There is also a cozy anteroom that has a twin bed and a work space. In the bathroom, guests will find double sinks, a spacious shower, and a toilet.

Location + Surroundings
Once a home built by a Sanskrit scholar for his Polish doctor wife in the early 1930s, this reformed property has been turned into an utterly peaceful and luxurious glamping site, made up of four different suites, as well as a side cottage. No matter where guests are on this property, they’ll have breathtaking views of the surrounding woodlands of Uttrakhand and Nanda Devi (the highest mountain peak in Uttrakhand), along with other distant mountain ranges.
Tucked away into the hillside, glampers must hike from the closest village, Matial. This is about a 45 minute to one-hour hike to reach the accommodation, as detailed in the directions. Once at this luxury camping site, guests will only be a few hours from the city of Nainital in the South Gola range of the Himalayas. Read More
