We'd be happy to pack lunch for you and organise a local cab for these trips.
This is a day hike that takes you through a reserve forest area to the quaint British-era town of Mukteshwar. The walk is about eight kms long and takes three to five hours depending on fitness levels and the number of photographs you click en-route. We pack a picnic lunch for this walk. In Mukteshwar one can visit the PWD guesthouse that offers an expansive view of the Himalayas and the valleys below. It was a favourite spot of the legendary Jim Corbett. There is an old Shiva temple close by.
"Chouli ki Jaali" is a rock face behind the Shiva temple where local youth who are trained as mountaineers offer rappelling, rock climbing and valley crossing for a fee.
If there is time and stamina left then one can walk back to Sonapani using a different route that is all downhill, taking about three hours. Or you can hire a cab for about Rs 600-700 and drive to Sonapani in 40 minutes.
The Mukteshwar trail is complicated and requires the services of a local guide. We help train young men as guides and apart from giving them a chance to interact and learn from city people it also helps them earn some pocket money. The guide fee is Rs 400/ per day.
Trek to Kapileshwar
The 10th century Kapileshwar Temple is a three to four hour downhill walk from Sonapani. The temple is a protected ASI monument and is made of stone with beautiful and intricate carvings.
Right next to the temple is a small rivulet where one can indulge in some water splashing. The route to the temple is through a beautiful village called Mona that still retains its traditional look and feel.
After a picnic lunch the return walk can be quite taxing as it is all uphill. A local cab can be hired from about half way on the route up. A guide can be hired for the Kapileshwar walk as the last stretch is slightly complicated. One can do without a guide if one is ready to be a little more adventurous as one finds villagers on the route once in a while.
Trails around Sonapani
There are a lot of beautiful walks around us suited to different age groups, fitness levels and temperaments. Depending on how you are feeling on a particular day, walks ranging from 45 minutes to three hours can be suggested.
As we had said in the beginning: Here in Sonapani doing nothing also is a very viable option!
Having two young children of our own we understand the requirements of children and the anxieties of parents while on holiday.
From sterilising feeding bottles to feeding the child that one special dish of his/her liking when everything else fails or any such option that will make your stay more ‘at home’………we are happy to provide.
There is enough in and around Sonapani to keep children engaged. The idea is to expose them to a life without television and modern gadgets. There are picnics in the jungle, a stream, fruit to pluck, trees to climb, birds and butterflies to identify and our gentle Tibetan mastiff ‘Jhumroo’ to play with.

At the heart of himalayan village sonapani is an old natural spring. It’s water is believed to have medicinal properties and that is how this place got its name - Sonapani. ‘Sona' in Hindi means ‘Gold' and 'pani' is water. So, welcome to the land of golden water!
The story dates back to the days of the British Raj. Once, while crossing this ridge, some British army officers from a nearby cantonment happened to stop and drink the water from this natural spring. They instantly realised that there was something very special about this water.
They were so fascinated by it, that in the later half of 19th century and early 20th century, water from this natural spring was supplied to the british officers of the nearest army Garrison (Almora) on ponies and horses.
One of these officers was Captain Kushal Singh Burathoki, a highly decorated soldier of the 3rd Queen Alexandra's own Gurkha Rifles. Upon retirement, when the British offered him land of his choice for his post retiral days, he opted for this piece of land. In the middle of no where, it was indeed the charm of this water and nature's brilliant display of beauty that drew Captain Burathoki towards this land. He named it ‘Sonapani Estate' and then lived here happily thereafter, farming and hunting! The house he built, a 100 years old stone structure, now is our home.
The 3rd Gurkhas
Beyond some bald statements, such as the fact that this unit was raised in the year 1815, after the conclusion of the first campaign of 1814-1816 Nepal wars, details of the early history of the battalion is shrouded in mystery. This battalion was initially known as ‘The Kumaon Battalion' and later got the name ‘The 3rd Gurkhas'.
It was this battalion that captain Burathoki served, fighting wars from Nepal to Afganistan. His bravery was acknowledged and he was decorated with the ‘Order of British India', ‘Indian order of merit' and ‘Sardar Bahadur'. He also served as the honorary magistrate of Almora.
