This hallowed city is like a magazine, with fascinating examples from history and daily life persuading travelers from all over the world to visit.

Snow View observation point (at 2,270m) is accessible by cable car and offers views of the town and surrounding mountains, notably Uttarakhand’s highest peak, Nanda Devi.

8. Almora

Kilmora, a short plant widespread in this area that was reported to be used for washing the utensils of the sun temple at Katarmal, is thought to be the source of Almora’s name. Almora is a scenic village set against the backdrop of the snow-capped Himalayas, situated on a 5-kilometer-long ridge at the southern edge of the Kashyap hills in the shape of a horse saddle. The Chand dynasty’s emperors used to call it their capital. Almora is noted for its diverse cultural heritage, one-of-a-kind handicrafts, and delectable cuisine. Swami Vivekananda, Rabindranath Tagore, Uday Shankar and his troupe, including Guru Dutt and Zora Sehgal, who came here for a performance, and Ravi Shankar, who contributed to the cultural enrichment of the area, are just a few of the famous persons who have visited Almora throughout the years.

Almora is the birthplace of Govind Ballabh Pant, a notable freedom warrior who served as the first chief minister of Uttar Pradesh and later as India’s Home Minister. Sir Ronald Ross, who won the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine in 1857 for his groundbreaking discovery of the malaria parasite, was born here. Jageshwar, Pindari, Mornaula, Mukteshwar, Binsar, and Ranikhet are just a few of the treks that may be started from here.

9. Jageshwar

Jageshwar, a peaceful temple town in Uttarakhand’s Almora district, is home to more than 100 stone temples devoted to Lord Shiva, earning it the nickname “Valley of Gods.” The temples reflect the finest design and are placed against a landscape of lush mountains and the shimmering Jat Ganga stream. Some are small, while others are rather large. The temple complex comprises over 125 temples and 174 sculptures, including idols of Lord Shiva and Parvati, and is protected by the Archaeological Survey of India (ASI). Some of these temples feature over 25 inscriptions on their walls and pillars.

The temples, according to the ASI, are around 2,500 years old and are from the post-Gupta and pre-medieval periods. The Katyuri dynasty rulers were primarily responsible for their construction and renovation. A red sandstone pillar with etched representations of humans and spiritual figures was unearthed here in recent years. The pillar is thought to have been constructed in the first century BC. During the Jageshwar Monsoon Festival in August and the Shivratri Mela in spring, Jageshwar draws large visitors.

10. Kausani

Coming to this gorgeous hill-station without a plan is the best way to see it. The magnificent play of colors on the mountain peaks surrounding Kausani can keep you occupied for a whole day. The breathtaking panoramic view of Himalayan peaks like Trishul, Nanda Devi, and the gigantic Panchachuli from this settlement, nestled on a ridge covered in chir and blue pine woods, is well-known. From one of the village’s many viewing platforms, take in a picture-perfect sunrise. The snow-capped peaks take on every colour of the rising golden orb as the sun peeks above the horizon.
