Tehri RetreatTehri, Uttarakhand
We challenge you to take your eyes off the emerald coloured Tehri Lake in the distance on a clear day. And if it happens to be cloudy, even better. The large mouthed valley in front of your cottage is sure to fill up with cottony clouds that spill in and out of the sprawling bowl of mountains like a chemistry experiment. In truth, you're as far from laboratories as you can be. In Sursingdhar, it's nature's experiments gone right.
The Tehri Retreat in the Himalayan village of Sursingdhar is the perfect remedy for jaded city souls. The first and most effective antidote is the view of the Himalayan Peaks right from your window even the second highest mountain, Nanda Devi, graces the lodge with a stunning view.
