RANIKHET

The place for big family holidays, artistic retreats and quiet for intellectual musings....

CAMPING IN UTTARAKHAND BRINGS TO YOU AN OLD STONE HOUSE FOR ALL THE TIMES YOU FELT ARTSY BUT LACKED THE INSPIRATION.

A century old stone house with wood carvings and colorful paintings overlooking a village of blue windows and smokey chimneys, Daankudi is the epitome of peaceful rural life rich in culture. Be it paragliding across the beautiful valley or hiking in the woods to catch up with Sadhus, the camp is like a magicians hat, full of pretty surpri ses. Come here during the festivals of Holi and Dusshera to be one with the culture as humble villagers are more than happy to include you in their festivities.

12 kilometers from Ranikhet on the edge of a dense oak forest Daankudi is the highest house in the valley. Equipped with common washrooms the camp can accommodate 20 guests in the heritage house, while camps can be set up on demand. A sundeck under the mango tree overlooks the village below as the hills and their silhouettes extend across the horizon. The courtyard is a fine place for chilling with Ruby the resident canine and also our spot of choice for the evening campfire and rum sessions.

GLIDE OVER A PAINTING, PICK FRUITS, ANGLE- DAANKUDI OFFERS A RAINBOW OF TO-DOS!

Para-glide over a picturesque valley. Bike through the oak forest to meet a hundred birds and maybe catch the glimpse of a leopards tail. If adrenaline is not your game, get your rod and go to Kosi for angling and a dip. Or maybe navigate through cattle and goat for lunch at a village home and follow it up with a visit to the orchard for fruit picking. Whatever be it, make sure sure you’re here during Holi or Dusshera for that is when the place really comes alive and the bonhomie is contagious!
