Mukteshwar Tourism

Mukteshwar is a small hill town located around 50 km from Nainital in Uttarakhand. Known for adventure sports and a dazzling view of Himalayan ranges, Mukteshwar is named after the 350-year-old Shiva Temple housed here called Mukteshwar Dham. 

The quaint town got its name from the belief that Lord Shiva killed a demon here and gave him Mukti or salvation. With lush green trails and narrow lanes, Mukteshwar is a popular destination for trekking, apart from rock climbing and rappeling. Major attractions here are the picturesque orchards, coniferous forests, rolling meadows, and little cottages and homes built in quaint colonial style. The charm of Mukteshwar lies in spending tranquil time - enjoying nature and listening to the chirping of the birds.

Holidify's Opinion

What's Great?

Beautiful hill station. Lovely snow capped mountains. Brilliant views from the town. Not crowded. Not so expensive.

What's Not So Great?

Winters are a bit too cold. Slightly difficult to reach.

For Whom?

Mukteshwar is a great place to visit, especially for those living in the north. Lots of people from the cities of Delhi, Dehradun and Chandigarh come here. Travellers looking for a relatively offbeat hill station in Uttarakhand should visit here.
