Hidden away amongst the mountains in India's border district of Pithoragarh at a height of 7000 feet Munsiyari is probably the closest you can get to experiencing the Greater Himalayas from hand shaking distance. At Munsiyari you have the majestic Panch Chulli peak towering all of 22600 feet right in front of you. The Wayfarer Resort Munsiyari offers a mix of five kumaoni log huts and five Swiss cottage type tents.

Each unit of Wayfarer Resort Munsiyari has a 12'x10' living area equipped with a double bed, coffee table, chairs, clothes rack, jute flooring and lantern for emergencies. Every hut and tent is attached to an outhouse equipped with a western style toilet, sink and shower.

Thereafter they may proceed to Munsyari through Kausani, Baijnath, Bageshwar and Vijaypur.

Around Resort
Right now Munsyari is treaded upon by few. Roseat dawns and crimson dusks can leave you simply staring at the snow laden summits for hours. There are several options for those wishing to experiment with soft adventure. A day's trek to the nearby villages like Darkot (4 Kms) and Daranti (7 Kms) can be quite an eye opener. Similarly a 2 kms trek through the forest leads to Maheshwari Kund, a picturesque nature lake. Legends abound about the lovers who shunned the world and were united in this place. There are other interesting day treks to Balati Farm at a height of 9000 feet, which offers breath taking panoramic views of the snow peaks, or to Thamri Kund, another lake hidden amongst rhododendron forests. A Jeep Safari through Madkot, Chori Bagar, Bangapani to Jouljibi and back entails a day's travel through absolutely picturesque locations along the banks of the Gori Ganga and you may end up exhausting your entire camera roll. Likewise a visit to the waterfalls at Jimi Ghat could prove to be another eye opener.
