Ramnagar is a small town in Uttrakhand, also known as Jim Corbett City. Ramnagar is 4.5 hours journey from Delhi which makes it the best option for a weekend destination.Its well connected by Roads,Railways and little far but with flights too(Pantnagar Airport) .Roads are clean, scenic and super safe. People Speak Kumauni, Garhwali, and Hindi here. Hotel Booking is very easy here as it has lots to option from Luxury to Supercheap hotels. Try to arrange a 'Pahadi thali' if possible. You can have local pulses(Gahat, Bhatt, Soybean), Ragi Rotis, local leafy veggies(Pumpkin's Tukke(i don't know what we call it in English ) and Jholi(Kadhi) with Bhat(Rice).Pahadi people eat very simple food without too many spices like garam masala, chole masala etc etc.Food is simple and delicious here. Every family in villages have their vegetable garden full of local veggies, limes, and herbs. Its a beautiful and peaceful life in Uttrakhand. If you are not traveling by car then take an auto and just explore the sprawling jungles, falls, villages, Kosi Bairaj and Seetavani, Garjiya Devi Mata Temple. Enjoy Maggie and Chai combo in less than 50 rs at any tea shop, You can ask them to cook it yourself too..:)
Don't forget to Buy fruits in Summer season(May-June). It's Litchi and Mango time here and there is no better place to buy these summer fruits than the Litchi-Mango Orchard itself at super cheap rates.
Ramnagar is also known as Gateway of Kumaun and Garhwal. I have my ancestral house in Garhwal, so I am posting few pictures of that too. This village is completely uncommercialized and full of walnut, mango, banana trees. Whenever in Ramnagar try to visit Nainital too because it's Gorgeous.If you are traveling to Ramnagar and have any doubt about trip planning just message me.Please avoid using polythene bags in this lovely town. Ramnagar is a place that offers you the most relaxing experience amidst the forests.Book a tent instead of booking a hotel and go for a jungle sidewalk (in daytime only), bird watching, cycling or little trek.You don't need to book a Corbett Safari Package for this.Enjoy this super budget destination...:)
