Hill Station - Munsiyari

Munsiyari enroute Milam GlacietMunsyari 125 kms from Pithoragarh and at an altitude of 2135. A 80 miles journey from Pithoragarh is full of adventure. Flora and fauna changes as one travels, from chir to deodar, deodar to surai and spur to paper tree and rhododendrons. At Nachani(a midway village) greets you with delicious food, resting sites, cold and hot drinks providing tents for stay and enjoying water spoils, angling, river rafting or simply have a cool- cool dip in the Namic glacier originated Ramganga from Nachani. Sulphur springs and the majestic Virthi fall. Which falls from the height of 125 mt. Now the road aligns the higher mountains, the air becomes cooler reaching the top.

It is a day travel through Roseate dawns and crimson dusks can leave you simply searing in the snow laden summits for hours. The picturesque location and water falls along the bank of Gori Ganga may end you exhausting the entire camera roll. It is a splendid time in Munsiyari between March to April, when the whole jungle turns red with rhododendron flowers with gardens- gardens of rhododendron trees having pink, red, dark pink and white flowers combining the Panchachuli peak. It is a site worth watching. A days trek to the nearby village like Darkot 4 kms and Daranti 7 kms can lead to an intimate knowledge of the culturally rich style of the rural inhabitants of Munsiyari.
