Next day we got up at 5.00 am to see the Sun rise but unfortunately we were not able to see it because of the cloudy weather. After having our Breakfast we started our journey for our next destination “Kanasar”. The road was good as compared to Deoban. Kanasar is located on Tuni highway at a distance of 30 kms from Chakrata. On the way we passed through the Apple / Pulam garden.
Kanasr is famous for Asia’s oldest & biggest Deodar tree with a circumference of 6.35 meters.
We had our tea in FRH & moved ahead.
After a ride of two & half hours , we reached Ramtal Garden . This was the only disappointing place for us. There was no Ram , no Tal (Pond) & no garden. . Ram Tal garden is a Horticulture garden which is located on Mussoorie road at a distance of 10-12 kms from Chakrata. There were couple of Apple , Pulam & Rhododendron (Burans) trees.
After wards we visited Chilmiri Neck , it is located at a distance of 3-4 kms from Chakrata. Chilmiri Neck is a cantonment area , passing through the Army flats.We reached at the peak from where the view was unforgettable.
We had our lunch at Shere Punjab Hotel – Sadar Bazar , which is very famous restaurant of Chakrata. You can ask any one about the location of Sardarji’s Hotel in Sadar Bazar . Food is too good but you have to ignore the ambiance. In Chakrata this is the only place where you can get the best food I think in whole Chakrata. Don’t forget to buy Chakrata’s famous Rajma, although it is quite costly (Rs. 120/- per Kg.) but it is worth. If some one wants to purchase army jackets, Sadar Bazar is the best place for that.
By the time we finished our Lunch & shopping it was just 4.00 PM. We thought of visiting Tiger fall which was scheduled for the next day. Tiger fall is approx 20 kms from Chakrata. We moved a couple of kms only the rain started but we continued our journey in hope that by the time we reach tiger fall , rain would stop. But unfortunately it was raining continuously .After 12 kms of drive there was a patch of muddy road where our car was skidding so moving further was not at all safe on that narrow road. Our driver also suggested that it is not safe to continue. We were so disheartened & we came back to our hotel.
For the next day we planned to start our journey early by 7.30 AM.as after visiting Tiger fall we had to visit Lakhamandal which is about 70 kms from Chakrata & than get back to Dehradun.
Tiger fall & Lakhamandal will be covered in next post.
So refreshing..I guess yours is the only car in sight…your daughters are cute, they must have enjoyed the trip immensely. What is the younger one showing in the 2nd pic..
Thanks a lot Rajeshwari for going through the post & leaving comment.
Its pulam in one hand & some local fruit in second hand.
As Dada said in the first one, your stories are ‘Complete’. :-)
All the places which you mentioned and the pics are a great treasure. When someone thinks of Chakrata, it is mostly about Tiger falls and then may be Deoban.
Eagerly waiting for Part 3.
Nandan , Thanks for your motivational comment. I liked all the places except “Ramtal Garden”
Part – 3 (Concluding part) is almost ready , will be published by next week.

I find a great wealth of information here. Thank you for the same. The photographs are pulling me, calling me to come. The 6.35 meter dia. of the tree makes this tree indeed a very unique identity.
