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.

Viraatkhai answers the call of adventure for outdoor enthusiasts. From the campsite, one can sign up for half or full day treks to Dasrath Ka Danda, Chaurani, Tiger Falls, Chakrata, sunrise and sunset points at an unhurried pace or test your mettle with instructor led rock climbing, rappelling, jummaring, bouldering, rafting and cycling trips. Yoga mornings or birding walks near the property are specifically designed for those who like life in a slow lane. After all, that is the whole point – to rejuvenate over a weekend or more.

Of all the activities, it is the trek to the Tiger Falls, which is loved by kids. Pink, purple and white flowers add a dash of softness to the rugged trails. The small stream-crossings are ample for adventure before one can hear the hissing sound of the falls at the end of the trek. Once you meet the white sheet of water flung over a craggy rock-scape, it’s hard to resist jumping in.

Note: As per the law of Govt of India foreign nationals are not allowed to stay in Chakrata region.
