Chotti Haldwani has had the pleasure of hosting distinguished guests. It has hosted two Viceroys of India, Lord Linlithgow in 1936 and Lord Wavell in 1946 apart from governors of United Province, Sir Malcom Hailey and Lord Harry Haig. The tradition has been carried forward by the CGVSCome stay with us in our various homestays

Away from hustle and bustle of hectic daily lives of city dwellers, away form the polluted streets and crowded corners of plains, in the lap of foothills of Kumaon lies the serene beautiful village of Jim Corbett-Chhoti Haldwani.

Staying with a family in the village provides an authentic experience of rural lifestyle and an opportunity to interact with the villagers. While in the village don’t miss the chance to visit Jim Corbett Heritage Trail. This trail provides a unique experience of the works done by Jim Corbett to develop a model Kumaoni Village. Evening entertainments of the folk-songs of Kumaon, Cooking Workshops and Film Shows enrich the experience of staying in the village.

We have an array of homestays and cottages for various experiences. Be it for students wanting to do community based projects, large groups, writers looking for quiet solitude, thatched cottages for rural experience.
