"Magic is essentially a 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.
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 the 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.
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.

At HushNest, we have created a different world for the free-spirits, the crazy ones, the explorers, for those of us who believe in magic and for those who like to experience and not just see.
We have partnered with locals who have unused private land at magical locations and set up enchanting nests with all the comforts of a room.
The sole mission is to bring balance back into modern life. We want to help you unplug from the daily hustle and focus on yourself, your relationships and the wonders of nature.

Slow and soft music is okay, but please do not play loud music. You are in the middle of nature.
Services of the staff are available until 10:00 PM
There is severe water shortage in the hills . There will be enough for you all. But, we will appreciate if you ensure there is no wastage.
We are pet-friendly. If you are coming with your pet, make sure they are well-mannered and that nothing is damaged.
Bonfire is available at the site on a chargeable basis. Please inform the caretaker well in advance as the wood has to be sourced accordingly.
The nests are stable in all weather conditions, however in case of heavy rainfall, we request you to keep the window zippers closed. Some water might still trickle in from the window zippers but the caretaker will come and dry it up for you as soon as the weather is better.
We have 02 tents (nests) and they are offered on a double occupancy basis. There is space for one more extra bed in each nest. If you want to book both nests, you will have to select and book both nests separately.
Even though we have tried to offer all basic amenities, HushNest is meant to be 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 02 nests are located at an exclusive space dedicated to hushnest but within the premises of a homestay. The family that lives at the homestay are also your hosts. The host will visit the nests several times during the day to ask if you need anything at hushnest. There is no bell/room service since we are trying to offer a private experience.
Depending on the weather, it gets a little hot inside the tents during the day. We recommend you open the windows for cross ventilation or you may spend the day walking around the village. If you’d like you may request your hosts to take you around; nothing better than being guided by the locals.
Wifi and Connectivity:
