In the foothills of the Himalayas, The Old Bungalow 1830, and The Writer's Bungalow - 1860, are located in the fruit basket of the Kumaon region. These heritage structures once housed the British and Indian officers as well as their wives who traveled on horseback and palanquins. Many writers and thinkers have been drawn to the beauty of Ramgarh : Sr Aurobindo and Narain Swami established ashrams, Rabindranath Tagore wrote some of his major work-even contemplating founding Shantiniketan here; Mahadevi Verma made it her home and some of India's leading industrial families continue to have sprawling orchards. From May to September the orchards by the Writers' and Old Bungalows hang with Apricots, Plums, Peaches, Pears and Apples. Ramgarh makes an ideal base for long walks or drive to discover the surrounding areas of Mukteshwar, Bhimtal, Almora, or even for golfing at Nainatal and Ranikhet.
'It is better to be in love with the changing seasons than to be hopelessly in love with spring' they say. And perhaps The Ramgarh Bungalows are the perfect place to experience the variety of seasons. Here, the sky mirrors the changes as the clouds rise and unveil the snow peaks. Sunshine and rain wash the wooded hills. The Bungalows have been retired and refurnished in the old world charm of rural England. Home made biscuits and tea by the fireplaces make for memorable 19th century moments which will be missed by the times to come.
