During my travels, I have stayed in all kind of hotels, guest houses, luxury resorts, and even campsite, but I rarely write about the hotels I stay as mostly my focus is on the destination & experience. I have actually said no to many a hotel FAM trips as it just meant staying in the hotel and writing about it. While I am always keen to explore around also and experience the place, interact with people and maybe chat with friends whom I have never met so far. Anyways enough of my quirks, let me share my experience of staying at Kumaon Mandal Vikas Nigam Ltd Hotels or Tourist Rest Houses as they are called.
What is Kumaon Mandal Vikas Nigam Limited?
In order to promote tourism and related activities in Kumaon and Garhwal regions, the government formed two organizations Garhwal Mandal Vikas Nigam & Kumaon Mandal Vikas Nigam Ltd. The aim of these bodies is to develop sustainable tourism activities in the area. Kumaon Mandal or KMVNL as it is commonly called is responsible for developing tourism infrastructure in the Kumaon region. The KVMNL operates tourist rest houses in all major tourist attractions in Kumaon. Besides owning & operating tourist rest house KMVNL is also engaged in organizing treks to in Kumaon to different places of interest like Pindari Glacierand even facilitating, the revered Kailash Mansarovar Yatra for pilgrims.
As part of there offerings, the KMVNL owns and operates Tourist rest houses in various parts of Kumaon. This blog post is about my experience of staying in these properties and the reasons to stay in Kumaon Mandal Vikas Nigam Ltd hotels.
