Gwaldam is a bit lazy town, on the outskirt of Garhwal and Kumaon. Set in the midst of green woods and apple plantations, it is situated at a height of 1629 m.40 km far from Kausani, Gwaldam is 22 km far from Baijnath. The expressway that go through Bageshwar, branches off to take you through an interesting course in the midst of thick pine woods, against the background of the Himalayas.From Gwaldam, the street winds its way through thick backwoods and terraced fields dabbed with houses of Tharali and Narain Bagar upto the Ranikhet-Pandukhal street. It's the beginning stage for the absolute most energizing trekking courses in the Himalayas and the base for the trek to Roop Kund. As one gazes upward, one sees the snow-topped tops. The valley that extends for miles has the stream Pindari coursing through it. This little village with its far spread fields is one of nature's delights.
