Khali Estate is not a place suitable to every tourist. It is a place of silence, of being able to appreciate nature's beauty,of hours spent on watching innumerable birds of every hue in the colour palette, of home cooked food- served warmly by Sheru ji & Gopal da, of warm welcome by Ghanshyam ji, Kewal da & Singh ji.

Go without any expectations (Khali literally means empty in Hindi), you will be pleasantly surprised when you check out. Its inside the sanctuary, one of the few places in India where you can wander on foot inside the forest. Its a Heritage property, great leaders in the history of India have stayed there. Warm staff at Khali Estate will ensure... More

Theres no doubt abt the beauty of this place. Located deep amidst the Binsar wild life sanctuary, this place is one of the quietest places I have ever been to. You can actually hear the sound of falling leaves early in the morning! The flora and fauna here is a photographers delight. Mr Pandey, the current owner/caretaker has ensured that... More

As the title suggest it’s a beautiful property in the middle of the jungle surrounded by pine and cedar trees. If lucky enjoy sightings of deer right from your room. There are 12-14 row houses with option to choose rooms either on the ground floor or the first floor. All rooms have one window in each room facing the beautiful... More

What do you say of Khali estate but that your travel to Uttarakhand is incomplete without staying here. And you will come back in a few years, just as I did with my wife. This is tranquility for you. Whether you stay on the deck all day long, or take the village walks, or go up to zero point, or... More

We stopped one night at Khali Estate, booked here by Grand Himalayan Adventures, who arranged on very short notice a nice tour of Kumaon with short day treks from new places every day. This was an nice contrast to the nature we saw in Kausani, our first stop. We arrived here, with no idea of what we were coming to.... More
