About Us

At The Oak Trails, Haryal we have three cottages with five tastefully appointed rooms with attached modern bathrooms.

We also have two tents set inside an apple orchard.

The cottages are painstakingly constructed in traditional Kumaoni style. The stone on the walls are joined together by using mud and then the plaster on the wall is done by using mud and husk which provides for excellent insulation.

The cottages have a slate roof. This local stone is put over split up logs and sealed with sticky mud in between.All the artisans and workers are from the near by villages only. We try to employ only local people from the village community.

The 18 Km drive to Haryal passes through the densly forested area of Cheena Peak range. It has the richest Oak, Rhododendron, Pine, Devdar forest which supports an enormous variety of Himalayan flaura and fauna. This area is an excellent birding spot.
