About Us

Vijaypur, a tiny Himalayan village, located between Bageshwar and Chaukori is known to only a few travellers. Situated at an altitude of 6750 feet, this sleepy hamlet rests on a ridge overlooking the magnificent Himalayan range. On a clear day the place offers one of the most breathtaking views of the entire range from Trishul, Nanda Devi, Nanda Kot to Panchachuli.

Chestnut Grove Himalayan Lodge is located in the small hamlet of Vijaypur near Chaukori Uttarakhand. The lodge had a cluster of 6 aesthetically made huts/cottages made of bamboo wood and stone. The place overlooks the Reema valley and gives panoramic view of the Himalayan Peaks – Mt. Trishul, Nandadevi peaks, Nandakulichot, Panchuchulli.

Things That Differentiate CGHL From Others


At Chestnut Grove we do not boast of Luxury but the place has all the basic amenities in place. The accommodation is subtle yet impressive to make your stay comfortable and memorable.

Wellness By Nature

Experience nature closely as Chestnut Grove gives you the opportunity to live in harmony with nature.

Organic Food

The food served at Chestnut Grove is healthy, homely and  mostly organic with the ingredients freshly selected from the local market. It is cooked to your taste.


Vijaypur stays cool in summers. The monsoon months turn the entire landscape into green. Autumn brings settled weather and clear skies offering excellent sighting of the Himalayas. In winters its chilly, and the surrounding ranges are covered in a blanket of snow. The temperature ranges from 0 to 10 degrees.


Cozy huts and great food in the middle of the forest! Rajendra, the supervisor, is providing an amazing service and even took us to the close by Hindu temple and tea garden. Very much recommended!

We took our stop at this beautiful place while traveling from Munsiyari to Kausani. Nestled amidst a pine forest this place is perfect for detoxification. The best part is that it offers all kinds of modern facilities. Would love to go back again.



The lodge itself is a place to be experienced. Situated amidst the lush green pine trees it gives your soul inner peace. Secluded from the hustle bustle of the crowd, equipped with bare minimum facilities, this lodge gives the feeling of being close to nature. mobile phone signals are hardly available, the only sound that you hear is the chirping of birds everywhere.
