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.
The invigorating mountain breeze, 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 every where in rainbow colours, branches of tress stoop with ripened fruits and sunlight peeping through the mist and clouds, endow an enchanting effect all across Ranikhet.
