Cradled in the wilderness of Himalayan ranges, the sprawling town of Almora shaped like a horse-shoe is a hill station that boasts of a pre-British heritage and an adyllic vibe.
Famous for its rich cultural heritage, unique handicrafts, sumptuous cuisine and magnificent wildlife, coupled with an easy accessibility, Almora promises its tourists a visit full of fun and unforgettable moments. This agrarian town has two major rivers- Koshi (Kaushaki) and Suyal (Salmali) flowing through it. "The enchanting beauties of the Himalayas, their bracing climate and the soothing green that envelopes you leaves nothing more to be desired. I wonder whether the scenery of these hills and the climate are to be surpassed, if equaled, by any of the beauty spots of the world. After having been nearly three weeks in Almora Hills, I am more than ever amazed why our people need go in Europe in search of health. " - Mahatma Gandhi

There are two hotels in Jalna. One is Hotel Elphinstone ( is a branch of Hotel Elphinstone, Nainital) and the other is KMVN hotel being run by a private party. Though you can visit round the year except rainy season. The best views of Himalayas- Peaks like Nanda Devi, Trishul, Panchachuli, Nanda Khot etc. can be viewed during Oct to March. These peaks can be seen with bare eyes. The concept of Britishers is very much visible in Jalna, a bungalow of British era is also there, which is also under the care of Hotel Elphinstone. A place away from the crowded and noisy hill stations like Shimla, Nainital, Mussoorie etc.
Located in the beautiful Kumaon mountains. Pleasant temperature throughout the year. Rich culture and history.
Road travel is the only way to reach Almora. Summer is a very busy season, and the destination is crowded by tourists.
Almora is the perfect destination for everyone. It is very popular with honeymooners, adventure travellers, photographers, families and groups of friends looking for somewhere to cool off.
