Chaukori is a dream, surrounded by the towering Himalayan peaks and dense forests. As the name suggests, it’s like a bowl, cupped within the Himalayan heartland.
At a height of 2,010 m, and 173 km away from Nainital, Chaukori is not just another hill station. It’s for the very few, who want to be there, in the majestic proximity of the Himalayas for an unbound view of the Nanda Devi and Panchchuli peaks.
Chaukori is one of the few places in Kumaon, where you will find tea gardens. It is an idyllic holiday resort amidst unspoilt nature – a land bestowed with natural abundance, fruit orchards, and the forests of Pines, Oaks and Rhododendrons.
One of the most magnificent aspects of holidaying in Chaukori is the fabulous sunrise and sunset that you are treated to. The night sky is studded with a million stars that simply take your breath away. The charming little town of Chaukori is unlike any other hill station you have seen. Chaukori is a somnolent, peaceful hamlet in Pithoragarh district of the Kumaon Hills of Uttarakhand.
