a dramatic view of the
sunset has caught everyone's attention. suddenly, a
himalayan magpie zips past and as if in slow motion,
descends on to a branch of the nearby tree. and you
wonder - what to see and what to miss out on!
there's drama everywhere out here.
welcome to himalayan village sonapani!
phones in the rooms. no television to distract.
there's only music - of the cool mountain breeze.
complimented by swinging of the leaves. and the
birds flapping their wings in unison.
it is no wonder that those who experience this once,
return again and again. to a special sunrise. a
special walking trail. a special place to sit and
finish the novel one has been reading for six months
now! ...returning to moments suspended in time.
welcome to a retreat from today's fast
at times, people feel the need of a vacation
immediately after one, as they come back tired and
stressed out. hectic schedule of travel and stay
does not allow you to savour the fun of being on a
at sonapani, we promise you a completely different
experience. we promise you a place that is miles
away from everything that you would want to leave
behind, yet so close to everything that you dream
village sonapani is flanked by pine forest on the
right and rhodendron & oak forest on the left hand
side. and in between are these twelve cottages,
connected by stone pathways and separated by vegetable
gardens & flower beds.
