Kanatal, the perfect camping and trekking site in budget

May 16, 2019 5:07 PM |

If you are one of those solo travellers or want to discover something out of the box, something quaint and yet untrodden, this is what you have been looking for! Situated amidst the serene mountains of Uttarakhand, it’s a small suburb of Mussoorie.

Located close to the major hill stations of the state like Mussoorie (33 kms) and Chamba (12 kms) this is a perfect getaway from the mainstream crowd. Situated at a height of 8500 ft above the sea level, 300 kms from Delhi- the amazing weather and the untouched beauty of this place is well connected via roads.

People usually come here to camp and trek and lose themselves in the immense lush green beauty.

Here’s your guide to weather before you plan to visit this place-


Summer (April - June)

Summers too remain cool and windy in Kanatal unlike many other Indian hill cities. The average summer heat in Kanatal ranges between 25 degree Celsius to 30 degree Celsius but the heat is exceptionally short-lived. This is the ideal time for going on treks and exploring the wealth of flora and fauna that Kanatal has to offer.


Winter (October - March)

Winters here are harsh with regular snowfall. But it’s the ideal time to visit the place if you are looking forwards to some fun with snow. Multiple festivals are celebrated in Winters only because this is the time when residents are free to socialize and celebrate. The temperatures range from 1 degree Celsius to 15 degree Celsius which makes carrying woolen, thick clothes a necessity.


Monsoon (July - September)

The Monsoon season in Kanatal, consisting of July and August, is not the best season to visit the hill station as a tourist. The place receives heavy downpour in the month of July and August. This is when the roads to Kanatal are not in their best form and should be avoided. Landslides become a common feature during the Monsoon period.


Things to do in Kanatal

Start your holiday with some sightseeing in Kanatal. You can visit the Surkanda Devi Temple, which is about 5 km from the city center. Kodai Jungle in Kanatal is a perfect place for trekking and nature walks. You can also engage yourself in some fun adventure activities like rock climbing or valley crossing. You can also drive to the dam view site of Tehri Dam. Experience a homestay and engage in the culture of the locals or go on a jungle safari by hoping on to a jeep.
