Wherever You Go, Don't Plug In Your Headphones. Instead Listen To The Sounds Of Nature

None of us can live without music. That’s a given. Next time, listen to the music of nature sounds where chirping birds and ripples of flowing river make you move to a captivating groove.

HolidayIQ Traveller Vinod Koshi shares about living in Kanatal, "Songs of nature, sound of silence is in abundance here... the rooms are spacious and are well designed to give you comfort and pleasure. Food is simple and hence great. The staff is young, educated, energetic and friendly - we never felt we are away from home. The view from the rooms are excellent. The place is advisable for those who want to get away from the noise of the city, to relax with the family, do some little trekking. It takes you away from your world to a new experience which can only be internalised - it offers you so many things that capturing it with lens is just not possible. I would definitely go again."

An awesome off beat destination

Off beat destination. Less crowded and less commercialised, about 300 kms from Delhi. Delhi, Rishikesh, Chamba(uttarakhand), Kanatal. Roads almost all good throughout the journey. Stayed at Kanatal Resort during the diwali holidays in 2015 Family vacation. Excursions like Kodia jungle and Surkanda devi temple and Dhanaulti nature park. Dhanaulti nature park is worth visiting. Nominal entry charges. Good place to take photographs. The snacks available in a roadside food joint in front of the nature parka gate, in form of pakodas, omlette, Maggie along with tea coffee or cold drinks is a must have. You will love it. Surkanda devi temple is a climb of about 1:5 to 2 hours but people make sure that you start your climb from the front gate otherwise there is another point of entry a little away but that's pretty hard trek and would take too much of a time to travel. Kanatal is worth visiting if you love to take the road less travelled.

Emerging hill station!

You wont find a tourist crowed here. Just have pure air, green trails, peaceful nature and nutritious food. Avoid to visit in rainy season, roads get slippery. Do hangouts, bonfire and recharge your self. As this is a offbeat destination, you will find only few resorts or camp who offer staying or lodging. Neither a rest house or hotel, yeah its good will let you breathe if you want to keep yourself away to the crowed and noise.
