Mountain Trail Resort
Ranked #6 of 24 Mukteshwar B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed November 11, 2013

Mountain Trail in Mukteshwar remains something of a hidden gem from a western tourist perspective. We took the night train from Delhi and arrived in nearby Kathgodam just as dawn was breaking. The 4 hour jeep ride to the resort was breathtaking and hair raising in almost equal measures, but watching the hills emerge from the mist in the first light of morning tipped the balance. We were welcomed with trays of rhododendron juice and breakfast on the terrace by a team of staff with a sixth sense for anticipating our wants before we knew them ourselves.

A week at Mountain Trail with their divine dinners by the open fire, Himalayan panoramics and simple cabin living was just enough for my mind to begin to still and my breath begin to deepen. I could have stayed a month.

I stayed at Mountain trail as part of a group yoga holiday. The rooms were clean, spacious, well appointed and had their own private garden terrace. The food and service were excellent, we all felt really well cared for. A great place for yoga, walking and reflection gazing out at magnificent mountain views, but most of all for hospitality and friendliness. My thanks to all the staff.

Room Tip: All rooms ground level with great views and small private terrace.

On a yoga retreat at Mountain Trail, we were welcomed with the greatest hospitality one could imagine. No request was too much and great care was taken on the behalf of the guests. At no point did we feel they were doing their job or doing something for gratuities. Hospitality is a fine balance and Mountain Trail got the balance spot on. They helped with special food requests, personal requests and even helped me with my computer! It is a special place both in its surroundings, which are stunningly beautiful, and in its service.

We spent about a week at Mounting Trail. We were part of a group of about 20 people visiting from the UK. We all thought the food was fantastic and staff very attentive, and eager to please. Several of our party had arrived feeling quite unwell with something they had picked up in Delhi and again we had nothing but praise for how supportive and helpful everyone was in this regard. There is a lot of new building going on in the area but Mountain Trail is one of the original resorts and maintains a low profile on the horizon, seeking to keep its impact on the environment to a minimum. I would wholeheartedly recommend mountain trail as an affordable but comfortable place to stay in the area staff who care about their guests and the environment, and who can provide excellent local advice on activities and excursions.

I stayed here as part of a group and we had such a wonderful stay in Mukteshwar at Mountain Trail. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff who looked after us beautifully. We had delicious vegetarian food with a very diverse menu, interesting walks and small excursions were provided every day and we had the chance to see local musicians performing at a festival as well as one evening after supper. The atmosphere was friendly and relaxing and just the perfect place for the first week of our India trip.

Room Tip: Some rooms have indoor seating areas and a sunny terrace outside - I'd choose one of those if I...

During Rakhi holidays, we decided to go to some quiet place, someone suggest us to go to binsar, we start from Mathura for Binsar, but as we were with small kids and the hill journey was very tiring we plan to stay at Mukteshwar for one night, So we search many resorts and finally stick to Stay in Mountain Trail Resort, This resort is awesome in terms of hospitality, facility, location and service. Wether its early morrning or late at night the staff is always there to help you. Apart from the location one most inportant thing is their food. the food is really very tasty. They do have activity room where you can play TT, Carrom, etc, even they do have lots of toys for kids also . overall without any doubt you can stay in MT for endless days. After having such an amazing experience we decided not to expand our trip to Binsar, but to Enjoy the Serene and Calm atmosphere of Mukteshwar.

After reaching Mukteshwar we had to scout around for a decent acco as we had not booked in advance. We saw a couple of places but found the character of the Mountain Trail resort the most appealing and were extremely happy with the food and service. These guys know their job well. The owners also make chocolates which are simply divine. Definitely recommended for anybody visiting Mukteshwar. Must request the manager for the adventure activities at Mukteshwar....Funtabulous!! PS: Also get the booking done in advance as we didn’t get room for the second night.
