If you are an ardent nature lover then Jilling Estate ought to be on your bucket list. However if you cannot stay without creature comforts such as running hot water, TV and wi-fi then this place is certainly not for you. I stayed five nights at Jilling Estate, and this is easily one of my most memorable experiences. The estate... More

It was a sudden weekend trip with my college friends. We reached Matial around 8 o clock in the morning. From there, we had to trek around an hour to reach the cottage. It rained the day before, so it was quite risky to trek the path. But the place worth it. I never been such a quiet place. The... More

I stumbled upon Jiling Estate on internet and felt hooked. So, when we planned for a short trip few weeks later just decided on this place. It simply felt like paradise. The Estate owners are Mr Steve Lal, an ex-Air Force pilot and his lovely wife Parvati Lal. Both of them are ardent nature lovers and very warm hosts. Their... More

Ok, first things first, the cottage you choose at Jilling can really make a huge difference to the holiday you have here. Choose the oldest cottage that overlooks the hills, a 5 min walk higher up from the Lall's house. This quaint cottage is not only a class about the rest, but it also has a spectacular view and history... More

If you are the kind of traveller used to buffet meals, cable television, wi fi and a swimming pools, read no further. If you are the kind of traveller who likes to connect with nature ,the hills and breathe fresh clean air without being bombarded with music , then read further . The first pleasant experience is with Mr Steve... More

A place you would not want to write about in Trip Advisor - you would never want it to be commercialized or touristy or hell, even be discovered. You can read more about the surrounding calm and beauty, homely and tasty foods, tender loving care and a soulful stay in the previous reviews. We were lucky to find snow just... More

This review is coming in a few months late. Apologies for being lazy! We stayed here in Oct’14. I've been wanting to come here for while and finally made in Oct. First the climb – yes it is steep, but take it easy and you’ll get up to the estate in 45 min. Our daughters (aged 7 and 11) rode... More

I doubt the title above... I think thats HEAVEN!! You need to have a moderate level of physical fitness and excessive yearning to live close to the clouds. Get up in the morning with a view of the himalayas and go to sleep peeking at the twinkling stars from your window.... nothing comes in the way. The food cooked in... More

We had visited this place last year. If you want to relax your body and soul then this is the must go place to visit. You have to climb up the hill for at least 600 metres to 1000 metres app. to reach to your cottage. Though it's bit tough to reach there if you are unfit, you will get... More
