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.
