  • Living at Shitlakhet for more than 7 years, the mind sees only that which we want to see. Aspects of the village and the forest that were earlier of great interest now recede to the  background as we discover more on our walks and nearby. As with any place that you stay long for, that which is interesting in the beginning becomes regular at the end.

At times like these, guest perspectives refresh memories and remind us of all that was interesting before. It may be the tents and the solar lights twinkling at night under the oak trees.

It may be the lone quiet post office that defines slow living. It may be how the pine needles form a bed on the forest floor. Or how plastic chairs are neatly arranged in a verandah that has been cared for and that which overlooks the valleys. 

Thank you Alhad for bringing these stories to life. It's been a great re-discovery.

  • Hiking along the stream is one of this region's great luxuries. To discover new flowers, martins drinking water, an old water mill or new plants, brings a sense of achievement like none other.

On these summer evenings or early mornings, go on one of these long winding hikes and discover some small waterfalls as well.

Would you like to embark on a summer hike?
  • The last 7 years have been an incredible learning experience. Since we moved to the village,  the priorities have changed. There was a sense of discovery in everything we did. There were chai-filled conversations with elders and young turks and stories on how homes and communities were built.

We learned about a low footprint life - one where your vegetable refuse was eaten by your cows, who in turn gave you milk, which in turn helped your family grow. It was a lifestyle that included a home that was insulated with mud so that you didn't have to spend on heating and cooling.

It used natural materials from a time when walls were lovingly coated with layers of mud every Diwali, and a home was not just a place to live in but a part of life itself.

It's these learnings that led us to build these earth homes. Kumaon has been a great teacher. And we hope we've done justice to her sustainable ways.

  • We have beds made from Sheesham. With thick mattresses. And soft sheets. And comforters.

But the best beds are still the ones strung between two trees.

  • There's this sense of discovery, this will to be surprised when you hike along a stream.

There may be a small pool here. Or some waterfalls there. Some fish swimming along. Or a redstart flying away.

And then there's this romance that water inspires.

  • When you live among Oaks, the rest of the world slows down.

You stop to notice their white tops reflecting the spring sun.

You sit back while they shed their old leaves in the summer sun.

You inspect their young pink leaves that feel like felt and wonder how a tree that lasts so many years has parts that are so fragile.

Oak is known for its capacity of water retention, and its leaves are known for being mulch for the crops.

But, just to sit back and watch them go about their day is a reward in itself.
