A home away from home, The Kumaon Exotica has been a story of unearthing a home intended to offer a cozy retreat for those looking to take a break away from the hustle & bustle of cities.

Nested in the heart of the Kumaon hills, our home is located at Jangalia Gaon, a quaint hamlet near Bhimtal, Uttarakhand. The majestic view of the landscape adorning the place and witnessing the native Himalayan birds flocking the place makes it a beautiful memory to cherish forever.

The space
Located in the lake district of Nainital, The Kumaon Exotica is located 8 km from Bhimtal & Naukuchiatal. What makes the space all the more attractive is the remoteness it offers at just 20 mins away from the more frequented centre of Bhimtal.

The Kumaon Exotica is close to a hub of adventure activities happening around. The locality is known for paragliding with the take-offs just 3 kms away from our home. Besides, enthusiasts also have the option to ride ziplines and ATVs, which is conducted at a space 20 mins from our space.

Bird lovers are in for a treat. The place is home to native Himalayan birds as you witness them sitting perched on a tree and fly past you. Ardent bird lovers have the option of visiting Sattal and/or Pangot which are known for active bird watching activities.

Our home has 4 private rooms for accommodation. Each of them house a queen size double bed along with facilities to put an extra single bed, meaning a group of 12 can stay comfortably.

The space is ideal for families and groups alike with the option to book the entire space or the private rooms individually through the links below

Location

Bhimtal, Uttarakhand, India

We are located in a village flanked by dense woods. The neighbourhood is a hotspot for native birds who chirp and flock through their way across.

Jangalia Gaon is known for farming activities which is the main source of livelihood for the locals. One can walk through the farms and purchase available vegetables of choice at reasonable rates. Isn't it enticing to have preparations made out of fresh produce handpicked by you?
