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.
