"Quiet, Scenic, cool place just 25 km from Nainital."

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted Mar 25, 2017
Ramgarh is a quite scenic place in the Himalayas, just 25 km from Nainital and almost the same altitude ie 6000 ft from sea level. The nearest railway station is Kathgodam [ 45km nearest airport is Pant Nagar [ 70 km ]. You take a cab and travel by road, via Bhimtal and Then Bhowali. There is road connecting Bhowali and Nainital.
There are plenty of places to stay at this not so crowded place in summer. There are Hotels like Cedar Lodge, and independent Cottages like Artist Cottage. V resorts, Neemrana are other places. The place is surrounded by pine trees.
Making base at Ramgarh, you can visit Mukteshawar, Nathua Khan, Bhowali, Nainital and many other spots. Mukteshwar has many activities like hiking etc. Plenty of walks and bird watching. Chirping birds will replace the sounds of hooting horns of cars. Relax and enjoy. When I stayed at the beautiful Self catering two bedroom Artist cottage, no fans were needed in March 2017.

"Budget Holiday and Cool Peaceful Retreat"

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted Jun 28, 2016
Why should one Visit Ramgarh
You should visit Ramgarh if you want a cool retreat as I mentioned in the title. (We stayed in Kumau Mandala Resort so it was stardard and affordable) Ramgarh is small place, really quiet and peaceful, gives you view of Himalayan Range and keeps you pleasant in off season.
If you are a writer and nature lover you will love it here.
Alternatively if you want to relax with your life partner, and you are just seeking a quiet peaceful change in a resort and a lot of walking opportunity then Ramgarh is the place for you.
I honestly enjoyed the peace the place offered. Just sitting together and eating is so much joy here ...
Which are the must visit places?
Well we stayed here for one day and one night. And then in the morning went off driving to Nainital. I guess a one or two hour beautiful drive.
What kind of activities kept us busy?
Well ... Watching the himalayan range from our hotel room.
Spending time in the resort garden ..

"An endearing village midst the mountains"

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted Mar 27, 2016
Nathuakhan is a village in the Ramgarh block of the Nainital district in the state of Uttarakhand. Close proximity to more famed Mukteshwar and Nainital, this village is surrounded by Kumaon mountain range. On the way, few kilometers before, comes Bhimtal. Though the lake is huge & picturesque, the drive is beautiful along but the waters of the lake aren't too inviting for boating. On accommodation - being a village no hotel can be found. Too many homestays have sprung up, worthy mentions are Keana home stay and Bob's place. One can expect healthy organic diet, exotic fresh fruit platter & bonfires luxury of sipping hot chocolate while taking in the morning breeze. Mukteshwar offers few activities- temple visit, trekking upto Nanda Range viewpoint, rappelling, archery etc. Please use a guide - it is the locals way to earn and they do tell interesting stuff which you won't ever find out on your own. Also worth mentioning is the short trek down to river and India's largest vet research facility in the area. Back at the village, have your dose of gazing into mountains & green fields and relaxing in the lap of nature.

"Amazing place to visit"

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted Jan 28, 2016
Quiet and serene place to visit. If you want to travel to place away from the hustle and bustle of crowded nainital, ramgarh is your destination. The environment is so quiet and fantastic. The rainy season is the best suited time for visiting. Keep warm clothes with you.

"Must visit this isolated place"

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted Sep 28, 2015
We actually went to Bhowali in Ramgarh. Ramgarh is an isolated place, very peaceful, dense green, excellent roads. A typical peace seekers place. 22 kms away from Nainital and 27 kms from Mukteshwar.

Activities: You can go to Mukteshwar, excellent location, extreme peace. Visiting the local villages and talking to villagers is an awesome experience. Nainital is another place to visit since it is at a reasonable distance. With Ramgarh so close, you are not required to stay in busy and crowded Nainital.

For local shopping, travellers can seek the local fruits production (Ramphal) and walnuts and chestnuts. We did not expect the weather to be this cold. The weather was as high as 16 degrees even during afternoons.

"Blissful place to visit during rains"

  • 5.0/7
  • Posted Jul 21, 2015
Looking for sometime away from the city rush? This is quite an amazing getaway destination. Just a ride of about an hour or two from Nanital. High on the mountains. It also has quite many accommodations and also standard resorts. Population is very less. Best time to visit in the rains. Truly a blissful place to be in at that time. Specially the couples seeking a pocket friendly getaway. Best option.

"Calm & Serene Location!"

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted Jul 21, 2015
Just came back from a short two day trip to Ramgarh. Its a beautiful, calm, serene place which one would like to go for relaxation. The place has a beautiful view of the valley and while walking down the road you will see so many plum, apple and pear trees!

The only challenge is you don't have many shops and it is better to carry raw material to cook or even chips and coke from Bhowali which is 4-5 km from Ramgarh. If you are looking for a place to relax. This should be your next destination!
