|That's the summer version of Ranikhet Golf Course|
A short getaway to Ranikhet made me realize that there’s never a bad time to visit a place. There are a variety of good times. We got to see a ‘brown and beautiful’ Ranikhet in the month of May.
Tea gardens, orchards and trees – all were painted brown. There was barely any green. Thus, to see the town’s burgeoning lush beauty, a spring visit would be an ideal choice. A summer break would show you a different side, which is enchanting in its own way!
Ranikhet is an easy reach from Kathgodam station. It takes around one and a half hours by road to be here. There are many interesting things to experience in this modest hill station as long as you have the spirit to explore. If you want to have a relaxed and laid-back holiday, you can find a comfortable spot where you can just sit and gaze at the lovely mountains. For those who love to hike and seek some adventure, can go deep into the forests and probably have an encounter with the wild animals. Who knows, you may spot a leopard!
Let me make a point that it’s a destination that gives you a true break from your usual bustling life. It’s unlike a typical holiday destination, where tourists throng the place and there’s an array of shops to cash in on the opportunity of making money. Rather, the place is quiet and very unassuming. It made me feel grateful that there are places, which are still unspoiled by commercialization.
