Haven in the hills: Two sisters set up an organic resort to help the local community

Kanika and Kushika Sharma set up Dyo – the Organic Village Resort in Mukteshwar, Uttarakhand, in 2015, and are bringing luxury and nature on to the same table by encouraging locals to adopt organic farming methods

The temperatures rising across India, and were closing in on the season when families want to retreat to the hills to beat the heat. Be it Mussoorie or Srinagar, hill stations are perennially crowded.

Time perhaps to make your way to Mukteshwar, in the serene Kumaon hills and just 51 km away from Nainital. Here, sisters Kanika Sharma, 31, and Kushika Sharma, 29, have set up the perfect getaway that combines a luxurious lifestyle with organic food and promises to recharge you completely.
