What Makes It Awesome?

The glimpse of Himalayan peaks early morning just above the valley afar, while the barbets cut a noisy path through the mountains. It’s the time when the hamlet is in full bloom and the sun is seeking to drop the haze with its shine. A soft cold breeze strokes the black beauty Kaali, the affectionate dog at the house’s courtyard and I sip my morning chai with some cookies which Mohan- the caretaker brings to make me feel at home, completing the idyllic moment. The mid-summer mornings usually are like this at The White Peaks, located in Gagar, a quiet village in Kumaon. The two-roomed cottage nestles in the midst of magnificent oak trees and the blooming rhododendrons, is 45-minutes’ drive from Nainital and appx. 7 hours from Delhi and is the perfect getaway for city slickers to reconnect with nature. Delicious home-cooked meals made with precision and love, relaxed moments at the courtyard with family or friends, Kaali’s unconditional love, hikes through the forest, walk through narrow paths, some classic reads or just a digital detox, is what this leisurely paced travel is all about. Pro tip Spend at least three nights at the cottage. Indulge in home-cooked meals, go for treks, visit Nainital for a day or other places like Naukuchiyatal, Pangot, Bhimtal, Ramgarh, Mukteshwar, do stargazing in the night sky or just do nothing. The energy of the place and its surroundings will make sure you fall in love with it time and again and never want to leave. Enjoy an ample amount of privacy and comfort as the cottage is yours during your staycation. All you pet parents get your dogs here and experience one of the most relaxing vacay with them as the cottage is lovingly pet-friendly. The Whitepeaks Homestay lets you be and go back to the slow pace of life while you embrace nature in its purest form. The hills are calling! Nothing could be better than this. It’s a place to seek some quality time with yourself or with your loved ones and is beautifully framed in a vintage ambience by the owners, to offer a home away from home. Flower printed upholstery, hand-picked furniture, a cozy fireplace, nature patterns and spaces, the unhurried swiftness is what you’ll fall in love with here!
