Answer: The easiest and most fascinating way to explore a region's a culture is through its various festivals and events. Be one with the people of Ranikhet and lose yourself in the celebratory air of the city. In true Kumaoni style, the city hosts several fairs, which are closely bound with the religion of the place.

Nanda Devi Mela, which takes place at various destinations in the Kumaon region, is an important fair in the town of Ranikhet. In the memory of goddess Nanda, the fair is usually held around the month of September, with great excitement and fervour. Devotees usually carry out a huge procession, with the idol of the goddess in a palanquin, singing folk songs and adding to the general air of merriment. Sweet shops serve lavish sweet dishes and special food preparations, for what festival is ever complete without some good food.

Being primarily a Hindu community, festivals like Diwali, Holi, Shivratri, etc are also celebrated with great enthusiasm. Let your soul rejoice with some truly Kumaon flavour and take home memories of a lifetime.
