March proved to be quite a hectic travel month for me. After visiting Spiti and Sikkim within a span of twenty days, I wanted to be at home. Home for me is Uttarakhand. I'm blessed to have been born in the hills and these views of the Kumaon and Garhwal Himalayas behind the swinging tree tops of deodars is one view I love to return to time and again. So I came back home for spring this time because there's no better time to explore the famous orchard belt of Kumaon around Mukteshwar, Ramgarh and Hartola. For this little escape I found a gorgeous home in the hills too where I can take my friends along for a short trip.
