0 people found this answer useful Useful ?Yes

Be it a vacation to any spot in the world, there are always some caution signs which should be dangling in your head! If there are some of them in your head for Almora, here we are with some quick and helpful wisdom.

  • Whenever you are in a hilly area, do not forget that you have to come back from there before it gets dark. Being in a town which is anyway less populated, it becomes all the more important.

  • A pair of walking shoes will act as your best friends during a visit to Almora.

  • Sometimes, it gets really windy and wet in Almora, so you should be prepared with the proper clothing to beat the cold.

  • Never be too friendly with wild animals that are just strolling around and especially the monkeys. Do not offer them food or anything for that matter. Also, don’t try to touch them or scare them off. Live and let live.

  • The trails here are easy but yet unattended. You are on your own. So, if you are the types who get adventurous but when they know there is someone to take responsibility, then try and avoid trekking or hiking on the trails in Almora. Even then, if you want to do it, do it in groups.

  • Almora is a small place and the people are helpful but like any vacation spot, the locals shouldn’t be blindly followed. If you ask someone for directions or any such thing then you should always recheck it with two or three people more.

  • The shopping experience is never complete if you haven’t bargained enough. Haggle over prices for everything that you buy from the place. That also applies to the fares quoted by the local transport people.

Keep all this in mind and your trip will be one of the best you had in your life!
