Activities around Junoon

“Whenever the sun is shining, I feel obligated to play outside!”
― Charles M. Schulz


When visiting for a long weekend, most visitors prefer to just stay at home, relaxing and catching up with each other, getting pampered, playing pool, staying fit in the (small but adequate) gym, or catching some TV. Long walks along the country road are enjoyable, with some beautiful valley and snow-capped Himalayan views in the winter - you can spend hours just soaking these in...

For the more adventurous, there are mountain trails winding through small villages all the way down to the stream at Garampani. Our staff can help you decide what you'd like to do, and arrange for local guides if needed.

If staying longer, Darmani is well situated for trips to local destinations. Nainital is due south, a little over an hour away. Similarly, Ranikhet and Almora are about 40km away, further north. Various other local sites - such as Bhimtal, Naukuchiyatal, Mukteshwar, Sitla, and other Kumaon destinations - are all within easy motoring reach, allowing for comfortable day trips.

Our staff can arrange for local taxis to travel in the hills, at very reasonable rates - just ask!
