Top 5 offbeat places to visit in Uttarakhand this autumn

The scorching summers have gone and the rains are soon going to bid us goodbye. This means that it’s time to bring out those walking shoes and explore some of the most gorgeous hill stations without the fear of getting burnt to crisp, rain playing spoilsport or heavy cloud cover obstructing the view of your favourite Himalayan peaks.

Autumn is the season of fewer tourists, roads lined with leaves, golden sunsets and wind in your hair. If you are looking to experience all of these, here are some places in Uttarakhand that are waiting to be explored.

Majkhali

Located just 12 kms away from popular Ranikhet, Majkhali’s tranquillity comes as a surprise to visitors expecting the crowd associated with other hill stations. One can see a bunch of Tudor cottages dotting the roads, a couple of army parade grounds and a local market selling essential, daily ware. Majkhali is also a paradise for walkers, and is best experienced walking along its winding lanes or hiking through its lush forest trails. You can spot birds, hitch a ride to nearby tourist spots, or even just sit back with a book, take occasional glances at the majestic Himalayas and proceed on quiet walks in the woods.
