Chaukori

Chaukori is a dream, surrounded by towering Himalayan peaks and dense forests. At a height of 2,010 meters, above the sea level, Chakori is not just another hill station, but it is for the very few, who want to be there, in the majestic proximity of the Himalayas for an unbound view of the Nanda Devi & Panchchuli peaks.

Chaukori is one of the few places in Kumaun, where you will find tea gardens. As the name suggests, it is like a bowl, cupped within the Himalayan heartland. It ia an idyllic holiday resort amidst unspolit nature, a land bestowed with natural abundance, fruit orchards, and the jungles of Pines, Oaks and Rhododendrons.
