AyurVAID: Kalmatia
The estate was developed into a resort by the Commissioner’s granddaughter GeetaReeb and her German husband, with cottages built in British colonial style with Kumaoni influences. This area is believed to have a ‘mystical’ quality akin to the Inca Mountains of Machu Picchu in Peru owing to similar composition in the atmosphere of the two regions.
