The surreal and pristine Himalayas are just the spot to get away to from the sweltering heat! So, look no further – we’ve rounded up some seriously dreamy abodes for you to escape to this summer.
.The quintessential jungle-book like setting and all the five-star luxuries you could hope for—these are just a few of the things you get when you come to Paatlidun Safari Lodge on the outskirts of Jim Corbett National Park. Paatlidun is located in Bhakrakot, at the foothills of the Himalayas, enveloped by the scenic views of the Shivalik ranges. At Paatlidun, every day would be an experience on its own- be it the early chirruping of birds that seem obsolete in the humdrum of city life or napping on the deck getting sun-kissed.
Escape the trappings of civilization by getting lost deep in the heart of the Himalayas.

Think rolling hills, winding roads, pine forests and trees laden with apples, oranges and other fruits at this property situated in the quaint village of Peora. The architectural style of the estate is that of a farmhouse in Tuscany. Tiles and marble imported from Italy adorn the floors of the property, while graceful arches and galleries lead you to luxurious guest quarters. Outside, the verandahs and balconies are perfectly positioned to maximize the sweeping vistas of valleys, hills and the majestic Himalayas. The property was built keeping in mind Italian sensibilities and is sure to charm its guests.
The essence of this homestay lies in the experiential vacation they provide for their guests. Wah Tea Estate is the largest working tea estate in the Kangra Valley, and is tied with the homestay, where the rooms are made of mud, slate and wood to keep the eco-friendly and local style alive. The lodge is situated in a quiet part of the town, away from the hustle-bustle of the tourist spots yet close enough for day tours. And the limited Wi-Fi access coupled with keeping the TV only in the living room has been done with a view to allow guests to truly relax and enjoy the quiet serenity.
Waking up in the morning to the first glimpse of those divine Himalayan peaks is pure joy, which you can experience with ease at this boutique spa resort! Pine forests, deodar trees, apple orchards and the terrace farms are waiting to enrapture you with their idyllic charms. This property is a mountain lover’s home in Kanatal, a small hamlet in Uttarakhand. Kanatal is a kind of a place that persuades you to go around on your own to smell the succulence of fruits, feel the chill in the air and touch the purity of the verdure. Simply slip into the benignity of the mountains in any of the finely done-up 20 rooms or the suite.
Looking forward to the cool Himalayan air already?
