Adventurous Kufri

Apple garden.... Telescopic view... EtcPlace to visit once at least in life..... ... If time and budget allows, go and experience in each season. ... Joy and fun....

It was a pleasant visit... Horses were trained.. To carrying travellers... Adventure sports were very reasonable and we really enjoyed a lot.. As it was no season for Apple farming we couldn't find them... There is shiv temple... And an amusement park for kids.. Perfect place for family.. Please avoid small kids as travelling is on horses it might get risky.

Gorgeous and stunning peak clad in white snow

The best place to be in Kufri. Enjoy skating and sliding at the plain snow clad ground. Took the skating kits for rent and also services of the professional photographers there. They surely captured memories of a lifetime for us. Kits cost you anywhere between 5000-7500 for a group of 4 people, bargained to get 4 kits for 5k as we reached there by 10:45 AM to avoid rush. Best time to reach is around 10 AM as later the traffic/ rush on the route increases and also possibilities of a heavy snow.We decided to reach higher points at the Fagu. Locals provide ponies to reach there. The route to reach there is quite swampy and full of rocky obstacles big and small. Please don't allow the guide to tie the ponies tightly with rope which they normally do to pull all of them together to the destination. The reason being, a sudden jerk due to a strong pull may imbalance the riders which may cause fatal injuries. Also there is no nearby medical facility to rush for. Also the crowded route makes it very difficult to re-balance.We got scared as we experienced it, got down and had to walk through that swampy route. After reaching the top/peak, there are many options to re-create, eat the local kulchas there if hungry, many shop available for some excellent quality winter caps and mufflers for wearing or even as take-aways. There are some recreational parks at the top, which can be enjoyed and also some temples for the devotees. Let euphoria captivate you when you marvel the truly beautiful Himalayas from the Fagu Top!!

Not recommended

Nothing much to do, no tourist attraction. The only thing to do is see the view, you got to see the same view from Kufri. Wastage of time and money. Its better to explore Kufri rather than going to Fagu, roads also not good to go Fagu.
