Hike, Trek & Meet Like-Minded Peeps At India's First Trekking Hostel In The Hills


    If you’re feeling adventurous this summer, we have the perfect place in mind for you. Heart of Travelers Hostel {HOTs}, in Uttrakhand, is India’s first trekking hostel that encourages hiking and trekking for anyone and everyone. Get your group of amigos together and head here for some fun this summer.

    Feeling Hot Hot Hot?

    The hostel is situated in Jeolikote, Nainital and you have to trek uphill to get to it. They don’t call it a trekker’s paradise for nothing! Once you get there, the serene, calm winds welcome you with some fresh oxygen {something you really struggle with in the city} and you definitely feel invigorated. Did we mention the hostel was actually a beautiful piece of colonial architecture? The building is about 150 years old and holds a lot of historic beauty. We believe it will make for some classic horror story sessions!

    Trek This Out

    So if you’re travelling alone you will definitely meet some fellow travelers once you reach your destination. These guys welcome people from all over the world and have some kickass trekking routes and trips they organise for everyone. You can also explore the area on your own {there is a lot to explore around the property} and make your own trekking paths. Their accommodation is very reasonable. You can book a room for INR 299 {inclusive of breakfast and Wi-Fi}. They have a working café with some delish food and a 24 hour pantry, in case you want to give your culinary skills a try.

    Apart from that the hostel is situated in a beautiful picturesque space. So while enjoying a meal or two you can also admire the majestic mountains around you. The hostel also converts to a co-working space. So if you’re travelling and need to sit and work for a bit, you can head over to HOTs and get some work done.

    So We’re Saying…

    This place is ideal for the adventurous peeps who want to escape the city. It’s the perfect time to take that off you’ve been planning and explore greener pastures.
