Offbeat  Uttarakhand 7N/8D:-

 A Uttarakhand holiday is the perfect  escape to beat the chaos and hot climates of the urban cities. Walking through the clouds, breathing in the fresh crisp air when all you hear is the chirp of birds, the sound of breeze, the movement of leaves as the winds gently kiss them are all the little pleasure you shall experience on the mountains. Whilst you are here you can explore countryside villages in the mountains, experience the warmth of  mountain hospitality by living in heritage Homestays, trek to explore your own hidden spots in the midst of Kumaon hills and pluck fruits and veggies in your very own farm stay. Soul Indian Journeys highly recommend  the unexplored hills and hamlets of Uttarakhand as your next holiday destination.

 Arrive in Uttarakhand from Delhi and explore your first destination Bhimtal, set in the midst of a lush forest and in the woods, you enter another world of relaxation and comfort all together away from the hustle bustle of the cities. After a couple of days at the colonial homestay in Bhimtal, head towards Nathuakhan, another hill station farm retreat in the Uttarakhand range. Here however, you live right on top of a mountain and have the entire mountain range with organic farms of fruits and veggies to your disposal. After Nathuakhan head to Naukuchiyatal, another beautiful lakeside retreat in the mountains made of natural stone and wood.

End your soulful journey by heading the Nainital, the most famous and lively hill station in the hills of Uttarakhand. Explore the markets, shops and lake there. Stay in a hotel which promotes eco tourism/similar.  Drive back to Delhi to depart and end the journey.
