Peora is an absolute paradise for wildlife and bird enthusiasts. I feasted my eyes enough with the colours of vivid avian guests during my village walk spotted in the forest and across the country side. The cover of star studded night blanket and far off twinkles from Almora town filled me with much joy. Day treks are also organised to the nearby village to soak in the cultural and social milieu of the place.
Peora isn’t a destination that comes with a promise of thrilling activities. It urges you to slow down. Relish nature’s sights and sounds in the serene lap of the Himalayas and give life a path. A series of tapered, zigzag roads surrounded by fragrant pine trees will lead you to this little hill station tucked inside the belly of Uttarakhand’s rolling hills. Definitely for the ones who want to get break free from shackles of city life.
