Nutella Pancakes, Scenic View and Solitude: The Ramgarh Retreat Has It All

If you are a sucker for hills and bored of the usual spots like Mcleodganj, Dharamshala and looking for solitude, then you are sold for this already. Suggest you to save up this monsoon and make the most of the long weekends coming your way by planning a visit at The Ramgarh Retreat, located about 150 km from Delhi.

Home Away From Home

The idea of a cute cottage nestled on the top of a hill, secluded from the hustle bustle of the city is enough to get majority of us pumped. The minute you lay your eyes at the entrance, you know you’re going to feel at home within minutes. A sprawling garden with blooming flowers, the view looks nothing short of a picture from a fairytale.

The Ramgarh Retreat has 7 rooms with 2 separate categories called Himalayan Room & Garden Room. I’d suggest you to opt for the room with a private balcony overlooking the hills solely coz of that breathtaking view it offers! What’s more? A movie library, a fancy collection of books to board games to keep the guests entertained. We hear about a glass house coming up this December with an open air cinema for movies coupled with barbeque! Enticing enough?

Kumaoni Food, Waffles & More

I’d strongly suggest waking up at 5 am and watching the sunrise at The Ramgarh Retreat. This accompanied with a cup of hot tea and Coke Studio on the playlist is pure solace.  Enjoy a hearty breakfast comprising of waffles, live egg station and several other dishes. The cook has a knack in local Kumaoni Cuisine and dishes out some fabulous food with a very warm smile. Right from home style food to those midnight greasy Chinese cravings, he can prepare it all.


A great time to visit this resort is during peak summers to escape the scorching heat. Catch a Shatabdi train till Kathgodam station and enjoy the drive till The Ramgarh Retreat. The gorgeous view plus light snacking on the way would be fun! Be rest assured to get your heart melted by the warm hospitality of the owners. Aditi Ramdev, a 25 year old from Delhi and her daddy won’t mind joining you if you have a rocking 90s playlist and a great sense of humor. In another news, she also bakes some fabulous desserts, and dons the chef’s hat at times to cook for the guests!
