How Do I Get There?

Parking the car at a village (Matial) along the main road and walking up to a quaint peaceful destination crossing seasonal waterfalls, maybe chancing upon a grumpy porcupine or a snuffling, greedy wild boar along the path gives our travelers many holiday stories to take back home. A rosy cheeked village kid or a hardy gentle yokel may cross your path, normally what happens is that one follow the guide up to the house in awed silence, overwhelmed by the landscape all around. A few people just need to concentrate on keeping their breath and foot step steady.

The guides will carry all your luggage up and give you a break half way up, with tea from a flask or nimbu pani, while you catch your breathe!

Jilling Terraces is set in a clearing amidst 100 acres of untouched forests in Uttrakhand, a couple of hours away from Nainital in the South Gola range of Himalayas, with stunning views of Nanda Devi and the surrounding peaks on clear days. Chestnut House, built in 1933 by a Sanskrit scholar for his Polish doctor wife pining for the cool climes of her country, has now been converted into a warm homestay. Two large suites Buransh and Utish on the ground floor and two rooms, Kafal and Padam, with double beds on the first floor, are set off of a large family room. Each of the suites has a anteroom to loll in during the day or to let the young ones snuggle up together at night.
