Description

Kanatal is the kind of place that you visit to get away from all the worldly distractions and relax in the lap of nature. Kanatal is a small village in Uttrakhand surrounded by mountains all over and Kanatal elevation is 2590 m or 8500 ft.

Camping in Kanatal is quite famous and it is the second-best camping destination in the country after Rishikesh. But Unlike Rishikesh, it does not feature an array of adventure sports and is more of a destination for cooling off rather than jumping from mountains and rafting through waves.

The Kanatal village is well connected with neighboring tourist places such as Rishikesh, Mussoorie, Haridwar and it is not that far from the capital region, Delhi. Kanatal from Haridwar is 97 km, Kanatal from Rishikesh is 78 km, Kanatal from Mussories is 47 km and Kanatal from Delhi is 315 km. 

The best time to visit Kanatal is from is during the months of summer in the months of April-June but to make the trip a bit more sightseeing worthy, one can try visiting in the winters too.

The reasons you need to go on the Kanatal Camping in 2019 are far more than many but if you still got doubts then let us clear them up while you are on a trip to Kanatal with Justwravel.
