Kumoan Region

Ranikhet is the place, which mirrors the best of the heavenly Himalayas; lush green forests, majestic mountains, delicate plant life and attractive wild life.

To view nature and its elements in full harmony, the right place to be a Ranikhet. According to popular belief, this spot had won the heart of Rani Padmini, queen of Raja Sudhardev. She chose this scenic place to be her abode and since then, it has come to be known as Ranikhet, literally "Queen's field". Ranikhet

At an altitude of 1829 mts. above sea level, this hill resort is undoubtedly a tourists' paradise. The scented mountain breeze, fresh and pure, the singing of birds, the panoramic view of the Himalayas-the sights, sounds and smells leave the onlooker spellbound.

During the rains, flowers sprout up everywhere in rainbow colours, branches of trees stoop with ripened fronts and sunlight peeping through the mist and clouds endow an enchanting effect all across Ranikhet.

As winter comes, the softly falling snowflakes cover the environs in sheets of pure whiteness. The charm of every season is irresistible in its own right. And this is what makes Ranikhet an all-season destination.

Being a cantonment (the place was selected as a hill station for British troops and accordingly the cantonment was established in 1869), the Kumaon Regimental Centre, Museum and Memorial are the jewels of Ranikhet.
