Known for its beauty, hilly terrain and majestic views of the snow clad mountains it is a place worth visiting, and visiting many times over.

follow The beautiful view of the Trishul peaks from the cottages is breathtaking and mesmerizing. It gets quite chilly in November, but there is abundant sunshine during the day. At the night time mostly clear skies open up almost the magical roof of the world to a vast array of stars. You can see the milky way river if you can bear the chill and stay a little longer in the night.

rencontres franco allemandes evian 2013 There are quite a few places to see around Ranikhet.

  • Its a cantonement area and houses the Kumaon Regiment. The area is pretty clean because of army discipline and it is quite heartening to see it all green and clean.
  • There is a big 18-hole golf course that one can visit and a little further towards Ranikhet (from Majhkali) is the Kali temple. Its a small place but has its own charm, and meaning to the religious folks.
  • Haidakhan temple is another sacred place which is often visited by tourists and is quite a relaxing place.
  • There is not a whole of industry but there is a weavers place where some of the underpriveleged folks of the place find employment and do a great job and producing beautiful hand woven shawls and other such articles.

recherche a femme We bumped into this cafe on the way to our cottage and was mesmerized by it’s beauty that we again visited the next day for a quick coffee and their special banana cake before leaving for Delhi. Rooster design was predominant in their interiors and table napkins and other stuffs which we found very interesting. They also had home-stay arrangements.
