Sargakhet, Mukteshwar


5 private bedrooms | upto 12 guests

Welcome to Sargakhet, a Kumaoni hamlet situated in the loving & generous lap of the Panchachuli peaks. Close enough for easy access to the effervescence of Mukteshwar, yet tucked away in sweet tranquility, this blessed little spot is now home to Ayesha & Rahool.

Having grown up at Sherwood College, Nainital, Rahool had carried an undying love for the Himalayas all through his fast-paced adult life in the city. Back in 2017 Rahool & Ayesha set out to identify the perfect spot to come back home to the mountains. The search, conceptualization and manifestation of their collective dream project was a six-year long journey studded with countless twists & turns. A story they now love to recount with their guests over drinks & dinner.

Now open to guests and peace-seekers, their home (and personal attention) is a true reflection of the joys of living a slower life. The rooms, balconies and shared spaces are as large, homey & cheerful as their love for meeting + hosting people.


Guests can choose from five uniquely and thoughtfully designed private rooms spread over 3 levels. The layout of this homestay is conducive to all settings- solo travelers, couples or groups. Each room measures a generous 385 sqft including a balcony/sit-out with uninterrupted views of the verdant valleys and snow-capped peaks.

Guests are given the option to book out all 5-bedrooms together or any of the rooms individually, without compromising on privacy.

Amenities: All rooms come with large king-sized beds, a mini-fridge and tea-coffee station, attached bathrooms in each room with running hot water (no bathtub), space heaters and fresh towels. Roll away cots and extra mattresses available on request, at an additional cost.

Given his life-long association with the region, Rahool is super familiar with every nook and brook that exists in and around Sargakhet. When he’s not busy keeping the place and team up & running, Rahool spends his days photographing birds and walking the trails that surround the property.
