Kanda in Bageshwar
This scenic location, located 25 kilometers from Bageshwar, is a must-see for environment lovers. Kanda is extremely close to an ancient Bhadrakali temple. Kanda, a picturesque hill station and the home of peace (Shantiniketan), is located at an elevation of 1500-1900 meters above sea level.
It captivates the senses and imaginations of inhabitants and visitors alike, being surrounded by gorgeous mountains and terraced farms. Both locals and visitors love the beauty of the area and benefit from the clean air and healthy environment that mountain scenery provides. There was formerly a local caste called Kanyal, according to traditions and older residents. Kanda gets its name from this caste.
Kanda’s hills are particularly appealing to foreign visitors, and are frequently compared to the Swiss Alps. Since 1988, travelers of various nationalities have come to volunteer at the center for paying guests and ecotourism. Visitors to Sonargaon observe, participate in, and enjoy communal life during their stay, which might range from a few days to several months. They also obtain a thorough grasp and knowledge of Kumoani culture and way of life, as well as deeply spiritual and religious beliefs, and thus have a one-of-a-kind and pleasurable experience.
