Bageshwar Tourism

Bageshwar is a small town in Uttarakhand, tucked inconspicuously in the  Kumaon region of the Himalayan range. Situated at the confluence of the rivers Saryu and Gomti, with Bhileshwar and Nileshwar mountains, Bageshwar is known for the rivers, temples and mountains. The temple Baghnath dedicated to Lord Shiva and its mention in the Puranas attracts religious tourists to this place.

Shivratri Fair and Uttrayani Fair are celebrated in full zeal and enthusiasm here. If it is colourful fairs and festivals that attract you, or if hiking and trekking call you out of your comfort zone, you won't be disappointed. Bageshwar isn't a place that you want to sit back and relax in, there's an adventure and life pumping through every vein of this tiny town, which itself meets where the swift streams of Sarayu, Gomti and the latent Bhagirathi meet. While in Bageshwar itself, there are very limited options available to visit, mainly because of the overlapping of districts and the restrictive terrain, if you are ready to venture around Bageshwar, you have options aplenty to visit and make your trip worthwhile. You may not wish to visit Bageshwar on its own, but coupled with the amazing and absolutely explorable options around the city, you can make it a sure shot offbeat road trip and challenge yourself to an out of the box vacation.

Holidify's Opinion

What's Great?

The locals are very welcoming and friendly. Free of pollution.

What's Not So Great?

Not an ideal place if you wish to sightsee a lot. Limited food joints available.

For Whom?

Bageshwar is a destination which will quench your wanderlust as it is a trekker's paradise as it serves as the entry point to some of the most heart throbbing trekking routes in the region like Sunderdunga Glaciers, Kafni and Pindari Glacier. It is a place for the adventure enthusiasts as it offers various options for camping, mountaineering and sightseeing. It also attracts tourists from all over the country who visit this place to enjoy the natural beauty and serenity.

How To Reach Bageshwar

Owing to the hilly terrains, Bageshwar is well connected to the rest of India only by road. Regular bus services ply to and fro the city of Bagehswar, buses being operated both by private and government owners, especially the Uttarakhand State Road Transport Corporation. There is no flight connectivity to Bageshwar, owing to the absence of an airport. Some 295 km away is the Jolly Grant Airport in Dehradun, which is the nearest accessible airport that connects Bageshwar to the rest of India. The nearest railway station is in Kathgodam, around 150 km away from Bageshwar.

Plan your trip to Bageshwar wisely, it is a city which will supplement your journey as a leisure option or an option of just enjoying natural environment. If you are looking for a lot of sightseeing options with monuments or specific points, then Bageshwar is not the place to be.

Do carry lots of dry foodstuffs, unavailability of the same, and more importantly the unpredictable monsoon can be a bugger for ordering in, or eating out.

Taxi services are readily available for hire to the neighbouring areas, but bargain without an inkling of doubt, for the taxi services often overcharge unwary customers.
