In the fruit belt of Kumaon stands the Hartola Retreat, cut off from the noise and nuisance of modern lifestyles to offer travelers the perfect place to purify senses and renew the energies of their minds, bodies and soul. Hartola is a village in the Kumaon area, facing the Trishul glacier, and nestled among the Himalayas at 8000 feet above sea level. To reach this panoramic cottage, for a brief while you need to abandon highways and cemented roads and travel on country road amongst breathtaking beauty of the mountains and a glacier that is a testimony to our frailty. A forest reserve in the vicinity, mineral water from natural springs and colors and sounds of nature that stir the imagination are the activities that are on offer here.

Meet Rohit and Mitali, the couple who left the urbane life to take on the ubiquitous stillness of Hartola and claim it as their own. Their 5 bedroom cottage in the mountains of Kumaon is surrounded by orchards of plums, apples, strawberries while the village Hartola has a carpet of lush green grass. It offers the most beatific aspect of life, as birds sing with abandon, a river which the villagers believe to be the Ganges flows gleefully, fruits grow organically with their natural taste intact and the trees and forest are alive 24 x 7 with a life of their own. You will take pleasure in a mist of pure air and savor meals that keep you healthy.

Don’t come to this Kumaon cottage looking for malls and shopping arcades, instead come here looking for some memorable moments in the forests! Don’t come here looking for smells of burgers and fries instead come here to fill your senses fragrant aromas of ripe fruits! Don’t come here looking for LED displays instead catch the fantastic and natural colors of the flora and fauna! Don’t come here to be surrounded by crowds instead come here to soak in the solitude! Don’t come here for a modern holiday; instead come here to enjoy nature in its glory!
