A place where you can scream out you lungs empty, where you can meditate, where you lie on soft grass whole day. All these things will provide you only one result and that is PEACE. Peace away from home, work, city, parties and crowd. If you are looking for such place where there is no one to see you, judge you and command you then Ramtal in Chakrata is for you.
