Summer break is on

Wanna flee from home

Then what are you waiting for….

It is time of summers and each one of us have vacation on our mind. Pack your bags to step out of your homes and refresh yourself. If you are exhausted of city life and wish to rest at some isolated place for few days then this article is for you.

Kanatal is your rescue in these hot summers. Located at a distance of just 47 kms from Mussoorie and 76 kms from Dehradun, it is a very small place, best for camping and adventure activities. If you love a bit of chilling and thrill in life, it is a must go place.

Do not keep your expectations too high, just go and relax; you will adapt yourself in the environment in an hour or so and will love the place. It is a nature’s treat to you to stay in the woods and gain peace. Away from the hustle bustle of city life the dwellings are usually situated in the jungles which makes it more enthralling. Isolated from the overrated destinations where you will find flocks of tourists making it difficult for you to have a feeling of a vacation, it is worth the stay.

HOW TO REACH:

Take a bus or a train or a flight till Dehradun and then take any local bus/cab to reach Kanatal.

Alternatively, there is a route from Haridwar Rishikesh via Chamba to reach Kanatal.

It is a polite request to all that as the planet earth is already on the verge of degradation, kindly do not litter on the roads or throw plastic casually, kindly bring it back along with you. A small initiative can lead to big changes. Also, try using public transport as the more we take private vehicles, the more traffic it gets and leads to rise in temperature at such beautiful destinations.
