Ranikhet reflects the very best of the heavenly Himalayas; their lush green forests, majestic mountain peaks, exotic plant life and attractive wild life. To see nature and its elements in full harmony, the right place to be is Ranikhet.
According to a 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”. At an altitude of 1829mtres, above sea level, this hill resort is undoubtedly a tourists’ paradise.
