Riding through the hills of Uttarakhand , I was intrigued when we got to the approach road of Himalayan Village. The narrow pathway leading up was barely wide enough for a car , but definitely makes for a lovely walk passing through pine forests along the way. Beautifully set up in the midst of the forest , Ashish and his... More

Near Satoli, this is a beautiful place.We got here after staying in Nanital & wished we had reached here much earlier. Food is great, location is excellent and staff is very friendly.

a dramatic view of the sunset has caught everyone's attention. suddenly, a himalayan magpie zips past and as if in slow motion, descends on to a branch of the nearby tree. and you wonder - what to see and what to miss out on! there's drama everywhere out here.

A short 2 days trip to golden waters was an exhilarating experience. Driving down from Gurgaon was a real fun. Stopped at apple, plum & pear orchards was really good to savour our taste buds. Would definitely like to come again & again with the family. Would recommend everybody to experience this trip. Playing football in the hills was again... More

We had a short but wonderful stay. It is a very charming place and the owners Ashish and their family made it even better. In the hills it's a great place to visit. Wonderful food, using local and natural ingredients. Go for the treks - long and really fun. Will be back - definitely

I salute Ashish to have conceived and created this amazing place. Regarding ratings if there was something above excellent, I would have given that too. Added highlight is pet of the family - jhumroo who became... More

While most of the amazing expiriences are mentioned by others, this placed taught me a lot. Our long discussions with other guests along with Ashish Ji, made us thing about starting a business of our own, which we actually did. The overall expirience at Sonapani, the lifestyle of the family of the owner of Himalayan Village (Ashish Ji) changed our... More

We were very impressed with the views all around - it was brilliant to see like minded people all around - we could immediately connect with people around, in fact we could make friends... More
