Day 1

Chakrata is a small hill station in the state Uttarakhand. It lies 95 Kms from state capital Dehradoon. It is a quiet yet amazing place to relax and be up close with nature. 

It is at a height of 2100M with beautiful waterfalls and short treks leading to 360 degree views of mountain ranges. 

Temperature varies from 15-30 degrees in summers while in winters it varies between -3 to 15 degrees. It receives a moderate rainfall and the roads leading to Chakrata can b dangerous if planning a trip during Monsoon season.

The best part is the route to Chakrata. The drive has scenic green hills and amazing roads and that is why it is also called Mini Switzerland.
