Compared to other small hill stations,this place also offers accommodation to tourists coming from different corners who wish to stay a day or two to acclimatize with the environment and observe the offerings of Mother nature.There are some pristine snow clad peaks visible from the sphere and wildlife adventure thriving in the deodar forests.Sunrise point,rock climbing, and orchard visits are some of the promising tourists attractions in the region that urges real time travelers to convoy the sphere along with the grandiosity and the majesty of the Mighty Himalayas.We brought some woolen clothes which are quite popular in the region and we camped in a place close to the forest area to feel the essence and the grandeur of the place to its fullest.

On the way to Mukteshwar

Temperature of the region remains mostly subtropical and I chose December month to visit the circuit along with one of my friend to witness the chillness and the eminence of the unblemished peaks of the Kumaon ranges with Nanda Devi amongst the prominent ones.The winter months of December and January are the best time as there are no climatic huddles that can play spoilsport to one’s plans of convoying the entire proximity under consideration.It was an enthralling and spellbinding experience for me and my companion to contrive unforgettable reflection and recognition of this divine place which is a must visit destination for all mountain lovers and pilgrims across the terrene.
