VIRAATKHAI (NEAR CHAKRATA) GARHWAL HIMALAYAS 360 kms from Delhi / 90 kms from Dehradun / 55 kms from Mussoorie / 25 kms from Chakrata Away from the dust & grime of the plains, this beautiful lodge located at a cool 6400ft and overlooking the Yamuna valley is an ideal holiday spot. For the adventure seeker there are activities galore like Rafting on the Yamuna, Tiger Falls, Bridge Slithering, Kayaking, etc.

Our Himalayan Eco Lodge is nestled in a valley with a spectacular view of the Doon Valley with views stretching as far as Dehradun and Mussoorie. This lodge is located at an altitude of 6400 ft and this ensures a cool and comfortable climate all year round. The lodge is located in Uttarakhand state and is easily approachable from Delhi (8 hrs drive) or is just a short 2 hr drive from Dehradun or a 3 hrs drive from Saharanpur. With minimum inhabitation all around this is a quiet getaway for anyone looking to remove themselves from the hustle and bustle of urban life. There are a number of short walks available all around and one gets a spectacular view of the snow clad Himalayan peaks from just a 5 min walk from the lodge.

A short drive of 25 kms from the lodge gets you to Chakrata town which has been an army cantonment from the British times. Surrounded by thick forest, this town is an ideal place to spend time exploring the interesting market (especially for handmade woolen clothing) and other small items that are usually handcrafted by the Jaunsar-Bawar tribes that inhabit this area. From Chakrata one can go on a downhill walk (2 hrs) to the Tiger Falls (the biggest waterfall in this area) and spend a couple of hours here in the pool that is formed below the Falls. For those averse to walking to the Falls, you could drive ahead from Chakrata to a point closer to the Falls to enjoy the natural beauty here.

For those looking for more adrenalin pumping activities, there is the rafting on the Yamuna that is a 45-min drive from the lodge. The Yamuna in its upper reaches here is a crystal clear green river unlike its sooty black avatar once it flows into the plains. You can enjoy a wild ride on this river through its numerous Class II and III+ rapids and couple this with other exciting water activities like bridge slithering and river crossing. Closer to the lodge, one can enjoy numerous hikes and rock sports to keep yourselves occupied during the day.

As the night sets in, settle yourselves close to a bonfire under a star spangled sky (a rare sight in our cities!!) with the lights of the Doon valley in the distance. The mood is sure to evoke the musical sensibilities even in the most “ungifted” guests and there are songs galore that are sung through the night followed by a piping hot dinner spread that awaits you. Those who prefer a more quiet evening can also soak in the mood at any of the nooks and corners in the lodge that have been created for hours of lazing around.
