Are you worried about how to get around Almora? If yes, then you can be at peace as traveling within the town with the wide range of transport it offers will be a cakewalk. Here is the list of various available options:

  • Bus

    This is the best option to commute if you want to cover all the major tourist attractions of Almora in one go. The fares are cheap, the experience is enriching and overall it is a treat in itself. Looking through the windows of a bus and exploring the town on your own is going to mesmerise in ways that you would have never imagined. A ticket for an adult costs around INR 5 to INR 30 depending upon the distance that you cover. While travelling in a bus, take care of your belongings and the loved ones who are with you during the ride. Remember, they are more important than getting a window seat. Sometimes the buses are too over crowded. You would want to miss the one that does not agree with your ‘this is my space’ agreement.

  • Taxi/Cab

    If you prefer your private space then a taxi or a cab should suit your preference. These are easily available from the centre of the town. The town does not have a wide variety of options when it comes to the operators as it is a small town and hence only some of them monopolise the market here. You can opt for either a Non AC taxi or an AC one. The taxis usually charge around INR 10 per kilometre but if they are charging more, you can always haggle over the fares with the private operators.

    Sit back, relax and enjoy the pristine beauty of the place and its balmy weather.

Also, because the town is so small, you would want to explore the most of it on foot. It’s really an experience in itself.

The ease of commuting in Almora adds to the good times that the place give you. Pack your bags and set free for an experience that will definitely be an addition to the list of your memories.
