A place with not that good climate

The Rudrapur climate is not very good compare to Pune, Bangalore. It shows high degree in every whether. The cleanliness of city is average. The roads are average but it is getting developed due to industrial area . . If you want to see hill station so Rudrapur may be good choice to stay. The Nainital Where the movie was shoo ted ( Chand k Par chalo is 74 kms from here, The KAAL movie was shoo ted in Carbett National Park which is just 50 kms far away from here. The city is having good 3 star hotels and also good connectivity to these hill stations.
