Escape Mukteshwar is our family home in the hills or as my grandson Ranvir calls it 'My Mountain home' dedicated to escape the everyday rumblings of life.

We welcome you to experience what we have been enjoying at Escape for a decade in nature, great food and peaceful silence.

Please treat it like you would your own home.

The space
Escape Mukteshwar is on top of the Parwada village mountains, tucked between forests in the back and farms in the front of the house.

Mukteshwar, Uttarakhand, India

Escape is a place to escape and relax.

Come and stay with us if you want to disconnect from the mundane and connect with nature. Plenty of hikes starting right from our door into the fields down below of the Deodar/Oak forest right behind us. A hike into the deodar forests

You can also drive us to the Mukteshwar Maharaj temple and hike up to Chauli ki Jhaali, the beautiful cliff face with a 400ft drop and beautiful panoramic views of the valley.

You can also drive down to the Dhaari village and hike up to the Dhaari waterfall and in the summer take a dip in the pristine waters, a little chilly, but well worth it. If you go outside of the tourist season (May-June) you might be the only people there and the perfect time to enjoy this place.

Within a 1-1.5 hours drive you can also visit Nainital, Bhimtal, Naukuchitatal lakes to enjoy water sports, boating, local cuisine etc. Other famous destinations nearby are Sitla, Ranikhet, Binsar, Almora etc all with 2-4 hours driving.
