Ranikhet, meaning Queen's Meadow, is an alluring hill station covered with lush green forests and meadows.It is a picture perfect place covered in thick pine and oak trees located at the foot of the western Himalayas.

Ranikhet is one of those rare hill stations that gives nature precedence over man. So don’t be surprised when you come face to face with a sign that cautions, “Leopards have the right of way”. They do. So do monkeys that swing through its trees, the deer and bears that hide in the thick of its groves or the birds that soar in its sky.


Ironically, this thickly forested paradise was brought into existence by the British, who in the late 1860s came looking to house army and administration in a hilly “station” that could provide both strategic and economic advantages to the colonial masters. The natural beauty of the Ranikhet highlands was a hands-down winner.

The tranquil meadows surrounded by soaring pine and leafy oak forests with a 180 degree panoramic view of the Himalaya provided ideal environs to house an army regiment. What’s more, its surrounding environs provided the most important natural economic resources of the time, such as timber and resin, both of which were used in the construction of one of the largest railroad systems in the world.This place is a must visit!
