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…

Guest Appreciation

A+++ for everything... Location 10/10 Food 10/10 Staff 10/10 I stay there for two days with my one year daughter and I must say that it was the best decision of my nainitaal trip... Thanks Tree of life
This beautiful property is situated at a higher elevated position than its nearby plains or valleys. Visiting Tree of Life Junoon was the best getaway from the scorching heat of the city. The pollution free place, pleasant weather and temperature are suitable for meditation and health restoration here. We were simply mesmerized to see the view. Rooms are of such good size and have a breath taking view. We could also see snow-capped peaks. We got to see very rare species of birds and the amazing colours of the birds along with their chirping sounds made the atmosphere very vibrant. The looming greens, the breezy climate, the sound, and the fragrance of the pines and the other trees are refreshing and mood lifters. The trip was a fantastic experience and we all felt revitalised and energised. Being so close to Mother Nature can make anyone joyful. The beauty of the place is breath-taking and unforgettable - multi-coloured flowers, the clouds soaring through the sky, and the snow-covered peaks of the high mountains in the distance. We would all love to come here again soon. The manager of the place Mr. Shailender is a humble, courteous and a wonderful human being. He made our stay so comfortable and memorable. We can’t thank him enough. The children were comfortable at the place and were interacting directly with Mr. Shailender and the staff. Can’t miss to mention about the tasty, wonderful food of this beautiful place. The good food made our stay more memorable. Mr. Raju and his team are very active and courteous and were always happy to serve us.
