If you are looking for some time away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life, Chanfi is the place to go to. It’s a short drive from the Kathgodam station and about a 15-30 minute trek from the road, depending on your state of fitness. Fortunately the property has staff who transport your baggage.

You walk through a valley as you get off the road and suddenly you find you have arrived at Soulitude. The accommodations are cottage style, with typically two rooms in each cottage – upstairs and downstairs. I was pleased to find myself in a downstairs suite as it had an outdoor open-to-sky bathing area as well as being a little cooler than the upstairs room.

The staff are amazing and really looked after us. The meals were excellent as were the chai and the chaas. this is a place where you forget your phone (signals are very weak) and focus on being surrounded by nature. We found ourselves exploring the surrounding area and discovering several great spots to sit down and read a good book or sit and chat.

An amazing bonus is the river which runs alongside the property. Apart from the welcome sound of running water, a major bonus was the opportunity to go and sit on the huge rocks next to the water and soak your feet in the river. Before you knew it, there were a number of small fish providing a complimentary pedicure!

A great experience – felt like being in a very comfortable jungle retreat.
