I was not a bird watcher until I was at this paradise called Jilling... while my stay was pretty short but I had a pleasure to watch these 2 birds, somehow they were always seen together, they fly together, eat and play together.. perhaps fight together too.. .. I loved watching them again and again at a place which has... More

If you want to feel how ace hunter Jim Corbett might have felt in nearby Mukteswar or Champawat while walking through the Kumaon hills on the tracks of tigers, this is a great place to begin. In this home stay of cosy, book-lined cottages, prefer the topmost, the Dera or Den. It's close to the Ridge, which falls steeply to... More

Steve and Parvati are the soul behind this mountain garden. As you huff and puff your way up from Matiyal to Jilling, your thoughts of how things are going to be will be frequently interrupted by the beautiful scenery of forested mountains interspersed with little villages and clouds floating by. If you are lucky you can see a couple of... More

I am almost hesitant in reviewing this place because I don't want too many people heading there. This place is genuinely my favourite getaway spot in the country and in no small measure is that because of the hosts - Steve, Parvati and Nandini (when she's around) make this scattering of cottages atop the Estate an unbelievable venue for any...

One of the few places on earth where I don't mind going back, again and again! It made me feel we had pressed some time travel button! Didn't know such places exist. Steve, his wife Parvathi and their daughter Nandini were more like our foster family! This certainly is not the place for those looking at an urban-kinda vacation. The... More

Not for the people who want city life. Its a very beautiful British colonial time cottage and no construction around it Just you and your group ! An uphill walk for around 2 ms rejunvates you and then you can relax when you reach the cottage. You can go trekking , relax , meditate in between the anture and Enjoy... More

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
