My mukteshwar trip became so memorable just because of this marvellous stay at this location. It's not a resort, it's another home. Everything from the bedding, location to food was just perfect. Me and my partner extended our stay .... actually we never wanted to leave it is that soothing, serine and happening (of course, the first thing we used to see after getting up were Himalayas .... you don't get to wake up next to Himalayas everyday). We would like to visit again to enjoy the BBQ and Bon fire

The location is amazing. This is a great family-friendly place with great food with a stunning view of sunrise. Thanks for the wonderful holiday Mr. Kamal Mehra. We'll visit again.
Panchachuli House is a recent addition to the hospitality scene in Mukteshwar. Nestled on a hillside off the main road, it is a quaint little place offering a fantastic view of the hills in front and the Panchachuli range on your left.
The large glass window dominates the wall in all the 4 rooms that are available and you can enjoy the sunrise even as you lie in your bed.
The place is small and well managed by Kamal with his family and a small band of staff. Food is homemade as per your preference.
This is not a hotel in name nor in its spirit and Kamal ensures that the smallest needs of his guests gets his personal attention.
The philosophy of the owner-manager is apparent in the organic farms, hothouse, rain water harvesting, use of solar energy and local materials that are used in the construction, and the passion continues in every aspect of the operations.
It's an ideal place for a few days of peace and quite with some local attractions including a wonderful hidden waterfall to visit if you are so inclined.
Do however keep a torch handy should you want to go exploring after dark.
Warmest homestay experience in the Hills. Extremely Clean. Magnificent view. Family friendly. Couple friendly. Singles friendly.
There is a reason why Panchachuli House is not called a resort or a hotel. It is as comfortable and welcoming as our home.
4 of us decided to head to Mukteshwar for the 26th Jan weekend. Throughout the journey Kamal ji guided us the route to take and in the battle between Google Maps and him, Kamal ji was the clear winner.
The house is a little off the road which makes it ideal for solace seekers. The house is made up of rock and wood which gives it an earthy vibe. There is a lawn, an outer drawing room, an inner drawing cum dining room, 3 bedrooms which can accommodate 3 people each and 1 bedroom which can accommodate 5 people. Each room has an attached bathroom with running hot water. They have an open kitchen which is accessible at will. In fact some of us exchanged recipes with the cooks out there.
The two vital helps out there Chandan and Rakesh ensure that there is no issue with your comfort. Each night we had the option of sitting by a bonfire. Along with the bonfire Kamal ji arranged for roasted chicken and pakodas.
In the morning we saw the sunrise and calling it picturesque would be an understatement. On day one there was fog but on day two when it cleared up the entire Panchachuli range was visible which was grand and completely laden by snow. Besides the stay you can take a walk till Mukteshwar temple and the cliff point which provides another scenic sight. It is around 3 kms away.
In case you plan to head to the hills and find some peace with a generous sprinkle of visual delight then do not think twice, pack your bags and head to Panchachuli house.
Had booked the entire resort for the new year with a group of friends from Delhi. After crossing Haldwani, we had to make an abrupt stoppage as our vehicle broke down in the middle of nowhere. The owner of the resort called up, and to our surprise arranged a couple of vehicles in the midnight to pick us up. Now that's the kind of hospitality which Mr. Kamal Mehra can provide.
The resort is located in Mukteshwar and Mr. Kamal can guide you through every inch of the route once you reach Haldwani. The location is spectacular and provides you a 360 degree view of the valley. The food is excellent and rooms are very well done. Kamal maintains the standards of the resort as good as any first class resort you may have visited.
Cheat code: Don't forget asking for Tandoori Chicken.
