Answer: So you're reached Ranikhet and have chalked out all the places you want to go visit. But how? Each city has its own unique means for people to move around and Ranikhet is no different. Here's a peek into the various means of travel within Ranikhet:

  • Walk

    The ideal way to explore any hilly terrain is by giving those legs some exercise. Walking allows you to set your own pace for sightseeing and gives you enough time to soak in the magic of Himalayas. Since Ranikhet is spread over several levels, walking could even turn out to be a faster option as you can tread the shortcuts where vehicles can not go. Get those walking shoes out of hiding and venture out into the beautiful woods with only birds and fresh air to keep you company.

  • Car

    If you want to travel in complete comfort, SUVs and cabs might be your best option. These are also ideal for travelling to famous tourist hot-spots which are slightly away from the main town limits of Ranikhet. You could hire a cab within Ranikhet, which some hotels even arrange for their guests on request. If you're coming in from Pantnagar, you could even strike a deal with the cab-driver to accompany you throughout your trip and take you back to Pantnagar at the end of your trip. Rates can vary during off- and peak-seasons, so make sure you check with a few cab operators before settling on a price.

With these options to move around, you'd be wishing for longer days so you could stay out more. Are you ready to be charmed by this queen's meadow yet?
