Ramgarh, nestled in Kumaon Hills, Uttarakhand, is a beautiful village with natural beauty all around. This place has very few hotels and resorts, and we stayed at The Ramgarh Bungalows, owned by the Neemrana group. Ramgarh is a one hour drive from Naini Tal, and offers beautiful views of the mountains, valleys, and lakes. It is a perfect destination for anyone looking for some peace and quiet, away from the hustle bustle of city life.

Day 1

About 25 kms from Ramgarh, is Mukteshwar, another beautiful town in the Himalayas. There is an old temple here, and on the way there are an array of adventure sport activities on offer. Ziplining, mountain climbing, rappelling, and so on. The place offers amazing views of the valley, and has a host of scenic and organic cafes and restaurants. On the way back to Ramgarh, is a place called Bhalu Gaad waterfalls. It is a 1.5 hr trek from the parking lot, and provides picturesque views of flora and fauna in the hills. Once you reach the waterfall, the beauty of the place is mesmerizing. A dip in the pond is not advised, it is freezing cold, and the depth is deceiving.

The next day, our hotel guide advised a trek to Garhganchal, a 5 km trek to the top of a mountain, which has a temple. The trek is pretty steep and provides quite an exercise for the lungs. The peak of the mountain offers a breathtaking view of Bhimtal, The Sainik School, and Almora. The temple here is managed by Yogi Ranganathji, and his hospitality is simply outstanding. Tired by the trek and with the sun shining down upon us with no mercy, the Yogi offered us a refreshing cup of tea, along with dhurries to rest ourselves on, and gain energy for the trek back to the hotel.
