Chakrata is one of the offbeat (read less crowded) destination in Uttarakhand so close to Delhi yet so far. The place is a green covered paradise and boasts lots of snow in winter. The Kempty Falls and Tiger Falls nearby are beautiful day out from here. Driving through the hilly roads is also great fun.

Visit Chakrata for :

  • Snowfall
  • Mountain Views
  • Waterfalls
  • Colonial Hotels
  • Peace

Chakrata is about 7 hours drive. Visit via Mussoorie and return via Yamuna Nagar.

The elevation of Chakrata is ~2100 m ASL. In winters is snows heavily and expect whiteout from January onwards.

There are limited hotels here and make sure you reserve well in advance.

Plan for atleast 3 days travel ex-delhi. Leave early so that you reach by late evening. If in doubt about road conditions, take a local taxi and explore hassle free. Visit Deoban which is higher and even more beautiful.
