Are you one of those who often feel like attending to the mountain’s call? Well, I am one of them and I am glad that I was born and brought up in Himalayas (Chakrata). And whenever I feel like to visit my hometown, I don’t need to ask family or friends to visit the place. For me, it is like “Mountains are calling and I must go”.

This article is to introduce you to one of the most peaceful and scintillating hill stations “Chakrata”. The area is known as Jaunsar-Bawar, which has a marked presence in a few surrounding villages. It is between the Tons and Yamuna rivers, at an elevation of 7000–7250 feet, 98 km from state capital, Dehradun; it was originally a cantonment of the British Indian Army. Chakrata has Himachal Pradesh in it west, and Mussoorie in the east (nearby around 73 km), Garhwal.

Boasting of an enchanting view of the Himalayas, and cultural ethos that speak of simplistic living amidst nature and harmony that could be easily seen in Chakrata.

It’s time to bring for you the splendid sceneries of Chakrata with following images and descriptions:

This the entrance of being entered into the Chakrata region. Auditorium of an army (The attraction of people). This auditorium has inside a cinema hall of around 150 people. Army people do mostly their functions in this hall only. If you can see above in the image- It’s an Army English Medium School (JAUNSAR PUBLIC SCHOOL) with play school till 10th standard. This school has its annual function or any other competitions programs except sports day held in this Auditorium.

We have a small market known as Sadar Bazar Chakrata. Where we have Schools, hospital, Cantonment board area, Secretariat office as well. And here village people come and do shopping for themselves, buy goods for their home, enjoy the restaurant food snacks as well and adore the life they are living.

This is Chakrata! The beautiful hill station to live peacefully.

Note: Come, Visit and Explore but don’t spoil the environment and beauty of the area. Enjoy the trip but make it clean while leaving. This is what we all Chakrata people want from the tourist. We have numbers of hotels and resorts which are budget friendly(you can GOOGLE it)
