Delhi -> Dehradun -> Vikasnagar -> Chakrata -> Vikasnagar -> Dehradun ->Delhi
So long weekend was coming and I and my husband were ready with our plans for a short relaxing trip to Chakrata. Because of Demonetisation we had only 4000 INR in hand.
Chakrata is a small cantonment town in Dehradun district in Uttarakhand.It is situated between the Tons and Yamuna Rivers, at an elevation of 7000–7250 feet, 98 km from state capital, Dehradun and was originally a cantonment of British Indian Army.
The area is known as Jaunsar-Bawar, belonging to the Jaunsari tribe, which still has a marked presence in few surrounding villages.
Chakrata is an access-restricted military cantonment, and foreigners are restricted from visit. Notably, it is the permanent garrison of the secretive and elite Special Frontier Force, also known as Establishment 22 (called "Two-Two"), the only ethnic Tibetan unit of the Indian Army, which was raised after the Indo-China War of 1962.
