Kunzum Route 501: Soulitude in the Himalayas – Uttarakhand

View from Soulitude

Have you every jumped into a water pool in the hills created by Nature? Have you checked into a lodge where a stream flows alongside – and in some ways also flows through your room? Have you woken up to the sight of snow-capped peaks? Add mountain hikes, fireplaces, bonfires, stargazing and forest picnics and we are talking a perfect getaway. It is called Soulitude.

True to its name, you can enjoy the Himalayas in solitude – and feel a certain stirring in your soul that may have gone dormant in the hustle and bustle of existence. Perched on a mountainside off the highway leading to Mukteshwar, the landscape from Soulitude dips into valleys below before rising to offer panoramic views of snow clad mountain peaks above. You can actually hear silence all around, accentuated by lack of televisions in the rooms.

And good things come in pairs. They have two properties not too far from each other. ‘Soulitude in the Himalayas’ overlooks snow-capped peaks while ‘Soulitude by the Riverside’ is built along streams, mini waterfalls and natural pools tucked away from prying eyes. Check in for a refresh.
