Bageshwar Tourism

Bageshwar is a small town in Uttarakhand, tucked away in the Kumaon region of the Himalayan range inconspicuously. Situated at the confluence of the rivers Saryu and Gomti, with Bhileshwar and Nileshwar mountains, Bageshwar is known for its 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 with life pumping through every vein of this tiny town.

For the sightseeing enthusiast, unfortunately Bageshwar does not offer too many places to visit due to the overlapping of districts and the restrictive terrain.

What is the local food in Bageshwar?

Bageshwar is a really small, warm and welcoming town, but is not as developed as its Kumaoni counterparts to offer fancy dining options. Local eateries pop out of every nook and cranny of the city offering you with some delectable local cuisine including aloo-puri (potato gravy and fried Indian bread) and sweets like Balmithai. You may want to consider carrying some dry, packaged or preserved food if on a road trip or long journey as they aren't easily available here.

What is the best time to visit Bageshwar?

One can visit Bageshwar all year round, except for monsoons. Since the city is in the lap of the Himalayas, one can imagine the dreamy, cloudless, breezy summers that Bageshwar offers. While the monsoons offer dewy mornings and slightly moist afternoons, they are dangerous for their unpredictability. Heavy rainfall in this region can, apart from ruining plans, cause landslides in this region. Winters can be harsh but worth it if one enjoys an all-white scenery.

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.
