Chaukori Tourism

The bowl-shaped town of Chaukori, located in the state of Uttaranchal, is nestled within the Himalayas at the height of over 2010 meters above sea level. As a tourist destination, it offers many beautifully breathtaking views– be it the lusciously green tea gardens, or the majestic snow-capped peaks of Nanda Devi and Panchachuli, the peaceful sunrise and sunsets, and the bejewelled night skies with the light of a million stars.

Chaukori is tucked away in the mountains, and if you're daunted by buggers like travel sickness, you may want to strike it off your list of vacation probables. Our advice' Don't. Chaukori is one of those places that can become a part of your yearly escapades and detox your mind and body of the alienating metropolitan experiences. Imagine waking up to the Himalayan scenery, every morning out your window, with days of exploring the wilderness, bird watching and walks in the lush meadows. Or planning a day out, visiting the spiritual retreats that are the helm of the town. Chaukori lets you sit back and lets its scenery and hospitality do the talking. The advantage of escaping to this place, which gets its maximum influx from Kolkata and Delhi, is that business is not the throbbing centre of everyone's existence. Life here, is something you take as it comes, with a cup of tea every morning, gazing at the snowcapped peaks and the unadulterated natural bounty.

If you return early and still have some day left, you can visit Ghunsera Devi temple.

For the days that you spend in Chaukori, you will want the serenity to seep in. As per the conventional way of exploring the land, go for nature walks and bird watching, for the area has enough green cover to provide for these activities.

- Carry OTC tablets for travel sickness, since the area sees are more than enough instances of travel sickness owing to the terrain.- Carry light snack for your trip on the road, since having full fledged meals isn't an option due to the extensive travelling.- Woolens for winters, but you may want to pack in a raincoat to be prepared for an off season shower that is common here.

Holidify's Opinion

  What's Great?

Undulating hills with greenery renders this place a beautiful look. Small place and less populated.

  What's not so Great?

Not many places to explore except temples. Transportation hassles.

For Whom

Chaukori is perfect for devotional people and those who love hilly regions. Great place for nature lovers and photo fanatics.
