HolidayIQ Traveller MD Faizi shares, “Kumaon is a good place for a holiday with friends. You can trek in the jungles, feel nature in the most pure form and spot various wildlife. We took an elephant ride. Because there were not many options with food, we cooked our own meals, which was fun.”

Kumaon is a region of Uttarakhand with various towns, including hill-stations and religious spots. While mostly all hill stations are flanked by all sorts of conifers and draped in a garb of green, Kumaon changes its coat of blooms several times a year.

Mesmerizing Kumaon

Last October I along with my wife, son and my friend and his wife went to Lalkuan to visit Nainital, Almorah, Ranikhet, Kousani, Chowkari and Munsiary. What a fantastic journey it was! The sunrise at Kousani on Mt Trishul and at chowkari and the sunset at Munsiary on Parochially would remain in our memory for good .
