No doc, that's not all. More, much more can be suggested.
You haven't really indicated what exactly you are looking for. That ALWAYS is a must before sensible/relevant recommendations can be made.
Who knows, you might just love to park yourselves at Harsil for a few days!

Harsil is a heavenly place :-) Icing on cake is if you get booking at GMVN Tourist bungalow/hotel there.

In Kumaon you can try Kausani or Mukteshwar. Ranikhet is also good but is much more touristy now than it used to be.

Mukteshwar seems to be the best bet. I presume its near Nepal border, and pretty scenic too

Just 52 kms from Nainital!

Shilon Resort, near Shimla is also an excellently located place, sitting right on a spur of jutting land!

Tanveer, have you done Munsiyari? Would love to see the pics, on some other thread!
Last century, I had been to Pithoragarh in my all-Kumaon darshan and had not even heard of Munsiyari, so did not go! Those were the days before we had God Google to guide us in our endeavours!

At 8500 ft above MSL, in a valley which is essentially leeward I think, the temps will be quite different in Aug and in Sept. That is almost change-of-season time.
You could expect it to be cold evenings and nights in Sept - one good sweater type cold.
In August, expect 25 to 28 celsius in sunshine and 16 to 20 after sundown.
Wouldn't it be best to ask the resort chaps these details? They should know!
Is this what you've got in mind?: Seema 9891458220/ Anand 9811193634
Kanatal,off beat hill station around Mussoorie,Terraces resorts and Cottages
