Welcome to Kuflon Basics - a Hideaway

  • Manish

Location: Garhwal Himalaya
Duration: 4 Days
Ideal Season: Mid-September to early July

Coast into a getaway you will never want to get away from. People of all ages, from all walks of life are welcome. The philosophy of Kuflon Basics is simple: When you take a break from life, you discover life itself. Its all back to basics in this eco-friendly paradise! This experience with nature does not have to be about hard beds or unhygienic food. Every need and comfort is well planned and taken care of, a perfect balance.

At Kuflon experience a world that is untouched, serene, almost timeless.Start the day with yoga, imbibe the energy, the natural vibe, the call of the Barbet or the cry of the Hill Pheasant being the only distraction. Spend the morning following the winding channel that makes its way through a silent forest to an even more silent, and magnificent, water pool. For those blessed with a patient disposition, fly-fishing presents a great opportunity to test their skills. The local stream, the Assi Ganga, abounds in Brown trout. Gentle rolling hills provide the perfect setting for the lazy walker as well as the eager jogger.

Of course, one is always welcome to do nothing at all: take a stroll around our vegetable farm, recuperate around the evening bonfire; gaze at the night sky like the first Greek philosophers did; lie down with a beer on a weather-beaten rock and catch a shooting star in your palm.
