Nestled into a hidden ridge in the shadow of the sacred Nanda Devi Range, The Kumaon offers a private mountain retreat situated in the heart of nature. The Kumaon is located in Kasar Devi, a ridge above the historical city of Almora, which has attracted artists, pilgrims, scholars and seekers for centuries — Swami Vivekananda, DH Lawrence, Timothy Leary and Bob Dylan, to name but a few. The Binsar Wildlife Sanctuary is a short 15 minute drive from the property. Jageshwar, an ancient and revered temple complex dedicated to Lord Shiva, is an hour's drive away. The Katarmal Surya Mandir, one of only three extant temples dedicated to the Sun, is located 30 mins away by car. Guests can walk through hamlets practising traditional agriculture; descend through forests of Oak, Cedar and Rhododendron to these ancient stone temples, or simply relax in the mountain sunshine and clean air, surrounded by birdsong and the fragrant smell of pine.

Stayed here for 4 nights and it was one of the most beautiful places I have visited. They have kept the place exclusive with only 10 rooms to choose from. The view from the room was amazing, with unobstructed views of the Himalayas. The room and bathroom were done up really well

My sister and I had six wonderful days at The Kumaon in March 2019. Nestled near Almora, the modern aesthetic of each unit takes full advantage of the astonishing views. The property is equal to the nicest I have stayed in California, where I have resided all my 60 years!
