Kanatal

kantal

Kanatal, a quaint little hamlet in Uttaranchal state, located just 300 kilometers, or 6-7 hours journey by road from Delhi is perched at an altitude of over 8,500 feet. Kanatal offers a spectacular view of the snow-clad Garhwal Himalayas and lush green forests.

With summer temperatures ranging from 10-25 degrees Celsius, and between minus 5 and 18 degrees in winters, the pleasant climate and lush green natural environs of Kanatal offer a welcome respite from the heat and dust-laden environs of crowded cities and towns in the plains.

The high point of the year at Kanatal occurs between December and February, when over 50 inches of powder snow carpets its areas, creating a spectacular Cottonwood Canyon and transforms the landscape into a ravishing white wonderland.
