Set in 4 acres of forest and nestled in the Shivalik Range of The Himalayas, the two stone cottages of The Back Of Beyond offer spectacular views of the Corbett Tiger Reserve, The Kosi River Valley and the surrounding mountains. As the name suggests, this property takes you far away from the sights and sounds of city life and places your right in the lap of mother nature. The noise of traffic jams and honking are replaced by melodic tunes of birds chirping; the views of tall buildings in a concrete jungle are replaced by towering trees in the dense forest. The Back Of Beyond is an ideal destination to experience the stunning beauty of The Himalayas and Corbett.
