Joys at Tree of Life


Just Unwind!

When visiting for a long weekend, most visitors prefer to just stay at home, relaxing and catching up with each other, getting pampered, playing pool, staying fit in the (small but adequate) gym, or catching some TV.


Take a stroll

Long walks along the country road are enjoyable, with some beautiful valley and snow-capped Himalayan views in the winter – you can spend hours just soaking the glorious views of the countryside!


An Adventure!

For the more adventurous, there are mountain trails winding through small villages all the way down to the stream at Garampani. Our staff can help you decide what you’d like to do, and arrange for local guides if needed.



If staying longer, Darmani is well situated for trips to local destinations. Nainital is due south, a little over an hour away. Similarly, Ranikhet and Almora are about 40km away, further north.

how to get here?

A distance of about 280km to Kathgodam. The road is a 4-lane national highway most of the way to Moradabad, and a 2-lane state highway from there to Kathgodam. If driving up from Delhi , any kind of car can get to Darmani – there’s no need for a 4-wheel drive!

Kathgodam, the last railway station on the route, is well-connected to Delhi, with 3 trains at different times of the day. On average, this train journey takes 7 hours. From Kathgodam, the drive up into the hills takes you past Bhimtal up to Bhowali (about 5500 feet), before descending to Garampani. At Garampani, the old Khairna bridge leading left off the village centre takes you up again, towards Dhaniyakot (and then on, via Betaalghat, to Corbett National Park). About 10km from Garampani is the village, and Tree of Life Junoon in the Hills is visible a couple of kilometers across the valley as you approach the village…
