Krishna Orchard Resort
Set amongst the towering peaks of the Kumaon Himalayas, this lake resort surrounded by pine trees has many interesting walks along quaint forest trails in the neighboring woods.
Jim Corbett had come to shoot a tigress here in Mukteshwar but fell in love with the place instead. Ideal for a brief sojourn, this slumbering hamlet, perched atop a high ridge soaring 7,513ft into the sky, exudes a charm unrivalled by any other place in the Kumaon hills. Take a walk amidst the conifer forests and apple, plum, peach and apricot orchards, and watch the Himalayan snow peaks play hide and seek with the clouds, or, if you happen to be there on a moonlit night, the twinkling lights of Almora far below. There’s magic in the air of Mukteshwar in and around Krishna Orchard Resort, it will stay with you, long after you’re back home.
