Day 2

On the second we drove early as in the morning so that we can reach Dehradun on time. On the highway, we stayed at Namaste Midway for some light snacks.  We reached there on approx 2 PM. We went to visit Forest Research Institute and this was very amazing experience.

Day 3

Chakrata is at about 80 km far from Dehradun, on the Dehradun-Mussoorie Road. So we decided to enjoy the Kempty fall as well. We reached Chakrata in the evening. Since the place is not famous, online bookings are not available. We have to book hotel on our own. Rates do change here according weekend or weekdays. Food options are very limited here.

Day 4

Next day, the weather was amazing, we decided to go on rooftop and do some photography. After having breakfast, we went to visit Tiger Falls. It is considered as direct waterfall in India at the elevation of 312ft. It has 5 km trek.

In the evening, we visited Sunset point which is known as Chilmiri neck. It is the highest point in Chakrata, surrounded by Deodar trees. You can easily see Rohini, Swarg and some famous mountain peaks from here.

Day 1

We decided to go on a road trip from Gwalior to Chakrata. As the place is 630 km from our place, so we stayed in Delhi for a night.

Day 5

On the way back, we went Gurudwara Shri Paonta Sahib. It has the most amazing positive vibes 🙏. We enjoyed the Kada Prasad and Langar here. The bridge here is situated on Yamuna River at the border on Himachal Pradesh and Uttrakhand.
