Best time to visit pithoragarh

Pithoragarh is Kumaon’s third largest city and the launching pad for treks to the sacred Kailash Manasarovar Lake in Tibet, to Milam Glacier and the Darma Valley.

It is an important base for the Indian Army as Pithoragarh is a border area. So carry along good boots and trek around the mountains here. In the city itself is the hilltop Pithoragarh Fort, built by the Gorkhas when they took over the town in 1789. Chandak nearby (8 km) is a beautiful hill from where you get the best view of the Himalayas.

The locals strongly believe in the Manu Temple here. There is also an excuse of a reserved forest named Pithoragarh Banya Udyan and a small golf course.
