I had planned a lazy writing weekend at Itmenaan Estate and was surprised to be greeted by a naturalist on arrival. The wildlife and bird life of the Western Himalaya is not so well known but a weekend at Itmenaan will easily turn you into an enthusiast! Instead of lazing around, I took to the hills. Barking deer, ghoral, martins, squirrels, languar, jackel, leopards are to be found in the area and an early morning nature walk turned up more than 13 varieties of bird life. The beds are the softest I have slept in for a long time, staff are more than pleasant and the food is exceptional. Faultless, elegant simplicity. Itmenaan is the best of Kumaon hospitality.
