Our team will be available daily to take care of our guests, and we endeavor to ensure that our guests have a comfortable and memorable stay

The neighborhood: Watching the sun rise over the mighty snow covered peaks, or an afternoon beer sitting under the bright sun, lounging on our sun beds, makes our villa a blissful experience. The neighborhood is a beautiful, non commercialized mountain village experience, with few residential cottages of Vimoksha Valley II. If you are lucky, you may hear the leopard growl, sometimes at night, from the forest below. The place is a heaven for Artists, Photographers, Bird watchers, and Star gazers

Getting around: Our property is located near village Majkhali, Ranikhet, at Vimoksha Valley II township, and Vimoksha Resort. The property is easily accessible by car, and we have a dedicated parking bay for our guests. Private and Shared Taxi's are available from Majkhali to Ranikhet. A ride in a shared taxi to Ranikhet costs only Rs. 25 per way

Other things to note: Our property is located at Vimoksha Valley II, which is on a village road connecting the villages of Majkhali and Digoti, approx 2 KM from the main highway. The village roads are narrow (one way) roads, partly metaled, partly brick mortared, having sharp hair pin bends. The roads are in perfect shape and all cars can easily go on them, and in a way the drive up to the cottage is fun and a bit adventurous. The car goes upto our villa plot, however, the entry to the villa is located about 20 steps down from the parking area, which have to be walked down
