Who we Are
For each of us our journey begins with our love for the Himalayas and nature. In 2018 Mriganka left his job with IIM Lucknow to search for a place he could call home in the Himalayas. Extensive travels across Himalayas led him to Merdhura, a picturesque village in rural Almora. Friends pitched in, in terms of know-how, encouragement, funds. This collaboration has taken the shape of Kumaon Elements.
Creating ‘Experiential homestays’ connecting travelers with nature and social and cultural elements of Kumaon.
