About the neighborhood
Gwaldam is a small village perched on a ridge,the house being 4 km outside the town. The village itself it is not of particular interest apart from a few shops,but the setting is particularly fine and Taal House itself offers one of the best and closest views of any himalayan mountain. It is an ideal base for all types of walking - from a casual stroll to serious trekking,or mountaineering. You can walk to Badhangari with its Kali shrine,Agyari Mahader and the hilltop shrine of Gwaldam Nag,and for more serious trekking Bedni Bugyal and Pindari Glacier start from here. There is an experienced guide in Gwaldam,Jawahar Singh Bisht ( 01363 - 274371) who is available for these or other treks such as Roop Kund,and we recommend that you contact him for the more serious treks. The house can be taken for a few days before a trek,and taken again on the return. There are no restaurants in the district apart from small cafes which we would not recommend. There are old temples at Baijnath and Bageshwar,suitable for a day trip,and others slightly further afield ;Kausani has a spectacular panoramic view of the himalayas and Kot Bhramari temple is close by.. Woollen goods are available in many shops, not all of it very sophisticated,but shawls and blankets are of good quality. Outlook Traveller getaways Uttarakhand is a useful publication for Gwaldam and for Garhwal and Kumaon in general.
Access
Car required
How to get there
The house is situated on the border of the Garhwal and Kumaon near Gwaldam. Approaching from the west you can come from Delhi to Dehra Dun or Haridwar by rail air or car,and then by car follow the Ganges up to Karnprayag turning off to go along the Curzon Trail. Alternatively from the east by train or car to Kathgodam,or air to Panatnagar in the Kumaon, then by car via Almora or Ranikhet to Gwaldam. Bus services are also available. The journey from Delhi will take about 12 hours ( 6 by train + 6 by car) but the latter six hours from either direction takes you through spectacular scenery in both Garwhal and Kumaon. This is a fairly remote but very beautiful district and help and advice will be given on transport details and bookings if required,as well as suggestions for further exploration of the wild and rugged Garwhal or the more pastoral Kumaon A helicopter service to Baijnath from Delhi (30 km from house) is expected to start operating in the near future.
