Day 5: Mukteshwar to Ramgarh

Ramgarh, a serene and secluded hill station in Kumaon region of Uttaranchal placed at a height of 1789 m above the sea level, is renowned for fruits and orchards.

Life in Ramgarh is so quiet and unhurried that the most exciting activity is a trip to the small, quaint village market. The tea stalls where villagers meet up is a good place to catch up with local life and spend hours doing nothing but being an observer of 'life passing by'. Ramgarh is a place to relax, to read and do nothing if you so choose. However, if you care to be more energetic, there are many local walks and excursions further afield. Climb up to Malla Ramgarh to the post office at the hamlet of Ramgarh and 5 kms to Malla Ramgarh itself.

Day 6: Ramgarh to Ranikhet

Located at an elevation of 1829 m above sea level, Ranikhet presents panoramic views of the Himalaya.

Apart from a military museum, this popular tourist spot presents trails for peaceful walks, views of snowcapped hills, and encourages you to arrange a small get together at its breathtaking picnic spots.

The focus of the town is a busy bazaar area, but you don’t have to walk far along the winding Mall Rd to be immersed in forest and tall English trees. Apart from a military museum, some peaceful walks and views of snowcapped peaks, there’s not much to do in Ranikhet – it’s much more of a retreat than some other hill stations.

Day 7: Ranikhet to Binsar

An ideal place for solitude lovers, poets or even romantic couple Binsar is a sleepy hamlet in Kumaon region of Uttarakhand. Located at an elevation of 2,412 m above sea level, this small town offers excellent views of Kumaon hills, Almora Town and greater Himalayan Valley. One of the major attractions of Binsar tour is the Binsar Wildlife Sanctuary that offers brilliant opportunity of getting closer to bare nature and allows capturing the best possible pictures of different wildlife loitering in their natural habitat.
