Chakrata Road Trip

View photos

Description

Chakrata is a picturesque hill station situated in the Dehradun district at a distance of 95 km from the state capital, Dehradun. Settled on a mountain between the Tons and Yamuna rivers. Chakrata has an advantage of not being a very popular tourist place and that is why it is considered as an offbeat place in Uttarakhand. Perched at a height of 2118 m above the sea level, the town offers panoramic views of snowcapped peaks of Garhwal Himalayas.
