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.

Needed a few days off - no question - it had to be the Kumaon. Having been here before we know it will be a home away from home. Meeting Pushkar Isha and the staff is always nice, a reminder of simpler, kinder, empathetic cultures that still exist in our midst! The Kumaon

The Kumaon is simply put "an experience"- a fully rejuvenating and relaxing one! For me the warmth and the personal attention started right in my emails with Esha and Pushkar for reservations. Thank you both for your big hearts and your commitment to making our stay so special
