The White Peaks
This cosy, two-bedroom cottage is located amid a shimmering silver oak forest in the rustic hamlet of Gagar in Uttarakhand. Nature lovers can spend the day hiking and bird watching in the surrounding woods. You can also bring your pets along and let them explore the great outdoors. Even Rabindranath Tagore, the great Indian writer, who had a summer home close by in Ramgarh, is said to have been inspired by the natural beauty of the place. Away from the chaos and clammer of city life, this is the idyllic home in the hills you can escape to every time you need to be one with nature.
