  • Trip introduction

    This unique package allows you to enjoy the gorgeous mountain scenery and greenery of Chopta, with all the comforts of a lodge stay.

    Every day, you'll set out to explore the area around Sari: a sunrise trek to the mirror-like Deoriatal, a hike to the rolling hills of Chopta, and onwards to Tungnath, the highest Shiva temple in the world. If you're up for it, you can even take on the climb to Chandrashila Peak, which is almost 13,000 feet high.

    NOTE: The property is located about 500 metres above the main road in Sari village. You will have to walk uphill for about 10-15 minutes to get to the lodge.

    You'll be staying in a lodge in Sari village, which is a great base for all kinds of exploration and activities in the area. You'll be able to go for walks in the village, ramble around the property, or enjoy some quiet time reconnecting with nature and with a slower pace of life.

    The property is set on a hill, with mountain views all around. The rooftop library and lounge area is perfect for a few hours of reading, and there are scenic spots all around for yoga or meditation. You'll stay in a traditional Pahadi-style room with an attached modern washroom. The room is simple, with a double bed, wall shelves, a rack, and a heater.
