Could i have some help, please?

Uttrakhand has mesmerised me. Having spent an idyllic 11 days in Ranikhet, the beautiful and pristine surroundings, coupled with the invigorating environment has got to me. I am hooked. Reading a TR of a fellow BCMer further intensified the craving of jumping in the car and heating North again.
The plan brewing is to drive through Uttrakhand during March/ April. The factors which would influence the place and stay are as under:
  1. Would not be keen to visit crowded or over commercialised places, except for places having religious significance. ( The Missus would like to visit, having gone all the way)
  2. Time is not a constraint.
  3. Would prefer clean, small, exclusive places to stay. While can afford to spend a bit, would also prefer home stays, subject to clean surroundings and great people/ hosts to interact with.
  4. Would also like to spend some time in places off the beaten track.
  5. Wild life is an obsession, and hence some time here would definitely perk things up. ( as if they need perking!)

So, guys which are places you would see, if you were to make such a trip and where would you stay? What are the issues to be kept in mind?

Would be grateful if you guys could share your experiences and views.
Thank you

To cut a long story short I am just throwing a few names ; I am confining myself to the places that I have been , more than once : Munsiyari , Binsar , Mukteswar , Sitlakhet , Chaukori . All or any of them would mesmerise you .
Thank you, Somnath for the prompt response. Any recommendations on stay places?
All fixed up for Gujarat?

I have always stayed at KMVN properties. Quite adequate for my needs, value for money, best of the locations etc etc. I strongly recommend Munsiyari for you, get a local guide and you can hope to get monals and all kinds of pheasants.
Gujarat is all set , except Velavader, as you know, I will have to call them a month ahead as told.

The whole of Kumaon is beautiful and worth exploring. There are KMVN properties everywhere, and while they are sort of expensive (ranging from Rs. 800 to 2,000 a night), their location usually is superb. Would you be driving or utilizing public transport?

Only place I've been to in UK is Chamba so cant really comment. But will be watching this thread as I have similar requirements as OP.
