Kotdwara

Located in the south-western part of Uttarakhand, Kotdwara is known for its scenic magnificence and numerous temples. It is situated at an elevation of 395 metres above sea level, at the foothills of the mighty Shivaliks. Jolly Grant Airport is the nearest airport to Kotdwara. The town is also well connected to the major cities of India by railway networks as well as motorable roads and can be thus reached comfortably. Kotdwara has a number of majestic temples. Located just 2km away from the town, Sidhbali Temple is the most prominent one. Devoted to Goddess Durga, Durga Devi Temple is another major temple in the region. It offers an extremely serene and silent environment. Besides these two most frequented temples of Kotdwara, Kanvarshram is also worth paying a visit to. Situated on the banks of river Malini, it is the ashram of Karnav Rishi and holds utmost historical and cultural importance. Jim Corbett National Park, Lansdowne, Koteshwar Mahadev and Devi Bhagwati Temple – all around an hour's drive away – are the other places of interest worth visiting.

Before the sunrise we reached Kotdwara, Had light snacks and tea then started to moving towards our destination. We reached Lansdowne before 6 am and we took our car direct to Snow view Point. As i was so tired and there was no chances of getting hotel on that moment so I slept in car for while.

Route to kotdwara..!!Well kotdwara is 6 hours journey from Delhi if not stucked in a jam... So its better to hurry up in the morning as soon as possible... Well there are many ways to reach kotdwara from Delhi... Volvo's and state buses are most common. One can also get an overnight train to kotdwara but the frequency is very limited.But if you have a thing for road trips like me then nothing is better than driving down to the place. If we can get a like minded partner in crime then nothing is better than that and for the very same reason I called up my friend for the trip...So the trip started early in the morning in order to leave Delhi before the daily jam and be touching over the highway by the breakfast time... Delhi highways have got best to offer over it's highways and one can always take a quick halt at any dhaba or restraunts for grabbing a bite.We took our halt at bikaner's joint. The joint was decent enough where you can have hygenic food at decent price... We moved ahead hitting the highway once again... Only with filled stomach this time. The whole essence of the drive changes when you are driving on straight broad highways with filled stomach having morning breeze falling over your face and music at background... Good music is one thing that is a must for a good road trip.The highway part very smooth and enjoy if not struck in traffic... After meerut you take a right turn for kotdwara via bijnour najibabad. The roads are bit rough in these areas as expected in UP, but I am sure the government is doing there best to improve their condition.

Once you get outside Kotdwara station, you’ll find a few shared jeeps leaving for Pauri. These jeeps are operated by locals and they always welcome you with a charming smile. Often they’ll offer you a front seat especially when they see that you are a tourist. But all of this depends on first come first serve basis.The jeep moves and slowly the road become narrow and much narrower. The jeep drops you near the Kanvasharam GMVN rest house. This small guest house is located amidst warm natural surroundings and the backdrop of forested hills of Rajaji National Park stands in the backdrop. For solo and budget travellers, this guest house offers dormitory stay where you can share beds with other travellers.
