Himalayan Eco Lodges
Himalayan Eco Lodges is an innovative vacationing option for those who resolutely love the outdoors. We offer an inimitable setting that is still not prominent on the travel map and packed with a variety of activities that make you align with nature. Imagine a cosy warm cottage or luxury tent with the backdrop of snow-capped mountains silhouetted against a fiery orange sunset, a stream gurgling by and abundant nature trails close at hand. Add to that, the local flavour of hospitable villages, traditional cuisines, trained instructors for activity packed days suitable for all ages, and creature comforts that don't weigh on you to become Robinson Crusoe.
Beautiful & Unspoilt Locations Where Experiences Make Memories
Majkhali Woods is the latest lodge in our chain of mountain lodges and camps in the Himalayas. The setting is exceptional and sure to satisfy nature lovers and those who have an affinity for active vacations. Situated in a quaint spot in the Majkhali village, very close to Ranikhet golf course, the property is tucked inside a mixed forest with uninterrupted views on all sides.
We challenge you to take your eyes off the emerald coloured Tehri Lake in the distance on a clear day. And if it happens to be cloudy, even better. The large mouthed valley in front of your cottage is sure to fill up with cottony clouds that spill in and out of the sprawling bowl of mountains like a chemistry experiment. In truth, you’re as far from laboratories as you can be. In Sursingdhar, it’s nature’s experiments gone right.
The gurgling Alaknanda River, slips and slides over boulders, leaving in its wake a series of frothy rapids. Hemmed along, is a forested mountain on one side and the sandy stretch of Camp High 5 on the other. The village of Jayalgarh in Uttarakhand, where the camp is located, is blessed with bright green fields of fresh vegetables, the background score of the Alaknanda and only one campsite along its edge, keeping it pleasantly secluded from the rafting action on the over-treaded banks of Rishikesh, downstream.
Looking down the plunging Doon valley at the Lego-like village homes in the distance might make you feel like Goliath for a second. But as soon as you turn the gaze upwards, mighty Himalayan ranges plonk you back in a David-esque place – tiny, insignificant and no match to the stalwarts. The camp-cum-lodge at Viraatkhai has been christened ‘Room on the Roof ‘as an ode to the author, Ruskin Bond, who lives in the folds of the same region. Also, here you are bound to feel like the King of peaks and crags of the mountains. If you’re an out-of-action King, that’s even better. You can just sit and relax.
As brochures and blog posts go, one would think that skimming over freshly snowed mountains on skis is the hunting ground for hardened adventurers, and the only high-point of Auli. No doubt that this Himalayan hill-town is a paradise for skiing and sledging enthusiasts, but in truth, it is an all-year-round destination. Apart from ski slopes, make Himalayan High, your base for exploring the religious shrine of Badrinath, UNESCO Heritage Site, Nanda Devi Biosphere Reserve and the famed Valley of Flowers National Park during different times of the year – when the snow clad hills will not be the only highlight.
This is where all stereotypes of natural beauty converge and yet, it’s nothing like anything you would have seen before. The raw beauty of the Himalayan villages, gurgling rivers and towering peaks, are truly humbling. Kund is a small village in the Mandakini River valley, where the Himalayan Eco Lodge, Verdant Valley, offers a fun-filled holiday for all ages. If switching off from city-life and exploring the outdoors with the entire family is on the agenda, this is the place for you.
Explore the lovely nature trails in walks around the campsite which will come alive with vast mustard fields. A walk by the bridge next to the lodge, will take you past the cosy pastoral houses of ever smiling locals. Camp Racchu’s Den is a great base for Active Vacations, with several spots for rock & rope activities, stream walk, river rafting, swimming in the natural pools, birding & much more.
Lansdowne or Lansdown is a town and a hill station situated on the Kotdwar - Pauri road at a height of 1,706 m in Uttarakhand, India.
