Tour Details

Over the centuries Almora has been coveted by many suitors – the Chand Kings established their capital here; the Gorkhas ravaged it during their expansion in early 19th century and the British fell in love with the pleasant climate and flocked here during the warm summer months. But Almora is best known as the cultural capital of Kumaon Himalayas where the grandeur of towering Himalayan peaks meet the vibrant culture and traditions of the hill folk.

Highlights
  • If you arrive in Almora on Dussehra day you will find effigies of not just Ravana, Kumbhkarna and Meghnaad but several other Rakshashas being led by dance troupes through the bazaars. This unique tradition of putting up effigies of many villainous characters of the Ramayana is complimented by days of Ramlila - recognized by UNESCO as one of the most representative Ramlilas along with places like Ayodhya, Varanasi, Vrindavan and Madhubani - leading up to Dussehra and organized by different mohallas.
  • Holi celebrations – broadly classified as Khadi (standing), Baithaki (sitting) and Mahila Holi- are spread over many days where people assemble to sing songs and savour delectable dishes
  • Take a stroll to Crank’s Ridge and enjoy the unhindered views of the imposing Nanda Devi – she is the patron goddess of Uttarakhand and has a beautiful temple dedicated to her in Almora. Crank’s ridge was a popular destination during the 60s and 70s for hippies traveling to India – a few of them stayed back so don’t be surprised if you find seemingly foreign kids blabbering in a pahari accent
  • If you are searching for a place to feel the pulse of the lower Himalayas head to the temple of Kasar Devi nestled deep into the woods and get lost in your thoughts.
