“Best Stay at Best Location”

I got the reference about Himadri Guest house from a friend. Well, I was lucky enough to travel when it was about to snow & I really enjoyed in plenty of snowfall. The best part of this place is, Its surrounded by nature & Himalayas. I have visited each and every place in Uttarakhand, but USP of this place is, from left to right "full view of Himalayas", the view which is very rare. Its a unexplored and quite area. The ease to getting the place was really nice, just connected to main road. I have even visited this place in Summers & the place is pretty cool.

Regarding the Quality of stay,one cannot question but apart from all the other amenities, I was really impressed by the wooden polished floors, and walls.

An another great point to mention is, "When I woke up in the morning, I saw the amazing view of Golden Himalayas bathing in rays of sun, from my bed itself"

Regarding the food, I ordered & it was good enough & even I had option to cook my own food as kitchen was available. My next long stay will include this utilization ;) :P

Mr Gajendra Pathak, owner of the Guest house & Staff were very much friendly & being a nature lover and environment activist he introduced us to this unexplored area in such a great way, that I have recommended my many friends to this place. I really like the location of this guest house, as I treated this as an mid way boarding & visited some places like kausani, Dwarahat, Birth place of Pt Govind ballabh Pant (Around 8-10 Kms from Himadri Guest House) & returned back at Night.

I trekked through near by areas n forests & really it made my trip complete even the overated hill stations cannot be compared with this place.
One can reach Himadri Guest House, Shitlakhet, Almora either through Almora or through Ranikhet. Its Mid way between both (around 35Kms from both Almora & Ranikhet). Do not forget to eat chhola and aalu at small shop in Kosi (While coming from Almora)
To summarise, "If u are a nature lover & want to visit himalayas & a very peaceful place, then u must visit this place once"

It was nice stay in Himadri.... The view of himalayas can't explain in words. At morning himalayas totally covered with golden and at night sliver was spread all over.
feel fabulous there, on the lap of nature . . Peace and greenery made u refresh and recharge.. Over there u forget all ur tension... When u open ur room door clouds welcomes u.. nd touched ur feet.. at that time u feels that u r in heaven...

Facilities of himadri just like home. U can't feel that u r out of ur home. Bedding, blankets, food, furniture , I just love the wooden floors, and interior design was very impressive . ..
On bed having a cup of tea and chola which made by chandan made ur day more beautiful..

“Himadri Guest House at Shitlakhet- "Truly the lap of nature"”
Reviewed 10 November 2014 for a stay in June 2014

Was tipped about the Himadri Guest House in Shitlakhet by a friend from Almora who promised Shitlakhet will be a welcome respite after the rush we had seen in Nainital in the peak summer season. So we drove for about four hours from Nainital bypassing Almora to reach Shitlakhet. At first it seemed a bit too cut off but we soon realised that it was really worth it. A sleepy little village with just about 20 odd houses, a small market, flanked by a beautiful valley and surrounded by untouched forests. The guest house is situated overlooking the valley and has a lovely terrace which provides a picturesque view of the Himalyas. The two rooms in Himadri are absolutely new, fully furnished and very tastefully done. For the ones who like to have fun cooking their own food, each room comes with an attached kitchen. Above all owner Gajendra Pathak and staff are very warm, hospitable and prompt in their services. And yes Himadri also has a solar powered heating system so you have a running supply of hot water 24X7. The best part of our trip was visit to nearby orchids where we found just about everything from apples, oranges, peaches to strawberries. The nearby forest provides excellent environs for trekking and bird watching. Overall we had a truly unforgettable time in Himadri with my family. Must go for people who are seeking some solace and tired of going to crowded and over-rated hill stations :-)

This property is brand new and simply excellent. The rooms are very big, clean and brand new. Bathrooms have all necessary amenities including heater and running hot n cold water. They offer a living space with your room and brand new LED television with satellite channels. They also offer a separate personal kitchen with all facilities including cooking gas and utencils and pressure cooker and cutlery. Above all the terrace and the view. The whole range of himalaya above calm and quiet serene jungle. The sunrise above himalaya you can see from your bed. Clean and crystal clear. No obstruction. Excellent property at very reasonable price. Probably the best in sitlakhet.
