Just imagine you are in a traditional village house isolated from the civilization surrounded by the snow peaks of the mighty Himalayas, but amidst un-parallel luxury. . Just imagine you wake up to the chirping of so many species of birds you have never seen or heard. Come out of your room and the mighty Nandadevi is right in front of you with all it's majesty. You cherish the snow peaks with a hot cup of tea prepared to the right strength and sugar. Take a walk around and breathe in the pure air as much as you can. By the time you finish your walk, your breakfast is served(as per your choice) amidst lush yellow mustard plantation and lemon trees. After breakfast you may go visit a neighbor -- trek to the nearest village and spend some time with the villagers there over a cup of tea they lovingly make specially for you, which by the way is on a nearby hill(remember, the hill on which you are staying belongs to you). By now you must be feeling very hungry with all the treks. You will be pampered with a 4 coarse lunch set out at a location different from the one where you had your breakfast(beware of overeating -- it's so delicious)! Time for a nap....wake up to a reddish orange sky at sunset and the last glimpse of the Himalayas. By now your bonfire is ready and set out in the open for you to enjoy a drink or just gaze at the zillion starts that dot the entire sky!! By now you are totally exhausted "with happiness and a sense of fulfillment" you didn't imagine you will ever experience. It's time for dinner -- another 4 coarse treat with the usual caveat about over-eating!
That's a typical day for you in Itmenaan Estate. What do you call that? Magical, mystical, romantic or pure bliss and a life-time experience? That's what Itmenaan Estate is all about.
PS: I would do Shweta(in their Delhi office) a great injustice if I don't mention her here. She has been so very helpful and patient in organizing the entire program for us.
