| himalayan village sonapani | events@sonapani | about us


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!

no 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 world.

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 holiday! 

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 of.

himalayan 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.
setting the context
on top of a ridge, overlooking almora and with a magnificent 175-degree view of the himalayas is himalayan village sonapani.

situated at a height 2000 meters, sonapani hosts an orchard of apricot, apple, plum and peach while oak, rhododendron & pine jungle surround it from all around. 

spread over 20 acre of land, we involve ourselves with organic farming, growing a variety of vegetables and pulses with plans afoot to introduce cultivation of medicinal and aromatic plants. 

geographically and politically, sonapani is located in district nainital (uttarakhand) and is very close to almora. and the nearest, well known hill destination is mukteshwar, just 8 kms away.
