of Kumaon include things like Mukteshwar, Kausani and Bageshwar, which are certainly wonderful locations. But, I haven’t heard quite a few persons mention Gangolihat, which is such a paradise.

Excellent hospitality and scrumptious meals added hominess to the practical experience.

The home is run by a Kumaoni couple, Ambika and Madhur, who host their guests with good hospitality. The meals is scrumptious, in particular the dessert, which is ready by Ambika, the lady of the home. So, the practical experience of staying at Misty Mountains is additional than a resort. You do really feel a touch of hominess that you have to have as a solo traveller. Even the employees that is at your service is accommodating and useful.
I’d also like to mention that Misty Mountains resort is best for a romantic trip as nicely, as they have really a couple of packages that suit a couple searching to devote excellent time with each other. Also, you can go there with your household and pals, as they have major suites and cottages made to accommodate substantial groups.
I revelled in the wonderful views and the serenity of nature about me.
Right after traversing the area of Kumaon from Bhowali to Binsar, this secluded resort, in Pithoragarh district, with the ideal view was the smartest way to conclude my trip. I feel you ought to normally save the very best for final. My remain in Gangolihat was largely about gazing the Himalayas and savouring the serenity of my surroundings. I went out only when to take a look at an NGO referred to as Avani, which was advised to me by my hosts. It was good to understand that they make eco-friendly and locally sourced goods, such as crayons, toys and fabric. The colours they use are naturally created with distinctive flowers and plants. For instance, the flame of forest flower is made use of to build yellow and orange.

Hiked by means of Chakhbora, enjoyed maltas.
I also visited a smaller village referred to as Chakhbora, which had pumpkins and maltas to woo me. But then, I was genuinely disheartened to see the trash thrown about the village temple. It was such a wonderful setting ruined by sloppy garbage disposal by the locals. Anyway, I enjoyed hiking by means of the trees. It was good to see the farms and the calming glow of the descending sunbeams more than them.
Did I mention how a lot I relished the juicy maltas provided generously to me by a sweet Kumaoni lady? It was a single of the very best items about exploring Kumaon. You get to meet these good, warm persons along the way, who welcome you in their properties.
