It was surreal..... Our group of 9 comprising of cousins and aunt landed at this resort on the 2nd of Feb 2017and till we departed on 5th Feb 2017 the experience was simply wonderful. Let me breakdown this review into different parts. 1.How to reach Mukhteshwar The best way to reach Mukhteshwar is to take the Shatabdi Express Train from New Delhi to Kathgodam. The train departs from New Delhi at 6 in the morning and the scheduled arrival at Kathgodam is 11.40 am. The journey is comfortable and would recommend this rather than driving down. Once you reach Kathgodam you need to take a 4 wheeler to reach Mukhteshwar. The total distance from Kathgodam to Mukhteshwar is around 65KM. On the way you can visit Bhimtal and via Ramgarh reach Mukhteshwar. The road is not too steep but the scenic beauty specially for those travelling for the first time is amazing. We were very lucky to have 2 wonderful people who drove us from Kathgodam to Mukhteshwar. They were Mr. Puram and Mr. Himmat Singh. Get in touch with the resort and request them to send these two persons to pick you up from Kathgodam. You are absolutely safe in the hands of these two experienced drivers and wonderful human beings. We were welcomed at the resort by 2 ferocious looking dogs but in reality they were so timid that i was pleasantly surprised. Mr. Vikram who owns the resort along with his wife and 2 beautiful kids extended a warm welcome. Mr. Vikram briefed us on his journey as to how this place was started and slowly how it got developed to what it is now. 2. About the resort The rooms are very cozy and homely.The bathrooms are neat and clean. Room heaters are provided at additional cost. The view of the mountains are breathtaking and you wish that you settle down to lead a simple and honest life there. The food is awesome and hats off to the entire staff of the resort for their sincerity and ability to churn out various types of dishes. Food is organic and some of the vegetables are grown at the resort itself. They serve you non veg food too. The sunrise and sunset is something that should not be missed. Make it a point to walk around to breath-in the fresh air and enjoy the nature. 3. Places to see: Dont miss the zero point where the views of the mountains are breathtaking. You can visit the Mukhteshwar temple, Chauthi Ki Jaali, to name a few. Naintal is closeby. The resort arranges for trekking and site seeing and suggest you take their help for the same. For shopping dont miss the Kilmora Handicraft store. You get shawls, scarfs, sweaters, caps done by a NGO nearby. Good quality stuff. 4.Precautions to be taken: In case you are travelling in winter take sufficient warm clothing to cover yourself. Take appropriate footwear and first aid box to be on the safe side. For lovers of photography and bird watchers i am sure you will go crazy. Plenty to see and enjoy. 5.Improvements: Wifi is available only at selected places. This has to improve. There is no ramp to take specially abled people on the wheel chair. This is a huge disadvantage and Vikram promised to look into this. Rooms need to have a small cupboard. I also thought the colour scheme of the hotel could have been better specially the exterior. Vikram has to improve on the branding front. But overall I must confess I will definitely go back to this place simply because of the hospitality and home like feeling. Last but not the least my sincere thanks to my cousin Shanka Roy Chowdhury who was the mastermind in organizing this trip. Three cheers to Vikram and his team...keep up the good work.
