Chaukori Homestay


Chaukori – the land of galaxies

Chaukori is a dream destination in Kumaon hills of Uttarakhand. As the name suggests, its a bowl shaped tiny hamlet enveloped in the heart of Himalayas. Known for its beautiful dawn and dusk, Chaukori is bestowed with natural grandeur. Its crystal clear sky offers miraculous galaxies opening its heart to us at night. Chaukori provides awe-inspiring view of  Nanda Devi, Panchchuli, Nanda Kot, Trishul, Chaukhamba to landscape photographers. It also is among very few places of Kumaon to have lush green tea gardens that keep its air fresh and fragrant. The Mahakali River runs along its eastern boundary. It is conveniently connected to the nearest railway station Kathgodam by bus or taxi.

Review

Chaukori

Extremely happy with my stay at Mr. Tarun Mehra's homestay in Chaukori, booked through your website. The homestay is located at a beautiful spot in the village- spend the day looking at the snow-clad Himalayan ranges from their premises, and gaze at the multitude of stars in the night. The homestay had comfortable beds, clean rooms, and hot water available in the bathroom. Enjoyed traditional home cooked meals cooked by Tarun ji's Mom. For those interested in adventure, there are MTB trails, rope climbing, ladder climbing, etc activities that can be enjoyed in and around the premises. Would like to visit them again and stay for a much longer time. Three cheers to Tarun Ji for developing this gem of a homestay!

We reached Chaukori in the evening tired and hungry. The warm welcome with the local snacks, that we didn't even ask for, made us forget all the journey woes and we were excited for rest of our trip.
