"Magic is essentially the higher understanding of nature."
Experience the magic in the air and the power in the cool mountain breeze as it brushes your skin. Feel the energy of the plants, bushes and trees. Pluck your own fruits as you walk through acres of peach and apple orchards that envelope your private nest or meditate to the sight of majestic snow-covered Himalayan peaks.
At Hushnest x Sunkiya (Enchanted hills), tucked away in a small village called Sunkiya near Mukteshwar, you can disconnect and let yourself be surrounded by nature at its best. Calm yourself, focus and let magic do the rest.
At Hushnest x Sunkiya, we have created a small world for those of us who believe in magic which is why the names of the 02 nests have been derived from a very powerful magical word. Our nests Abra and Cadabra have been set up in a peach orchard, on private farmland at a height of 6,500 ft.
Abra and Cadabra, both, overlook the valley and snow covered peaks in the distance. There is a lot of open space around the nests and an outdoor seating area with a hammock and some dream catchers for those lazy afternoons.
Each of the 02 nests is equipped with creative boho-decor ( such as dream catchers, fairy lights, macrame etc), dim lights, plug-sockets, board games, some books, a “lock your phone” box, a solar torch, laminated floors, queen-sized beds with top quality beddings and private toilets with hot and cold shower. We also have a bean bag and some comfortable seating inside each nest if you feel like lazing around. The nests have a diameter of 15 ft and have been designed to be spacious and uncluttered.
Let the magic of Abra-Cadabra take you over.
ABOUT THE SITE
Hushnest x Sunkiya is your own private hideout. The site is tucked away at a secret spot in a lesser explored little hamlet called Sunkiya.
At just 20 minutes from the Mukteshwar town, Sunkiya (6500 ft) is probably what Mukteshwar used to be before it became touristy: Less crowded, more peaceful, much quieter, lush green with terraced farmlands coupled with an awe-inspiring view of snow-covered peaks and amazing weather throughout the year.
The Sunkiya and Bhatelia belt is known for its fruit and vegetable plantations and so Hushnest x Sunkiya at Enchanted hills has been set up amidst acres of private fruit orchards. The owner of these orchards stays at a cottage very close to your nest and will also be your local host throughout your Hushnest experience. The host and his staff leave no stone unturned when it comes to quality of food and services. Expect mouth-watering farm-to-table meals made of freshly plucked vegetables and organically sourced ingredients. And hey, you can even pluck your own fruits and vegetables while you are there.

Things to Note:
The place is located at a secret location near Mukteshwar in a small village called Sunkiya near Bhatelia. We will share the exact directions upon confirmation. The last 1 km is a dirt road and getting to the nests requires a short walk of about 5 mins from where you park your car.
Even though we have tried to offer all basic amenities, HushNest is meant to be a close to nature experience. It’s not luxury camping and we do not expect our guests to treat the place that way. While you are here, be nice to the locals, do not litter, do not play loud music and be one with nature.
The network is weak in this area, however, you still get good 3G / 4G connection at certain points.
The food is prepared by an in-house chef, please share your food preferences well in advance. The host offers Local / Indian cuisine made from raw materials grown in the nearby farms. For the meals, we request you to kindly head to the designated dining area so that food can be served hot.
Take care of the place just like it is your own.
Slow and soft music is okay, but please do not play loud music. You are in the middle of nature.
Be nice to the locals
