What Oye?

Girish Menon Photography in association with One Planet Journeys present Alpine Shutter

High in the lap of the Kumaon Himalaya and nestled in the dense jungles of the Binsar Wildlife sanctuary, is a world waiting to be explored.

Quiet, yet vibrant with the sounds of the wild, it beckons you to come see the beauty of remote hills. See the sunrise colour the mighty Nanda Devi and the Trishul in shades of gold, breathe in the air laced heavily with the scent of deodar and relive the tranquil life, all over again.

Stay in an old British manor in the middle of wilderness, sample high tea and delectable Kumaoni cuisine, explore century-old ruins and a forest teeming as much with history as it is with wild boar, barking deer, birds and even leopards! Watch stunning sunsets over the sweeping, surrounding valley. After sundown, sit around a fire under star-studded heavens so close you can almost touch them. Welcome to a tryst with nature, and above all, the inner self.
