There is a rustic charm in the mystical towns of Himalayas which always fascinates me. Iam yet to comprehend those alluring persuade though. The magical spell of its untainted, unspoiled air which works wonders on me. Strolling through the astounding green pastures amidst the beautiful landscape always feels like a dream. Or maybe the myriad unheard stories I have stumbled upon luckily or the prevailing humbleness which bowls me. The inquisitiveness to come back to these tranquil mountains keeps me on toe.This time I landed myself into the tiny heart of Uttarakhand Peora, which is nestled amidst the picturesque valley of Kumaon region, abounded by dense pine forests and majestic Shivalik range in the background.
Rolling hills, winding roads, pine forests and trees laden with apples, oranges and other fruits set the scenery at Peora, a tiny Hamlet of Uttarakhand. Lying in the cradle of the mighty Himalayas, the small village is laden with bountiful apple and apricot orchards and is very close to Mukteswar and Almora.
Peora promises a weekend spent in a hamlet with nature for company. The village is located in Kumaon, popularly known as the ‘fruit bowl’. The trees are mostly laden with apricots and plums. When you wake up in the morning, be prepared to be in awe of the beauty of the Himalayas. You can take a morning walk through the jungles while randomly plucking plums and apricots from the surrounding orchards. There are only a few vehicles that ply on the road. The best view is of the sun setting against the backdrop of hills.
