Itmenaan Village Walks

The Itmenaan village houses are located in the epic and isolated scenery of the Kumaon Himalaya. Each house has been converted from an original Kumaoni home; although some concessions have been made for western tastes, they are extremely simple and very much devoid of creature comforts. Each house should be seen as a simple room for the night which provides a jumping off point to explore the dramatic scenery on foot. Your walks in Kumaon will be accompanied by a guide, who will share the local knowledge with you and will assist in mingling with the communities - you may share a cup of chai with the local elders, pay respect at a temple, or just soak in the stunning scenery while traversing the hills and valleys. As interests and capabilities vary, the walks are customised according to your needs. The simpler properties in Thikalna, Ganghet, and Jhankarsem will lead you up to a final stay at the attractive Itmenaan Estate, which is comfortable upgrade on the previous properties, and a truly alluring place to relax and unwind.
