Chakrata is a quaint little cantonment which is 93 km from Dehra Dun and home to a branch of the army's Special Forces. Blessed with natural bounteousness, it is a picturesque spot away from the crowd in the peaceful environment. It is an ideal spot for nature lovers. It is rich in varied flora and fauna and gets covered with snow during winters.

Jeolikote is located in between Nainital and Haridwar highway. It was first discovered by Sri Aurobindo and Swami Vivekananda. It is an ideal place to spend your summer holidays and a perfect haven for solitude and healing. It is like a vintage English cottage. So tramp the hills to discover ancient cottages and shrines to unravel the Jeolikote's colonial past. Also, it is a nice destination for adventurous tourists who like to trek.
