Driving into Jageshwar is in itself an experience. Driving from Kathgodam or Almora, the entire Kumaoni hillside is spotted with houses. As you drive along, at the turn off at Artola, the road is slowly engulfed by the Deodar trees and before you know it, the mist combined with the thick forest give the feeling of entering a whole new world.
Just at the entrance of the sleepy town of Jageshwar, jutting out inconspicuously from a hilltop is the enchanting lodge of Van Serai. While close enough to be able to easily walk to the temple cluster of Jageshwar, Van Serai is far enough to be able to enjoy the tranquility of Jageshwar. Adding to the charm of the pristine setting, is the rivulet Surabhi, winding its way towards the temples to pay homage to the Great Lord Shiva.
Labour of Love – Van Serai
A grueling two years in the making, Van Serai has truly been a labour of love. Attention to every detail has resulted in a unique stay option that has ensured the lodge fits into the local surroundings seamlessly.
The architectural inspiration of Van Serai comes from the traditional Kumaoni style of construction. All the rooms and common areas have been designed keeping in tune with the local architectural feel. Big verandas in the front and back have been specially created to let the guests enjoy the greenery and make the most of the warm sunshine bathing the lodge.
Van Serai is an eco friendly lodge
where we try to reuse, reduce and recycle thus giving back what we can to this natural paradise. The Lodge comprises of 6 rooms
