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 would love to come back again and again to savor the indescribable holidays we had in this heavenly peaceful abode in the Himalayas. 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

Away from the town this place is truly heaven on earth. This is must see before you die. People who are travelers should definitely visit this place. The drive to this place is beautiful. The cottages, the over all experience, the food I must say is very different too. The view is just perfect. You will know when you wake... More

This may be a dated review, but the only thing I would write up would be WOW. You have to experience this place to admire the solitude and the wonderness of this amazing place. The trek from the parking lot to the cottage area is pretty and well worth the effort. This is an ideal place for team outings, team... More

I've been searching..for a lot of things..a long time. Being an avid traveler there aren't many areas that I've not yet explored. More than that, I'm a traveler who picks out nuances. I don't crib but I hold a strong opinion if things aren't right. I wondered if there was anything I could fault this place with & can only... More

This resort is a complete alternative to anything one has been to for holiday earlier. Several Indian style cottages, each at some meters from others, with minimum "modern" facilities, set amidst high mountains, trees laden with ripe fruits inviting visitors to pluck and eat them as much as one's tummy can take, air at its purest, staying here is an...
