Close your eyes and listen to the enchanting sounds of nature. Open them to gaze at snow-capped Himalayan peaks, marvelling at their magnificence. Let the quietude of the mountains wash over you. Eat delicious food cooked with fresh grown vegetables. If, like me, you are dying to get away from the cacophony of city life and discover the enthralling solitude that only nature can offer, then Casa Dream-The Resort is the answer.
Located in a small hamlet called Satbunga, near Mukteshwar in Uttarakhand, it is easily approachable from Delhi. Kathgodam is the nearest Railway Station, located around 50 km from here. The resort organized the pickup on chargeable basis(the charges were Rs. 1500 one way). It took us around 2 hours to reach. One can also drive down directly from Delhi(about 350 km). Google maps accurately guides up to the resort, and for more information, please contact the resort here.
On the way, we crossed the famous Bhimtal lake, and stopped for a while to admire its beauty. Boating is quite popular here.
The way to the resort is lined with forests on both sides. As you start climbing, you can feel the drop in the temperature and the freshness in the air. And suddenly, the view changes and the snow-capped Himalayan peaks begin to emerge in distance. That’s when you know that the resort is approaching.
When we reached, the realization struck that no pictures can do justice to this heavenly place. The location and views from the resort are to die for. 'A Place Like No Other' says the tagline, and the resort does live up to it offering an amazing experience that will keep you coming for more.
