Climate is beautiful throughout the year; Summers are starting from April to June during these months weather varies between 30 to 15-degree C. Monsoons occupy most of July & August I would not recommend to visit during monsoons as you cannot move too much around moreover the road conditions can get bad. Autumns from September to November again a good time to visit. December & January can be a little harsh but good for snow lovers, temperature varies between 2 to 10-degree C. February & march spring season also can be visited as it has clear views and blue skies.
It offers variety of accommodation from luxurious cottages to budget home stay & some commercial hotels. I selected Sara’s Chalet in Dudkhanedar which is around 14 km ahead of Ramgarh for 1st halt.
Recommended properties in the region: Sara’s Chalet, Bob’s Place, Woodnotes, The Barkat cottages, Taradale cottage & Versha homestay.
Time has been a major constraint when it comes on deciding where to go, I believe even if we spend our entire life traveling the Himalayas it's not enough. We were a group of nine people, seven coming from Delhi & two of them from Kanpur so we decided Uttarakhand as its closer from Delhi & Kanpur both. I have been traveling in Uttarakhand since I was a child so I have a fair bit of knowledge of the region & good places within the state. Idea of this trip was more of a relaxing & spending time amongst friends, so I had to make sure we don't spend most our time on road just driving and reaching destinations & repeat.
I picked the higher point of Ramgarh, we can be away from the noise and crowd of Nainital and also enjoy the nature and my favorite view of "the Himalayas". Roads are mostly good to drive & snow lovers can witness snow in winters as well. In my opinion it's a good halt for first night for people coming from plains. I'm choosy when it comes to accommodations, particularly when we have many to choose from, I went through many properties and finalized one of the best cottages in the region called the Sara's Chalet.
