The general harsh climatic conditions of the Indian subcontinent usually make the people of the country naturally desire to escape to the hills to beat the heat. However, when everyone is busy preparing almost the same thing, the result is pandemonium. Overbooked hotels, exorbitant flight tickets, and packed tourist sites are only the tip of the chaos.


A tiny town 40 kilometers from Kathgodam, nestled among the renowned Nainital hills, is yearning to be your next summer vacation

The unusual settlement is a little village called Banlekhi situated among steep mountains, cascading waterfalls, and vast meadows. Say goodbye to the bother of traveling to renowned hill towns and instead relax in the lap of nature at Uttarakhand's best-hidden secret.


Why Travel to Banlekhi?

A walking tour in one of the remotest villages of India surprises you in many ways

Much of the village can be easily covered by foot. The residents of nature-kissed villages are said to be extremely sweet, kind, and hospitable, who will be more than delighted to invite you into their homes and have a fun-filled interaction with you. Here is an opportunity to learn about their deep-rooted culture and lifestyle, and expand the horizon of your mind by exploring more into their unique perspective of life.



Witness the beauty of the mighty Bhaalu Gaad Falls

Bhaalu Gaad falls, located approximately 12 kilometers from Banlekhi, are a famous tourist destination and a must-see if you're in the region. One may enjoy the gorgeous surroundings by having a modest picnic with their dear ones or even swimming in the crystal turquoise water. Furthermore, Bhalu Gaad falls are a paradise for birdwatchers. A must-visit for wildlife photographers and nature lovers indeed.



Enjoy Paragliding at one of India's lesser-known nature kissed destinations

Bhimtal is one of the country's most underrated paragliding destinations. Bhimtal is a beautiful spot to glide over the hills because of the undulating hills, huge meadows, and a stunning lake. In Bhimtal, there are numerous adventure planners who promise a safe and exciting experience that you will remember for the rest of your life.


Feel the spiritual aura of the mystical Banlekhi region

The Banlekhi region has a strong spiritual aura due to the presence of many divine temples in and around the village. The most well-known, Mukteshwar Dham, devoted to Lord Shiva, Parvati, Ganesha, and Nandi, is a must-see when in Banlekhi. Finally, no visit to Mukteshwar is complete without watching the magnificent dawn against the backdrop of the Nanda Devi Peak. The mountain is the second-highest in the country, and Mukteshwar is undoubtedly the finest site to see it. While getting out of bed early in the morning may appear to be a difficult chore, the breathtaking scenery will more than compensate.


Last but not the least, FOOD!

Banlekhi has no dining choices due to its distant location. However, one could always go to Mukteshwar and dine at world-class cafés, fine dining restaurants, and local eateries. Not only can one savour quality world cuisine and North Indian delicacies, but also traditional Kumaoni foods like kappa, sisunak saag, aloo ke gutke, and rus.
