Being at Jhaltola, is an experience - a soul revitalising stay in suites and cottages set amidst a 1000 acres of solitude. The location offers unmatched seclusion, home like food, a panoramic Himalayan view, and tens of walks among forests rich in flora, and fauna, including over 150 recorded bird species that make background music while you soak in the silence.
Ambika and I, have made this our home, and we love to share this blessing with offbeat travellers and nature lovers.
The location of the retreat was selected after almost a decade of travelling in the Kumaon Himalayas. It has been designed in a way that helps the guest in making most of the fabulous location. We treat our guests as our personal guests and take great pride in the home like food and the simple genuine hospitality that we offer. If you are looking for a serene holiday with your loved ones, it will keep you coming back for more.
Guests can stay in one of the suites or cottages at our retreat.
Общение с гостями
We stay within the retreat and make it a point to spend time with each of our guests. You would see Ambika's touch in the homemade pickles and preserves, the simple home like spread and the gardens while Madhur will make sure that your arrival, stay and departure is as comfortable and well informed as possible.

Guests would do well do carry good walking shoes to enjoy the place to the maximum. The nearest neighbour is a kilometer and half away and the nearest market 10 kms, so do carry things that you might need like medicines and personal use items.
- we have suites and cottages of varying sizes; get in touch to select best option.
Ambika and Madhur are the owner managers of this little piece of heaven. They live at Jhaltola amidst a 1000 acres of solitude and have made this their life. It is an alternate lifestyle that suits them plenty.
Ambika is a passionate nature lover, amateur birder and a treasure trove of information on all and sundry from the local flora fauna, culture and food to world literature and music.
Madhur is a dreamer on four days of the week and a doer on the other three. His interest areas are entrepreneurship, poetry and being with nature (not in any particular order). He likes interacting with the amazing diversity of guests that end up at their extended homestay.
They stay onsite with their 1 year old daughter - Suroohi, their dog - Rags, and their staff led by the ever smiling Raju.
