The SpaceGet away from traffic jams, shopping malls, deadlines, and the rat race come to The Back of Beyond and let us help you unwind and get back to nature. There are no ambient sounds except for birds chirping, forest sounds and the occasional hair raising alarm calls at night from the numerous deer telling us tales of the predators prowling the vicinity.
If you’re looking for an offbeat homestay in Uttrakhand which is within 300 kilometres from Delhi, then The Back of Beyond is your ideal weekend getaway destination. Six hours is what it takes to discover or rather rediscover yourselves and your loved ones.
Unlike conventional homestays, we offer you individual cottages providing privacy and no intrusions Guest AccessThe mantra at BoB translates to basic luxury eco living. There are 2 quaint cottages made of natural materials from the land. Each cottage is furnished with comfortable beds and attached bathrooms with running hot water.
There is also a central kitchen, bar and dining area where you can enjoy your morning cuppa and scrumptious meals made from produce harvested from the land. The dining extends into a deck under a luscious green Tun tree, where you can hang-out and relax. Interaction with GuestsNo obligation to socialise is our mantra, however if you would like to spend time with us, we would be delighted to.
We, Joydeep Sarkar, (avid cook, biker & gardener) and Rashi Agrawal, (orchid grower & avid bird watcher), have owned and lived in this wildlife haven for many years and would love to share it with you. The NeighborhoodSeamless jungle on all sides, wild life is abundant. The current record is close to 200 species of birds across seasons within the property.
BoB resides along the boundaries of Corbett Tiger Reserve. Wildlife sightings are frequent.
With no ambient light in the vicinity, the night skies put on a spectacular display of stars. Getting AroundThe closest train station is Ramnagar, there are daily trains from Delhi. From Ramnagar, we are an hour away, accessible by hired transport or local bus/ taxi services. Other Things to Note1). As we are located on the fringes of a forest reserve, cell phone connectivity is limited. We currently get Airtel signal in certain areas of the property, but it can be sketchy on certain days.
2). Walking around outside the property after dark is not recommended as there is an abundance of wildlife in the forests around.
3). Please note that there will be no internet available anywhere in the vicinity.
4). The nearest town is 40kms away, please carry any specific medication you may need.
5). Torches, sensible shoes are a definite necessity.
6). Charging stations for phones and other basic electronics are available in the dining area. There is no electricity in the rooms.
7). If you have any food allergies, please let us know.
8). All cottages are equipped with plenty of candles for you to be able to enjoy the ambience of the jungle.
9). Avoid high decibel noises such as loud music, boisterous revelry, and parties either in the day or night. While they disturb other guests greatly, they practically scare the life out of most birds and animals around forcing them to abandon their homes – the Forest.
10). When hiking, avoid leaving behind trash such as plastic bottles, biscuit wrappers, and disposable plates. All you have to do is avoid littering or throwing cigarette butts on the ground. Always use the garbage cans and ash trays provided in your room, and in all common areas in the property. Bag all your trash whether in a vehicle or on a trek. Be kind to the Forest. Help us keep it pristine and clean.
