Enjoy a luxurious and peaceful stay

pet friendly resort Emerald Trail

In 2005, a chance stay at Jungaliyagaon, Bhimtal changed Sumith Dutta’s life path. This corporate executive was leading a busy, stressful life and the warmth of the villagers made him realise what home means. Giving up the only life he knew in the city, he moved to his home in quaint Jangliyagaon ; away from the bustle of main Bhimtal & Naukuchaiyatal lake, 7000 feet above sea level.

He saw an opportunity to put his years of MNC experience to create a property that would be an “experience in sustainable and eco-friendly habitat” for travellers and guests. He wanted the quaint village to retain its natural beauty while letting weary city-dwellers experience the charm of village life in luxury.


Without endangering the environment, to generate livelihood for locals, EMERALD TRAIL was conceived as a for-profit social enterprise. In an extremely short span after inception, Emerald Trail still ranks as the number 1 Homestay in Bhimtal.

Emerald Trail is not only known for its warmth and affection, but also for being a homestay that loves and welcomes pets, utilizes the green habitat for a self-sustainable life and is now truly regarded as an eco-lodge and one of the best eco-friendly resorts in Nainital, Uttarakhand, India.
